At the Law Office of W. David Scales, we focus our practice on such legal areas as Criminal Defense, Family Law and Employment Matters.

  • Criminal Defense: David Scales, an experienced criminal lawyer, represents adults and juveniles facing a variety of misdemeanor and felony charges, including DUI/DWI.
  • Family Law: Family Law encompasses many legal matters pertaining to family dynamics. We work with clients who are facing divorce and child custody concerns and those wishing to pursue grandparents' rights. Often, we are able to resolve concerns through mediation rather than trial.
  • Family Immigration Law: The Law Office of W. David Scales can help immigrants (legal permanent resident, green-card holder) become U.S. Citizen. We prepare and file your U.S. citizenship application. We also prepare and file naturalization applications to obtain Certificates of Naturalization for children under the age of 18 who have automatically become U.S. citizens when their parents naturalized. We help U.S. citizens who are engaged to noncitizens obtain fiance visas for their spouses-to-be. We can also help you with residency and appeal issues, along with family law matters that may arise in conjunction with your immigration case.
  • Personal Injury: When filing a personal injury claim, one of the most important steps you can take is to find a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer to be your guide through the often tedious injury claim process. After an injury, The Law Office of W. David Scales encourages individuals to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Our Personal Injury Attorneys will provide you with the necessary information you need. We serve our Central Texas community when they face serious car accident and personal injury cases.
  • Employment Law: In our Employment Law practice, we work with individuals, including federal civilian employees at Fort Hood, in cases involving unfair or discriminatory treatment in the workplace. These cases include claims of discrimination, sexual harassment and whistleblower actions under the United States' Equal Employment Opportunity laws and United States' Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) appeals.
