As a Felony Chief Prosecutor, Ben was responsible for supervising other felony attorneys and representing the State as lead counsel on important cases through trial such as murder, intoxication manslaughter, aggravated (armed) robbery, sexual assault, stalking, aggravated assault, family violence, attempted capital murder, attempted escape from a penal institution using a deadly weapon and probation revocations. In addition, Ben has been lead counsel and has tried many other types of felony and misdemeanor crimes such as DWI's, drug possession, drug delivery, search warrant cases, traffic stops leading to felony arrest, unauthorized use of a vehicle, theft, assault causing bodily injury, hindering apprehension, evading arrest, weapons violations, parks and wildlife violations, illegal dumping, trespass, and forgery among others.

Ben has examined many types of witnesses in pre-trial hearings and during trial including medical examiners (pathologists), doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, EMT's, fire marshals, police officers, sheriff's officers, DPS troopers, Texas Rangers, chemists, firearms examiner, latent fingerprint examiners, eye witnesses, lay witnesses, hostile witnesses, defendants, victims, surviving family of victims, probation officers, intoxilyzer (breath test) operators & technical supervisors, phlebotomists, records custodians, character witnesses and the like.

Remember, a criminal conviction does not "lapse" off of your record. A criminal conviction is not like your driving record or your credit history, time does not make it go away. Job applications always ask about your record, and many employers require background checks. The time to fight is BEFORE you are convicted.
