Experience and Knowledge for Criminal Defense and Family Law in San Antonio

Taking care of Texas families for more than 30 years

From the Law Office of Bill Baskette, I offer the people of San Antonio and the rest of Texas a guarantee — personalized and professional service from me, Bill Baskette. For more than 30 years, I’ve practiced law and served Texans through the legal system. I’ve been a district court judge, a prosecutor and a private practice attorney. Whether you’re going through a divorce or facing criminal charges, I offer experience, knowledge and concern that other attorneys just can’t match.

Focused on criminal law and family law

I believe that lawyers do best what they know best. My focus on criminal law and family law means that my clients gain the benefit of my proficiency in those areas. The criminal justice system is complex, confusing and frightening — I guide my clients through the process and the charges, and I help you protect your rights the entire way. When family law issues raise their ugly head, I take the time to inform you of your rights and obligations, and I give you guidance for the important decisions you need to make.

Criminal Law and Criminal Defense

Criminal charges are serious matters, even if the offense itself seems minor. Almost any criminal charge can result in serious fines or even jail time. At the Law Office of Bill Baskette, I understand the practice of criminal law and am prepared to help my clients through cases involving:
  • DWI
  • Domestic violence
  • Probation and parole violation
  • Internet crimes
  • Drug crimes
  • Sex offenses
  • Aggravated assault and murder
  • Felonies and misdemeanors
  • Motions to revoke probation
  • Protective orders
  • Traffic tickets
  • Wrongful accusations and convictions
When your future, freedom and reputation are at risk, you need to contact an experienced criminal law attorney who cares about you. Don’t take chances with your future.

Family Law, Divorce and Post-divorce

With your family on the line, legal disputes can be extraordinarily difficult. I’m dedicated to helping families find solutions that work for everyone involved, including both spouses and their children. My staff and I are committed to giving you personal, dependable family law services at this trying time in your life:
  • Child visitation
  • Child support
  • Child adoption
  • Post-divorce modifications
  • Relocation
  • Mediation
During my time as a judge, I heard numerous cases in the family court and I understand the nature of divorce and custody cases. My priority is to protect your interests and your family.


If you believe that a mistake or error in law or fact led to the wrong result in your case, I can help. I’ve argued cases before the San Antonio Court of Appeals, Texas Court of Criminal Appeals and the Texas Supreme Court. Appeals are vital to preserving your rights and have specific rules, including timing and documentation. They’re also often expensive matters that require active cooperation from our clients. My tenacity, the right arguments and the right approach can get you before a higher court and may even get you the result you want and need.

Knowledge, experience and an attorney you can trust

For over thirty years, I’ve worked for the people of Texas as a judge, a prosecutor and a lawyer. Every day I work hard to understand your challenges and defend you in the toughest matters, offering the options you need to succeed. Contact me today with a free email inquiry about how I can defend you, or call my office at 210.930.1200. My office is in downtown San Antonio, directly across from the Bexar County Courthouse, with plenty of street and lot parking within two blocks. I offer weekend and evening hours by appointment.
