My name is Micah Belden and I am proud to be a criminal defense trial lawyer from Sherman, Texas.

Over the years, I have tried many jury trials and achieved real results for my clients.

I am not a "settlement" lawyer who gets the best deal possible and talks the client into it. I get the best deal possible and give people the reasons in favor of taking it and the reasons to reject it and go to trial.

Personal

Born and raised in Grayson County. I regularly try cases for a living in the following counties:

  • Grayson County
  • Collin County
  • Fannin County
Education
  • J.D. degree, University of Houston Law School,
  • Mock Trial Team, national champion, University of Houston Law School,
  • B.A. degree, Texas A&M University

In the last five years, I have completed 117.25 hours of Texas criminal law continuing legal education. This year alone, I have attended a post conviction remedy seminar in Austin, an advanced criminal defense course in San Antonio, and am scheduled to again take the State Bar's Advanced Criminal Law seminar to be a smarter lawyer for people.
