About ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist Collin Evans from Texas



Collin Evans was born and raised in Texas. He attended The University of Texas where he
received his degree from the Red McCombs School of Business. After graduating, Collin
worked in the Intellectual Property division at Fulbright & Jaworski assisting with patent
prosecution. Before entering into law school, Collin trained in Muay Thai, Krav Maga, and
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu which instilled a sense of discipline, strong work ethic, and disposition to fight
that he has carried over into his law practice. He then went on to earn his Juris Doctorate from
South Texas College of Law.

In law school, Collin traveled as an advocate with Mock Trial teams for one of the top ranked
schools in the nation for trial advocacy. He also clerked for Justice Terry Jennings at the First
Court of Appeals, and at the criminal defense law firm of Stradley, Chernoff & Alford for three
years. After obtaining his law license, the firm hired Collin as their Associate Attorney where he
worked for the next several years fighting for clients and trying cases before founding his own
law firm.

Collin practices criminal defense law with an emphasis on DWI cases. He has helped clients
through difficult situations from initial investigations, to first time DWI offenses, to high profile
cases that garner intense media attention. Since becoming a lawyer Collin has obtained acquittals
or dismissals for his clients in a wide range of felony and misdemeanor cases, including DWI,
possession of controlled substances (drugs), assault, family violence, prostitution, arson, sexual
assault, Motion to Revoke Probation/Adjudicate and theft charges. As a member of the defense
team that represented Dr. Conrad Murray in the involuntary manslaughter charge for the death of
Michael Jackson, Collin experienced the intensity that the worldwide media can put on a highly
publicized criminal allegation and knows how to handle these types of cases with
professionalism and integrity.

Collin continually works to be prepared for every client’s situation. He completed the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)/International Association of Chiefs of Police
(IACP) Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Program, just like the police officers that administer
the roadside tests in DWI cases. Additionally, he has completed a comprehensive course on
Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE), as well as the Drug Evaluation
and Classification Program (DECP/DRE). He is an active member of The College of State Bar
Texas, National College for DUI Defense, DUI Defense Lawyer’s Association, and multiple
defense lawyer associations around the Houston area. He has been recognized as a Super
Lawyer and Texas Lawyer Rising Star for multiple years. He has also received the Avvo Client’s
Choice Award every year since starting his own firm in 2012. Collin represents clients in Harris,
Fort Bend, Galveston, Montgomery, Waller and Brazoria counties.

Collin is married with two daughters. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, coaching his girls’
softball teams, and playing guitar, bass and piano.
