In San Antonio, choosing the right criminal defense attorney is the single most important decision you can make for yourself or a loved one. Often times, people mistakenly search for the lawyer that fits their budget and not the criminal lawyer that can save their life. This doesn’t just apply to major felonies like murder, robbery, family violence, and aggravated assault. This applies to even simple misdemeanors like shoplifting or DWI in which a probation plea can have profound effects on where you live, where you work, and whether or not you can coach your kid‘s after school soccer team. You owe it to yourself and the people you love to look for the best.

San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer Brian Powers has been helping clients for over a decade to fight accusations ranging from simple offenses like marijuana possession up to “capital murder”. In fighting these cases he uses his vast experience as a police officer, a prosecutor, and as a judge to guide his clients in the best possible outcomes in every single case. Many defense attorneys will attempt to use newer lawyers to finish out their cases once they’ve been hired. Brian Powers is the only face you see when you hire him for legal services. Don't leave your case, your freedom, and your name to a defense attorney you have never met.

Arrange an immediate and free consultation with Brian Powers to learn about your options. There is no worse feeling than the touch of cold handcuffs on your wrists and the unsettling feeling that you are alone. Don't fight your criminal case single-handed or with an attorney who just passed the bar. Fight it with an experienced attorney who will relentlessly defend your rights.

As a former decorated police officer, a former felony prosecutor and an accomplished criminal defense attorney, Mr. Powers can help protect your rights and your freedom. A felony arrest could mean serving anywhere from six months up to a lifetime in prison. A criminal charge, even a simple misdemeanor, can blemish your criminal record and have a permanent impact on your future.


“My experience with Mr. Powers was nothing short of brilliant and efficient. He was quick to respond to me when I first reached out and contacted him about retaining his services in my case. Brian explained things to me in a very upfront and simple fashion. That style, manner, and timeliness to communicate with me continued on through the end. I am fortunate to have retained him as an attorney in my case and together we achieved a quick dismissal. I have zero hesitation recommending others to retain Mr. Powers for their own legal situations. He represents himself with honor and integrity and will do what it takes to achieve the best outcome for you.” — Jason
