From the Lawyer (Sponsored)

Phillip A. Linder has been winning cases for his clients since 1996, when he first went into private practice. Prior to that, he earned his law degree from Baylor University Law School in 1991 and spent three and a half years prosecuting criminal cases at the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office. Here, he gained experience representing cases ranging from drunk driving to attempted capital murder.

Mr. Linder is admitted to handle cases in all Texas state and federal courts, as well as five federal districts outside of Texas.
