We have purposely remained a small firm in order to maintain affordable rates for our clients; yet our investment in technology and our affiliations with various local partners have allowed us to offer the same resources for criminal defense cases and high quality services one would expect from a larger firm.

In order to better serve our clients, we have concentrated our attention on the practice of criminal defenses, mental health, wills/probate and guardianship.  In doing so, we feel we are afforded the necessary time to spend with our clients--getting to know them, listening to what they have to say, understanding their legal situations and learning how best to provide for them. Should you find yourself in need of criminal defense representation for driving drunk, harrassment, robbery, drug possession, or one of the aforementioned areas, we stand ready to assist you.

A Note From Krista Chacona, Attorney at Law:
Hello. Thank you for visiting my web site and for your interest in my firm. As you can see, I have been practicing law in Austin and New York for close to 15 years. I attribute my success not only to being prepared and knowing the law, but to loving what I do.

 Legal issues can be scary and overwhelming, especially when there is no one there to explain things and guide you. I try to demystify the process and steer my clients through the system as quickly and painlessly as possible. I am not the least expensive or the most expensive attorney in the area, but I am one the most dedicated and hardest working attorneys you will ever know. If you need help, you should call me. - Krista
