Lisa M. Powell, Attorney at Law


Lisa M. Powell - Attorney at LawAttorney Lisa Powell attended Baylor University, and Baylor University School of Law. She graduated from law school in 1988, and was licensed to practice law in the State of Texas the same year. She worked as a Briefing Attorney for Justice Bob Thomas at the Tenth Court of Appeals in Waco. Since then, she has served as both a felony and a misdemeanor prosecutor and spent over ten years in private practice, representing clients in cases involving criminal defense, family law, personal injury, and general civil practice. She is a dedicated attorney, devoted to providing vigorous and zealous representation to every client in every case.

Ms. Powell has been practicing Criminal Law for 30 years, and has had tried more than 100 trials in criminal matters ranging from misdemeanors to capital murders. She has tried many types of cases, including murders, sexual assaults, drug cases, robberies, burglaries, assaults, thefts, and DWIs. Having been both a prosecutor and a defense lawyer, she has a unique perspective most criminal defense attorneys do not possess.

She has had experience with both sides of the bar, which puts her in a rare position to best defend those facing criminal charges. Her extensive courtroom experience as a prosecutor gives her unique expertise, and each case is handled with skill, professionalism, and unmatched competency. When accused of a criminal offense, it is imperative to have a skilled, aggressive advocate on your side.

In addition to Criminal Law, Ms. Powell is also experienced and well-versed in all types of Family Law, including divorce, child custody, modifications, and child support cases. When a marriage ends, emotions often run high, and it is important to know your rights. Ms. Powell is committed to providing the highest quality legal counsel in an atmosphere of caring and empathy.  She will vigorously pursue your personal objectives, while working closely with you to ensure the best possible outcome.

Wills, Medical Powers of Attorney, General Powers of Attorney, and Living Wills (Directives to Physicians) are also drafted for clients. All persons of legal age should have a will, and Ms. Powell will work with you to make sure your wishes and desires are made clear.

Ms. Powell also represents clients who have been injured in automobile accidents, or other types of accidents. She also handles cases involving the wrongful death of family members. In these matters, insurance companies may try to take advantage of you in your grief; it is important to have a skilled and competent attorney to advise you. I look forward to working with you, and being available to serve all of your legal needs.
