Jennifer is Board Certified in Juvenile Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
Performance - not Promises
Although Buck and Brett can never promise or guarantee the outcome of any criminal case (no lawyers can do this), they will work hard on your behalf - whether you are accused of possessing a small quantity of marijuana or driving while intoxicated or committing capital murder or participating in a federal drug conspiracy or possessing child pornography - or any other case. Their goal is to obtain the best possible result that they can for every client in every case.
Experienced Criminal Defense from Former Prosecutors
Buck and Brett have more than 70 years' combined experience prosecuting or defending criminal cases. Buck and Brett have both served as First Assistant Criminal District Attorneys in Smith County. Jennifer Garrett Deen, who is of counsel to the firm, is a former Assistant Criminal District Attorney in Smith County.
