Dax has received an AVVO Client’s Choice Award for 2021, which is an honor based on his positive reviews from his past legal clients who rated him on his legal performance.
He is committed to providing excellent service, efficiency, and value.
Mr. Pueschel knows that having an attorney who understands you and your personal circumstances—not just your legal issue—makes a significant difference in your experience with the legal system and your case resolution.
Review some of the results that Dax has attained for his clients.
Dax has also formed an online Facebook group as a safe virtual place for information & resources related to addiction, recovery, & redemption in the Abilene, Texas & Big Country area. https://www.facebook.com/groups/redeemingaddiction
The idea is for you to consume (take without giving back), not necessarily contribute.
Further, this group is available to point you to life-giving resources in the community & is NOT meant as a one-stop recovery shop, meaning you shouldn’t look to this group as a final fix, but rather an encouragement to pursue services.
EXPERIENCE COUNTS IN A CRIMINAL ATTORNEY
Dax Pueschel was raised in Abilene and Haskell, Texas. He attended Jackson/Madison/Cooper in Abilene but graduated from Haskell High School.
He earned his bachelor’s degree at McMurry University, completed a police academy in Abilene, and then began working as a probation officer in Abilene starting in 2008. He was also a probation officer in Dallas County, Texas for several years before completing law school at UNT Dallas College of Law.
He currently practices law in and serves the communities of Abilene, Haskell, and the surrounding areas, but will travel for the motivated client.
A MODERN LAWYER’S PERSPECTIVE AND PERSONAL STATEMENT
I am a Christian, which shapes my perspective on everything—including my purpose as an advocate, criminal lawyer, and counselor I fall short daily but look to Jesus for new mercies every morning. I am also a proud husband, father, and friend.
Proverbs 16:9 says that “a man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps”.
I think I am where I need to be for a purpose: to be a voice; to listen; to fight; to care; to afford my clients a new lawyer experience; to help my clients leave in a better position than they came—whether legally, personally, or both.
I believe in holistic representation, meaning that your legal issue usually is not the only stressful event or struggle in your life. Most of my clients are experiencing a landmark moment in their lives when they reach my office. Those landmark moments are important to me because I know firsthand what it is like to be broken, to need help, and to crave a plan—a way out. One quote that resonates with me is: “The only way out is through.” I do not know who said it, but I think it is true.
When you show up to my office, your concerns and burdens become my own, because you are trusting me to navigate you through a difficult time in your life.
I most enjoy engaging clients in their journey in recovery and redemption. My primary practice revolves around substance use & abuse-related cases and cognitive-behavioral issues.
I seek to afford my clients avenues for change, including but not limited to: sobriety meetings; in & outpatient services; cognitive behavioral therapy & counseling; mental health services; lifestyle choices, like eating, sleeping, & exercise habits; community resource assistance; self-help education; practical reading resources.
I love clients that are ready for a lifestyle change. Like all of us at some point, we reach a moment in our lives regarding a certain issue that we know needs change—an area we have sometimes neglected for years.
My job is to meet you where you are and point you to the pathway out.
I enjoy clients who have that inner drive to do what it takes to survive, to learn, to grow, and to persevere. I do realize that we cannot always be the hero of our own story and that is a lot of what I like about my work: the need for community; engagement; support.
