Attorney Profile

Flint Schneider was born and raised in Carrollton, Texas and attended college at the University of North Texas. After college, Flint attended law school at Texas Wesleyan School of Law, now known as Texas A&M School of Law, where he competed extensively in mock trial and completed internships in all aspects of criminal law.

Following law school, Flint began working at the District Attorney's office where he handled hundreds of cases ranging from misdemeanor DWI to Capital Murder. A veteran of over 25 felony and misdemeanor trials, Flint's last trial was a prosecution for Capital Murder in which the State sought the death penalty. In addition to his extensive work as a trial prosecutor, Flint also spent time as a Grand Jury prosecutor and was stationed at the police department. In this position, Flint worked closely with detectives to determine which felony cases should be presented to the grand jury, which cases should not, and which cases needed more evidence before they could be presented. But his heart was not in criminal prosecution.

Since March of 2016, Flint Schneider has operated The Law Office of Flint Schneider, committed to providing effective, affordable, and proactive criminal defense in Denton County, Dallas County, Tarrant County, Collin County, and beyond.
