“People hire me to try cases. That’s what I do.” says criminal defense lawyer Martin LeNoir. In practice since 1982. LeNoir has represented citizens accused of crimes ranging from DWIs to capital murder. He began his career as a prosecutor working for legendary District Attorney Henry Wade before switching sides of the courtroom to defend individuals accused of serious crimes. “Having experience or handling criminal cases is one thing; obtaining not-guilty verdicts is another,” the Dallas native says. “I have tried many big cases to not-guilty verdicts, from murder and manslaughter to sexual assault and federal drug cases.”
LeNoir takes the tough cases – those make-or-break cases where an individual’s freedom, career, and reputation are at risk. His goal is to provide clients with a superior defense, he emphasizes quality over quantity at his firm, taking select cases to dedicate full resources to help clients achieve maximum results. LeNoir personally handles every case – no passing off to legal assistants or fellow attorneys. His dedication to his profession and his clients is evident in everything he does- from preparation to going before the judge and jury. In fact, LeNoir has been described by a former courtroom adversary as “a combination of a legal scholar, street fighter, and evangelist” – a testament to his formidable reputation as a trial lawyer.
