After screening several criminal defense lawyers in downtown Austin, I found Rick Flores at Minton, Bassett, Flores & Carsey, P.C., still confused and despairing in my former situation. Rick quickly put me at ease with his casual professionalism and gregarious nature. His expertise and seemingly endless, at-hand resources was impressive and entirely relieving. His pace, his empathy, and attentiveness while handling my case was constant, well communicated, and stress free. He offered fluid advice, simple instructions, and not only did I learn pertinent information about my legal situation through Rick during his employment, I found an ally to help overcome the burdens of my past trials. By the end of our ordeal, I couldn’t be more thankful for a professional of his caliber.
