Your Corpus Christi Criminal Defense Attorney

My name is Rick Dodson and I am proud to be your Criminal Defense Attorney in Corpus Christi and surrounding areas in South Texas.  I have a very rich and diverse background with experiences that make me a better attorney. 

I offer my criminal defense clients the perspective of a former law enforcement officer.  While I have the utmost respect for the police, I also realize they are not perfect and sometimes make mistakes.  As a former police officer, I know where those mistakes are usually made and can use that information to defend my clients.   I also have the investigative skills to uncover the flaws in the District Attorney's case that will lead to an acquittal.
