At Thomas & Paulk, every client is a top priority.

Over 7,000 Cases Handled

We have personally handled over 7,000 criminal cases. What we have is not just empty book knowledge—it is hands-on experience you can benefit from. For our clients, this means there will be no surprises, that we are fully aware of what they face, that we have a strategy to beat their charges, and that we have the ability to achieve the best possible result.

Both our attorneys started their careers in the district attorney’s office, which taught them everything they needed to know about the strategies used by prosecutors. Eventually, they realized they wanted to spend their lives defending people, not accusing them. Now, our firm uses their prosecutorial experience to help our clients defend their rights in court.
