Roger is admitted to the US Districts Courts for the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas as well as the US Supreme Court and defends clients in Federal courts across the country. No matter how complex or simple the case, Roger has the experience and knowledge to handle it properly.

Roger started his career in criminal law in 1996 as a prosecutor for the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office before leaving to start his own criminal defense law firm in Dallas, Texas. Roger started, like most Assistant DA’s, handling misdemeanor level cases like DWI, Theft, and Possession of Marijuana.

After over 100 trials in less than a year Roger was promoted to handling felony level offenses and soon thereafter entrusted with prosecuting the most serious crimes in Dallas, physical and sexual abuse of children. Later Roger was promoted again and assigned to a criminal trial court and finally prosecuted Family Violence cases before leaving the DA’s office. After adding another 50 felony trials and 3 ½ years of experience, Roger opened his Dallas criminal defense firm.

Many lawyers never listen to the client or fully explain the process. Collin County Criminal Defense Attorney Roger Haynes takes the time to listen to you and address your concerns. Since 2000 Roger has focused on providing clients with representation that is both effective and aggressive but also remembers basic values like keeping the client informed.
