Effective Texas legal solutions for the people

Custom-Tailored Representation For Your San Antonio Legal Needs

Finding the right Texas lawyer is rarely easy. Many law firms will claim to be the best option for you, and they provide you with the same representation they give everyone else. Before you commit to a law firm’s services, you should know what level of representation you can expect from it.

My name is John Hicks, and I am an attorney with over 10 years of experience serving Bexar and Travis counties. At The Hicks Law Firm, I take the time to learn about each client’s unique needs before developing a personalized strategy to help them with their family law, criminal defense, estate planning or probate concerns.

What Sets Me Apart

I pride myself on my creativity when it comes to developing a plan to resolve criminal defense and family law cases in a swift and effective manner. To help me do this, I have earned a certification in mediation, which provides me with the resources necessary to resolve legal matters outside the courtroom.

I use my strong ability to relate to my clients to place myself in their shoes and motivate myself to pursue the outcomes they deserve in their cases. I use my previous experience as a Marine and my current experience as an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) worker and firefighter to help me make the critical decisions that come in my line of work as an attorney.

After having to make hard choices involving burning buildings, stabbings, shootings, cardiac arrests and car wrecks, I have learned how to keep a level head in any tense or stressful situation to get the job done and defend my clients.
