Attorney Profile

Our firm focuses on helping good people with criminal issues.  We are a boutique firm that represents fewer clients at an exceptional level.  We have represented business executives, community leaders, and their children in the most important of criminal matters. We address the current criminal issue, the visibility of any future criminal record, and any underlying problems or addictions that may have contributed to the current allegations.

As leaders at the Dallas DA's office, we helped institute the nation’s largest DA led diversion program, which offers expunction or non-disclosure to many offenders who complete state rehabilitation requirements. Our extensive knowledge of diversion programs, specialty courts, and other reform programs allow us to help many clients avoid the long-term effects of a criminal history.

Kendall has more than 15 years of criminal law experience. After an exemplary career at the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office, where he left as the Administrative Chief, he founded Madson Castello, PLLC with his partner Messina Madson (former First Assistant and acting District Attorney for Dallas County).

We handle all types of criminal matters including:

Aggravated Assault

Child Abuse

Domestic and Family Violence Assault

Drug Offenses

Driving While Intoxicated--DWI


Intoxication Assault and Manslaughter




Self-Defense Issues

Sexual Assault


White-Collar Crimes
