Attorney Profile

For Phillip A. Linder, the legal profession is in the blood. For over 55 years, his family has served North Texas' legal community and criminal justice system. Mr. Linder adds to this legacy with over 27 years of experience representing the rights of those accused of crimes in the Dallas, Texas, area, with particular experience in federal and state white collar crime cases and complex federal conspiracy cases involving drugs or fraud. He also focuses a part of his practice on family law, including divorce, custody and visitation.

The Texas Board of Legal Specialization has certified Mr. Linder as a criminal trial specialist , making him one of a small percentage of Texas lawyers especially suited for large felony drug conspiracy cases and capital murder cases. In addition, he has been specifically approved in federal court to handle cases deignated as "complex" which applies to multi-defendant cases involving healthcare fraud and large drug conspiracies.  Before starting his private practice, Mr. Linder worked for the Dallas County District Attorney's Office, where he handled thousands of criminal cases with over 100 of them proceeding through jury trials.

After receiving his Bachelor of Business Administration in 1988 from Baylor University, Mr. Linder earned his Juris Doctor from Baylor Law School in 1991. He is admitted to practice law in the state of Texas; the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit; the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Eastern, Southern and Western Districts of Texas; and several U.S. District Courts for the Districts in Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Alabama and New Mexico.

Mr. Linder is highly respected by his peers and has been elected for various leadership positions in the legal community, including chairman of the Dallas Area Committee for Lawyer Discipline for three years and president of the Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. He has also been given the highest possible rating of AV-Preeminent* by Martindale-Hubbell, and has appeared in D Magazine's Best Lawyers in Texas edition.
