Meredith Troberman was born in San Antonio, Texas but spent her childhood and early adult years in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.  Ms. Troberman attended the University of Texas at Austin and graduated in 2001.   Meredith then pursued her life long dream of becoming a lawyer and attended St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio and graduated in 2006.  Meredith became licensed to practice in both the State and Federal Court in 2006.

While in law school, Meredith gained invaluable experience beyond the classroom working as an intern in the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office. Before she even graduated, Meredith tried several cases, receiving a firsthand education on the criminal process through the “lens” of a felony prosecutor. Also while in law school, Meredith was a chosen member of the highly competitive St. Mary’s External Advocacy Program where she traveled all over the country and received numerous awards for her outstanding advocacy skills. Meredith was, on several occasions, recognized as one of the best oral advocates in her 2006 graduating class. 

After her third year of law school, Meredith was hired as a law clerk for famed San Antonio defense Attorneys Gerry Goldstein and Cynthia Orr; as seen on CNN, ABC, FOX, Court TV, 20/20 and many other news programs. After passing the Texas Bar Exam, Meredith accepted an attorney position with Goldstein, Goldstein and Hilley and worked on a number of State and Federal cases.  During this period of time, Meredith learned the defense process from pre-indictment all the way through the appeal from two of the very best criminal defense attorneys in the country, Gerry Goldstein and Cynthia Orr. 

After leaving Goldstein, Goldstein and Hilley in January of 2007, Meredith became a prosecutor in Austin, Texas.  As a prosecutor, Meredith gained extensive experience in the courtroom trying cases, as well as behind the scenes negotiating cases.  She understands cases from both the State and defense perspectives, easily recognizing issues and weaknesses.  Meredith is extremely familiar and comfortable in the Travis County Courts and with all the parties associated therein.  She uses this knowledge to the advantage of all her clients.   

After leaving the Travis County Attorney’s Office, Meredith chose to put her experience to work and open her own criminal defense firm, representing those accused of criminal conduct by the government.  Meredith’s law practice is dedicated to defending the rights of the criminally accused against prosecution by the State of Texas and the Federal Government.  Unto every case she has been part of, Meredith Troberman brings compassion, experience, and skill defending the criminally accused. Meredith enjoys yoga, running, snowskiing, spending time with family and friends, her two dogs, and is an avid Texas Football fan. Meredith currently resides in the Tarrytown Community of Austin, Texas.
