The office of Cano & Denbina offers its Austin and Hill Country clients focused representation in both Criminal Defense and Family Law.  We pride ourselves on providing representation you can count on, and people you can trust.  With approximately 70 years of combined experience, the attorneys and staff at Cano & Denbina are ready to defend your legal rights.

Criminal Defense


Have you been accused of a criminal offense such as driving while intoxicated (DWI), possession of marijuana, theft, or assault family violence?

With decades of experience, the attorneys at Cano & Denbina will stand up for those facing potential prosecution in the criminal justice system.  If you or a loved one have been arrested, or there are allegations that you have violated the law, it is important to have effective legal representation.  The stakes are high in any criminal case where those accused can stand to lose their liberty and freedom.


In addition, the effects of a criminal prosecution can extend far beyond the court room into peoples’ work and home life.  If you have previously been convicted of a criminal offense it is important that you contact an attorney to see if you meet the requirements to having your records sealed from the public.


Contact us if you need representation or you have questions regarding an alleged criminal offense or past conviction.

Family Law


If you are considering divorce, or a child custody order, including a modification of a prior arrangement, you need a good family lawyer to guide you through the process. 


Divorces are stressful and emotional tensions can run high.  A good family lawyer will keep attention focused on what matters most in achieving your goals.  This firm will give you the confidence and peace of mind you need to move forward with your life.

No two divorces are the same.  Some are agreed while others are hotly contested, some have extensive property issues while others may have child custody disputes.  Regardless of your situation, hiring an attorney is often necessary to navigate the legal system.

Texas law also mandates that when children are involved the court is to enter orders that are in the “best interest” of the children.  This standard is extremely broad and the factors that contribute to determining what is in the children’s “best interest” will vary depending on the individual circumstances presented in each case.  And, for property, Texas law requires that all the property acquired during the marriage shall be divided in a just and right manner.  Often this means that the parties will divide the marital property 50/50, however in some instances one party may be entitled to a disproportionate share.

Are you ready to file?  Before filing for divorce we at Cano & Denbina always ask our clients to reflect and at times seek counseling to ensure that they are making the right decision.  If you have decided that you are ready to take the next step please find below a brief overview of the different stages of a divorce case.

If you have questions and would like to further discuss the divorce process please contact us for a free consultation.

Appellate Practice


The staff at Cano & Denbina is well versed in appellate law, handling both civil appeals and criminal appeals.

Appellate law is a nuanced skill and an arduous craft that should be reserved only for the appellate practitioner.  Our staff is adept at handling a wide array of appellate matters, including mandamus filings and appeals.

Contact us if you need representation before one of our state appellate courts.

Jail Release


If you need immediate assistance to get someone released from jail, let us help. Our phones are answered 24 hours.

If you have been arrested in Travis County, contact Cano and Denbina immediately to get your jail release. Working with a criminal defense attorney is often faster and less expensive than working with a bail bonds company. The Travis County jail release process can also be agonizingly slow without an attorney.


An additional benefit to calling us to secure your jail release is that is the fee you pay can be credited towards our representation on the criminal case.
