Criminal defense lawyer Abundio Rene Cantu brings practical experience along with in-depth legal knowledge to the table when advocating for the accused. While still in law school, he gained knowledge of federal criminal matters while working as a law student clerk in a U.S. attorney’s office.
He began his legal career after graduating from law school as an assistant district attorney, handling numerous drug crime cases and other criminal matters. From that firm foundation of experience ranging from minor marijuana offenses to major trafficking crimes, he was a prosecutor for the 49th Judicial District of Texas.
He has been a sole practitioner for more than five years, applying his knowledge and the benefit of his experience on the government’s side for the benefit of clients facing criminal charges.
In all areas of the law, he is well-educated and experienced in the immigration consequences for legal permanent residents and noncitizens in the U.S. on visas, such as work visas. As a bilingual attorney speaking Spanish and English, he is often in demand to represent Hispanics and nonHispanics alike accused of drunk driving, drug crimes, and violent crimes.
Every case and every client is unique and requires individualized review and investigation to determine the most promising way forward.
