Welcome: Criminal defense attorney David Frank is based in Austin, Texas and has a reputation for being a tough and experienced criminal trial lawyer. In April of 2014 he challenged the Texas Mandatory DWI Blood Draw Statute in two test cases. The appellate courts agreed and found that the Mandatory Blood Draw Statute runs afoul of the Fourth Amendment. In November 2014 he helped lead a State-Wide effort against a SOAH rule change. That effort led to a simpler process to subpoena witnesses for ALR Hearings.
David Frank has been an attorney since 1993. He is a Past President of the Austin Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and is Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. An attorney who is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Criminal Law must have experience in the preparation and trial of serious criminal matters. The attorney must also have extensive knowledge of state and federal constitutional law, evidence, procedure and penal laws involved in the trial of these matters.
Well known among members of the Austin Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, Mr. Frank has devoted his practice to representing individuals accused of crimes.

His law office uses the most up to date electronic legal research tools to find the cases that help his clients get results.
His many years of practice in the Austin and Travis County areas have given him a unique insight in dealing with the courts. As a criminal defense attorney, avoiding unfair penalties is the primary goal. Mr. Frank explores alternatives to incarceration as he works to resolve his cases. As a criminal defense attorney, he knows the prosecutors and the judges – and that is essential to being effective in the courtroom. Unlike some attorneys who advertise that they are “criminal defense trial lawyers” despite the fact that they never have taken a case to jury trial, Mr. Frank actually does try his cases.
