Therese lives and practices in San Antonio, Texas. She is known to her friends and colleague as “Teri”. After graduating from St. Mary’s University, cum laude, with a bachelor’s degree in political science, she received her Juris Doctorate from St. Mary’s School of Law.

After passing the bar, Teri practiced under the mentorship of one of the city’s most prominent criminal defense firms. In addition to trying criminal cases, Teri did most of the firm’s work in the family law section. Her time working on family law cases has made her proficient in family law litigation and how it intersects with criminal cases.

It is important to have an attorney who understands how to negotiate and navigate difficult matters that have many layers. You don’t always want a “bull in the china shop” representing you. It is critical that your attorney understand how to negotiate and recognize when it is time to fight your case in court. Many lawyers will tell you to take every case to trial and fight it in court. That isn’t always the best solution. You need someone to bridge the gap between family and criminal law issues.

As a recognized trial attorney, opponents know that Teri will fight for her clients. This aids in negotiations, and if negotiations fail, Teri’s unparalleled trial advocacy skills will finish the job.
