Criminal defense attorney Jason S. English was voted by his peers for inclusion as one of Austin's Top Attorneys for 2021 in Austin Monthly magazine. In his role as a criminal defense attorney, English believes that though we all make mistakes, we all deserve a second chance.
This philosophy drives him as he helps people get their second chance. English knows that the “effects of an arrest and criminal charges can have long-lasting, expensive consequences on a person's life. In such cases, the only thing that stands between a light sentence and a much stiffer punishment is an experienced criminal defense attorney.”
Not only is English an experienced criminal defense attorney, but he is also a former prosecutor with years of experience prosecuting the same crimes for which his clients now face charges.
English represented the State of Texas, where he worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Cameron, Hays, and Travis Counties from 2002-2017. His extensive experience includes years as the Chief Misdemeanor Prosecutor and Lead Felony Prosecutor. He handled not just Violent Crimes but also handled Drug Cases, Assault Cases, and DWI's. He was also assigned to the Public Integrity Unit for many years, prosecuting White Collar Fraud, Corruption, and Public Officials. For more than seven years, he worked in-house as the only Assistant District Attorney on-site advising the Austin Police Department.
Additionally, English served as the Felony Prosecutor that handled all cases assigned to the Mental Health Docket and Veterans Court Docket. He understands how mental illness can affect a crime and punishment. Drawing from his extensive experience and established reputation within the legal community, English helps clients obtain the best possible resolution of their case.
Given his impressive background, it is no surprise that his peers voted English as one of Austin's Top Criminal Defense Attorneys for 2021. He fights for his clients and their second chances.
