Texas Lawyer Award
Clint Broden named Appellate Lawyer of the Week – Jan. 16, 2012
Rarely is a criminal lawyer given this honor. It was given for his recent appellate victory in which he reversed a client's 21 year prison sentence.

March, 2014:

Mick Mickelsen Wins Big
Ellen Chen Yeh was found not guilty on all counts relating to allegations of theft of trade secrets from Texas Instruments after a two week trial before Federal judge Jorge Solis.

Clint Broden Prevails
In March 2014, Clint Broden prevailed on an 11.07 writ for a client in the Court of Criminal Appeals. Client was sentenced to fifteen years for aggravated kidnapping. Clint filed a Writ of Habeas Corpus claiming that trial counsel was ineffective for not objecting to references to client’s criminal history. The District Court in Fannin County found that the trial attorney was deficient but recommended that writ be denied because client was not prejudiced. After ordering full briefing, CCA granted the writ in a unanimous opinion finding both deficient performance by trial counsel and prejudice.

Serial Killer Tommy Lynn Sells is Executed in Texas Despite Death Drug Concerns

  Convicted serial killer Tommy Lynn Sells has been executed in Texas despite his claims the drug that would be used to kill him could deliver an unconstitutionally painful death.
