    Trial Attorney

Monroe Solomon, III

Monroe Solomon III is a passionate advocate with considerable knowledge of the law. While the majority of his practice focuses on criminal defense, a small portion is dedicated to various family law issues.

Monroe is a talented trial attorney with a lot of experience defending high-level offenses. In only his third trial, Monroe assisted in a capital murder trial that ended with a reduction to a lesser offense. Since then, he has tried an array of high-level cases in both state and federal court including capital murder, white collar crimes, conspiracy, all levels of assault, sexual offenses, drug offenses, and DWI/DUI. Monroe’s knowledge and experience has rewarded his clients with many not guilty verdicts, dismissals, reductions, and the suppression of evidence.

Monroe’s work as a criminal defense attorney has earned recognition amongst the legal community and his peers. He currently serves on the board for the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Education Institute and is a founding member of the Indigent Defense Committee for the Tarrant County Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association. Monroe has also been named a Top 40 Under 40 Criminal Defense Lawyer in Texas by the National Trial Lawyers Association and Top 10 in Texas for Exceptional and Outstanding Client Service in Criminal Defense by the American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys.

Monroe’s knowledge and experience has also led to teaching opportunities. He frequently presents to other attorneys at various legal conferences around the state and is often asked to be a guest lecturer at Texas A&M University School of Law – Criminal Defense Clinic. Finally, Monroe teaches constitutional law at Southwestern Adventist University and is the faculty adviser for Students for Social Justice Awareness, an organization that helps students bring changes to their communities.

Outside of the legal practice, Monroe is a loving husband and father of two wonderful kids. He enjoys watching and playing all sports, and loves being outdoors with his friends and family.
