San Antonio Criminal Trial Lawyer

Fighting Serious Criminal Charges in State and Federal Court

If you are facing serious criminal charges, you need a lawyer who is prepared to go to trial, if necessary, to ensure that your rights are protected — one who will provide you with personal attention and take the time to understand the facts of your case and your side of the story.

I am Sylvia A. Cavazos, an experienced San Antonio criminal trial attorney. As a solo practitioner, I personally handle every case I accept from start to finish, defending clients throughout south-central Texas against criminal accusations in state and federal court.

An Experienced Former Prosecutor Protecting Your Rights

I entered private practice as a criminal defense attorney in 2007 after serving for almost 10 years as an assistant district attorney in Bexar County. As a prosecutor, I worked under two successive district attorney administrations, trying felony, misdemeanor and juvenile matters.

As a result of my experience as a prosecutor, I understand how the government investigates, prepares and tries criminal cases. As a criminal defense lawyer, I use that knowledge to protect my clients' rights and help them fight to avoid or reduce serious criminal penalties.
