Attorney Kristen Beckman

Kristen graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from TCU and then studied law at SMU’s Dedman School of Law. Upon graduation, she was hired by the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor and was quickly promoted to chief of court where she supervised prosecutors preparing for trial and tried dozens of cases herself.

Upon resigning from the DA’s office, Kristen turned her focus to criminal defense. Having been trained by prosecutors, she knows how they think and how they prepare. She uses this knowledge to her clients’ advantage. Throughout the years, she has garnered a reputation for being ethical, professional, and trustworthy. From the very first phone call, she works to build a relationship with each client in order to best present a strong defense. Representing a defendant means not only appearing in court but also providing support, advice, and of course, being a vigorous advocate.

Kristen is admitted to practice in the U. S. District Court – Northern District of Texas and the U.S. District Court – Eastern District of Texas. She is a member of Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and serves as Treasurer for the Criminal Law Section of the Dallas Bar Association.
