A proud Texan, David L. Traylor was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, but from the
age of 18 months has lived in Dallas. Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s in the Preston
Hollow neighborhood of North Dallas, it was a different time; a time when kids spent
most of their time outdoors, free to roam neighborhoods and go where they
pleased. A kid’s bike was his “car” and his freedom. Friends and siblings could
pedal as far as they wished long as they could make it home by dark. He’s seen the
city and the surrounding towns experience tremendous growth and change. But to
him, what hasn’t changed are the feelings of freedom, undying positivity and

Those feelings have never left him and remain a big part of what drives him to help
others. He feels people should be free to enjoy their surroundings and continue to
progress in their lives. And if they stumble, he’s honored to be called upon to help
them keep that freedom. He enjoys helping clients put their problems behind them
to return to their normal lives.

He is an alumnus of Jesuit College Preparatory School in Dallas, Southern
Methodist University (SMU) and The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). He earned
a degree in Economics and Finance at UTD before returning to SMU to earn his law

Mr. Traylor has been recognized by his peers with the highest possible rating, ‘AV
Preeminent’ in ethical standards and legal ability through Martindale-Hubbell, a
recognition that only a small percentage of lawyers ever attain. He has earned a
10.0 out of 10.0 rating on Avvo and received their Client Choice Award in 2014. He
was recognized in 2015 as one of the Three Best Criminal Defense Lawyers in
Dallas by ThreeBestRated.com.

Mr. Traylor lives in revitalized downtown Dallas with his wife, enjoys travel, dining
and is an accomplished poker player. He recently became a member of MENSA. He
also truly enjoys helping his clients whom he says are typically good people in tough

Welcome to DFWCrimes.com…….unparalleled experience
You may be feeling anxious, confused, angry, scared or a multitude of other
feelings as a result of this ordeal. The sooner you start assembling your
defense with “the right attorney,” the sooner you can have your peace of mind
restored and your life restored to order.

Simply put, the attorney you employ when you hire the Law Office of Katheryn H.
Haywood has it all. With 20 years experience in criminal law, I am not new to
defending clients who need immediate solutions and true understanding of their
stresses and fears. My experience is simply unparalleled. As a former Assistant
City Attorney, an Assistant District Attorney, over 11 years as a municipal judge
and over a decade and a half defending serious crimes I have the experience to
DEFEND YOU and a proud advantage over other attorneys.

I have handled over 300 jury trials (YES, 300!) and over 3,000 criminal cases. I
handled everything from DWI to Murder. I excel in the defense of complicated
felony charges, including sexual assaults, child abuse charges, murder,
aggravated assault, family violence and dope charges.
I have had numerous not guilty verdicts and dismissals; I combine a
comprehensive defense strategy with a team work approach hiring private
investigators, expert witnesses and consultants as needed to bring you an
unequaled level of experience and expertise.

Why hire the Law Office of Katheryn H. Haywood?
I am widely recognized as one of the BEST trial attorneys in North Texas
(DFW).  Other local attorneys often seek out my advice and counsel on their
cases, and I’m often hired to supervise or assist them in their criminal trials.

When you hire me, I represent you. I do not send an associate to plead your
case; no paralegal drafts your motions and when you call to discuss your case,
you speak with me. I personally handle any case on which I am hired from the
initial arrest to the conclusion of the proceedings. I return all phone calls and
emails personally and strive to take some of the fear and anxiety out of the
criminal justice system.

Being charged with a crime is emotionally taxing and can overwhelm every family
member of the accused. Have an attorney who understands this stress is
paramount to surviving the experience.

Over 20 Years Experience In Criminal Law
Nothing puts an anxious client’s nerves at ease better than an attorney with over
2 decades of battle-tested success and passion, know-how and sheer moxie to
fight relentlessly for each and every client. In addition, nothing makes an
opposing District Attorney more nervous than facing a defense attorney whose
reputation they know and whom the courts and judges respect. When you work
with The Law Office of Katheryn H. Haywood, you’re working with an attorney
that has successfully conquered virtually every scenario our criminal justice
system can contrive.

The Bottom Line: successful outcomes for clients facing criminal charges
Let’s face it, when you are in the position of needing a criminal defense
attorney, you want a criminal defense lawyer who knows how to WIN! While
fighting for and receiving a successful outcome for my clients is routine, what is
not common is the special care and strategic thought that goes into each and
every client’s case. I am accessible to all of my clients and will devise a plan of
attack that will best ensure success for YOU.

To paraphrase Gerry Spence, one of the greatest criminal defense attorneys of
all time, winning embraces the articles of war, that whatever is necessary to win
is acceptable in the genre of war, and criminal cases in Texas are wars. No less.
Betsy Branch
679 Justin Road, Rockwall, Texas 75087
Office 469-600-3334 Fax 469-453-3340


Betsy Branch is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal
Specialization—a distinction held by less than 850 of the more than 105,000 active,
licensed Texas attorneys. She is also the only female attorney with a primary office in
Rockwall County to hold this distinction. Betsy graduated from Mississippi College
School of Law in 1990 after having completed her Bachelor of Arts in History at Lamar
University in Beaumont, Texas. Betsy was admitted to the bar in November 1990.

Betsy is AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, meaning she is recognized by her peers to
have high ethical standards and legal abilities. Betsy has an AVVO Rating of 10.0
Superb for her skills and ethics. She has been named a Texas Super Lawyers® for
eight consecutive years. She practices family law with her son, Ryan Branch, who was
admitted to the bar in 2016 and has also been named to Texas Super Lawyers as a
Rising Star. Betsy frequently writes and speak about family law issues; she has
appeared on NBC’s “Today Show.” Betsy’s commitment to healthy children includes her
service on the board of the Texas Pediatric Society Foundation. Betsy also served on
the board of Women in Need located in Rockwall and Hunt counties, providing services
to victims of family violence.

“My goal is to help people in crisis. Thirty years of courtroom experience gives me
valuable insight on cases involving infidelity, property division, child custody, abuse,
and child support. I spent the first eight years as a lawyer trying family violence cases
as an Assistant District Attorney in Bexar County and as an Assistant County Attorney
in Guadalupe County. Prosecuting family violence/assault cases gave me an up-close
view into the dynamics of a violent household. My four years as an Assistant Attorney
General in the Child Support Division of the State of Texas provided valuable
experience in all matters of child support. Representing hundreds of clients throughout
the years have revealed to me how often alcohol abuse, substance abuse, job
instability, and/or mental health issues are factors in divorce, child custody, and child
support matters.”

“Clients need someone to listen. I know that when I listen to their stories, I am able to
formulate a roadmap to guide the client through the emotionally charged divorce or
child custody suit. I believe that educating my clients and providing resources to them
helps the client to make a sound, informed decision during a chaotic and high conflict
period. I strive to be compassionate while being honest with my clients. I want each is
not something that the client wants to hear. Family law involves very subjective
concepts of “just and right” and “the best interest of a child.” The subjective nature of
family law means that each case is different and fact specific. My goal is to tailor a
workable result that best fits the need of my client’s life as he or she moves forward into
a new chapter.”

of other parties in cases involving premises liability as well as workplace accidents
and truck and other motor vehicle crashes. His criminal defense cases have
