Joseph Strickland, AttorneyJoseph Strickland has been practicing criminal defense law since 2010. Mr. Strickland has represented clients across Texas, and is licensed in the United States Federal Court for the Western District of Texas. Mr. Strickland is experienced defending clients with charges ranging from Drug Possession to Murder, and he has specialized in sealing clients’ arrest records through Petitions for Expunction and Non-disclosure.

Mr. Strickland was born in San Antonio, raised in New Braunfels, and has lived in the area throughout his life. Mr. Strickland received a bachelor’s degree in Business Management from the University of Texas at Austin. After receiving his undergraduate degree, he returned to San Antonio to attend the University of St. Mary’s School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctorate in 2010 and was licensed to practice law that same year.

While attending law school, Mr. Strickland worked as an intern at the Supreme Court of Texas as well as the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office.

“I believe that the United States has the greatest criminal justice system in the world, but it is not perfect. Every day people are taken advantage of and exploited by the system. Our clients will not be taken advantage of. Our clients will not be bullied.”
