David T. Owens

Attorney and Counselor at Law

David was raised in Lubbock, Texas, where he attended Lubbock High School. He is a 1994 graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, and earned a Juris Doctorate degree from Texas Tech University School of Law in 1997. During law school, David worked at the Lubbock County District Attorney's Office in the Appellate Section where he handled appellate issues and tried misdemeanor cases. Upon graduation, David began his legal career serving as the Briefing Attorney to then Presiding Judge Michael J. McCormick of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. After his clerkship with Texas' highest court for criminal matters, David continued his criminal law career working as an Assistant District Attorney for Tarrant County, Texas.

As a prosecutor in Tarrant County, David was quickly promoted from handling misdemeanor cases to felony matters. As an Assistant District Attorney, he was lead counsel in over 80 criminal jury trials and negotiated pleas bargains in hundreds of cases, both misdemeanor and felony.

David eventually left the District Attorney's Office to pursue a career in private practice as a civil litigator. He worked for one of the largest law firms in the United States representing Fortune 500 companies across the nation. David has worked as national defense counsel for international companies in both state and federal courts, and has handled a wide range of litigation matters which included significant personal injury claims, product and premise liability, medical malpractice, and wrongful death.

David maintains a practice focused on State and Federal criminal defense and personal injury litigation. He defends individuals who are facing criminal charges stemming from DWI, assault, theft, drug possession and various other misdemeanors and felony crimes. As a former prosecutor, he knows how the government thinks and how the system works. David applies that knowledge to his clients' advantage. David is passionate about justice. He believes every person has the right to a fair and vigorous defense when faced with the prospect of losing his or her freedom. His motto is:

"The good lawyer is not the man who has an eye to every side and angle of contingency, and qualifies all his qualifications, but who throws himself on your part so heartily, that he can get you out of a scrape." – Ralph Waldo Emerson
