At Texas Criminal Defense Group, Stephen Hamilton, Deandra Grant, Shane Byrd, Tommy Hull and the rest of the team work tirelessly defending those in their community who are looking for help. Hamilton is heavily involved in his Texas community, consistently attending university events and working with local businesses to give back to those who have put a lot of hard work into making their home a better place.

One of the many reasons the attorneys at Texas Criminal Defense Group practice law is to dedicate themselves to giving back and helping those who are most in need of help. They seek opportunities to assist those in their community whenever they can, and that is why they are happy to announce the Texas Criminal Defense Group Giving Back Scholarship.

These Texas attorneys believe it is important to empower people to participate in their community by also helping them to fulfill their full academic potential. They want to celebrate those unique students who have committed themselves to their education and to helping others.
