Distinguished San Antonio Attorney

undefined

Born and raised here, Neil has a true appreciation for the San Antonio and South Texas culture. Attended Roosevelt High School, University of Texas in Austin, San Antonio College, University of Texas at San Antonio, and St. Mary’s University College of Law. Neil began his legal career working for the very Best Criminal Defense Lawyers of their time: Gerry Goldstein, Van Hilley and Mark Stevens.

Neil was the Continuing Legal Education Editor for the monthly publication for the San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. He has served as a course director for Continuing Legal Education Courses. He has served as an Adjunct Law Professor at St. Mary’s University School of Law. He has also been an active member in the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and Texas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He has mentored numerous other lawyers that have excelled as criminal defense lawyers.

Neil has represented other Lawyers, Police Officers, Probation Officers, Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacist, Accountants, Stock Brokers, Pilots, Train Conductors, Teachers, Real Estate Agents, high level Drug Dealers, murderers, pimps, prostitutes, fighters, club owners, dancers and many more. He takes his job seriously and takes each case personally.

Neil has been involved with numerous high profile cases that have made local, state and sometimes national news. He has a reputation as an aggressive, smart, tough, but caring lawyer, who puts tremendous effort into each case.

From 1997 to 2015, Neil had successfully represented thousands of individuals. From early 2015 to the end of 2017, Neil Calfas temporarily joined forces with Marc LaHood, and formed the firm of LaHood & Calfas PLLC. Having tried Federal and State Jury trials together – and having never lost a State Jury Trial as a team – Neil knew that as a law firm they would create an immediate powerhouse.

Immediately upon creating LaHood & Calfas PLLC on March 3, 2015, they began hiring the very best lawyers to work with them. They hired Robbie Ward, Esq., Chase Butler, Esq., and Sergio Ybarra, Esq.. Robbie has been a high ranking state prosecutor, and a Federal Prosecutor, before becoming recognized as one of the Best Criminal Defense Lawyers even before joining LaHood & Calfas PLLC. Sergio has served several positions as a State Felony Prosecutor, but was most recognized as the second-highest ranking prosecutor in the Bexar County DWI Task force. Upon gaining trial experience in the Bexar County District Attorney’s office, Chase Butler, Esq. focused his efforts on Family Law, handling divorces and child custody.

This team took the next step and became Calfas Law Group, PLLC at the end of 2017. Leigh Cutter, Esq., who had formerly been the lead Trial Attorney with distinguished attorney Alan Brown, joined Calfas Law Group during this same time period.

Neil and the other lawyers at Calfas Law Group are regularly recognized as the very best lawyers in San Antonio.
