As an advocate, Ryne Sandel will fight for his clients. Ryne prides himself on his ability to stand toe to toe with anyone in the courthouse. Cutting his litigation teeth by winning numerous awards in national level mock trial competitions, he was coached, trained, and mentored by some of the best litigators in the state of Texas. Ryne has succeeded in every stage of litigation, from winning written motions, obtaining favorable rulings in oral hearings, and winning jury verdicts. He has the skill, the training, and the experience necessary to fight tooth and nail for everything his clients deserve.

As a negotiator, Ryne Sandel will make the opposing side see reason. A good lawyer will fight for his client, but a great lawyer can recognize when it would be most beneficial to come to an agreement. As a trained mediator, Ryne recognizes the power and importance of negotiation. He understands how to gain and utilize leverage in order to walk away from the bargaining table with the very best offer the other side is willing to give.

As a counselor, Ryne Sandel will be the sword, shield, and guidepost that his clients need. Facing criminal charges can be stressful, confusing, frustrating, and embarrassing. Earning his Psychology degree from Texas A&M University, Ryne understands and appreciates the stresses involved in this process. As such, he focuses on being as client-centered as possible. You are not a case number, but a person. He purposefully makes himself available to his clients at all times and will always gladly take the time to explain every step of their case.
