Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
In just its first year, the Thiessen Law Firm fought for justice for more than 200 persecuted clients, helping the wrongly accused return home to their families. As the firm moves into its second year, it stands ready to continue and expand those efforts.
“When you’re accused of a crime, not matter how small, it’s a big deal. Unfortunately, too many people just don’t know where to turn,” said Mark Thiessen, chairman and CEO. “In America, you’re innocent until proven guilty. I stand sternly behind that principal.”
Mark, a Texas Christian University and South Texas College of Law-educated lawyer, started the firm to give competent, solid counsel to people unjustly charged with a crime. Over the years, he has proven himself to be a knowledgeable, keen defense attorney, and his legal pedigree is widely recognized. Among his numerous honors, he has been named an “Up-and-Comer” by the Houston Press, a “Texas Super Lawyer Rising Star” by Texas Monthly Magazine every year since 2010, was awarded the 2012 HCCLA Unsung Hero Award, has frequently been a news commentator on DWI and other criminal cases, and he was designated the number one speaker at several seminars around Texas.
While attending STCL, Mark was active in various law societies, studied International Criminal Law at the University of Malta during the summer of 2001, and studied abroad at the BPP Law School in London and at the University of Hawaii. These unique legal environments required him to be able to adapt to various social, cultural, ethnic and economic groups, which is evident in his personality today.
Mark started Thiessen Law Firm after three years working civil matters and five years as a criminal trial lawyer with Trichter & Murphy.
No criminal accusation is too daunting for Mark and his skilled team. They handle:
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
Dedicated to bringing justice to everyone who needs it, the law firm takes the cases of military veterans to trial for free and helped vindicate one young boy for beating up his bully.
“Everybody deserves a strong defense of the accusations against them,” Mark said. “That’s what the Thiessen Law Firm is all about and why we’ve dedicated ourselves to providing the best, most knowledgeable defense possible.”
Mark is co-chair of the Young Lawyers Committee with the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (TCDLA) and the youngest member of the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association (HCCLA) Board of Directors.
On August 30, 2012, Mark won the highest gas chromatography blood verdict (0.228) DWI in Harris County. Mark continues to win cases that should not be won thanks to his personality fearless trial demeanor.
