At the Law Office of Roberto Ambrosino, PLLC, in San Antonio, Texas, Roberto Ambrosino takes immense pride in steadfastly advocating for the accused and individuals facing challenging legal circumstances. Roberto grew up in a working class household near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and became a first generation college graduate. His devotion to diligence and sacrifice is evident in his collaborative efforts with clients to actualize comprehensive legal representation.

Focusing on criminal defense matters, encompassing felonies, misdemeanors, DWIs, theft and assaults, Mr. Ambrosino has garnered extensive experience, successfully managing thousands of criminal cases across more than 40 Texas counties. His clientele is diverse, ranging from educators, medical professionals, students, and nurses to fellow legal practitioners and hardworking individuals from various walks of life. Moreover, he has earned an impressive reputation with over 100 positive client reviews and peer endorsements.

Mr. Ambrosino pursued his legal education on scholarship at Texas Tech University School of Law, attaining his J.D. in 2008. During his law school years, he engaged in a meaningful internship with the Innocence Project, where he meticulously reviewed letters from incarcerated individuals and scrutinized claims of wrongful imprisonment. Additionally, Mr. Ambrosino served as a research assistant for a distinguished law professor, contributing to the publication of the article titled "Throwing the Baby Out with the Bathwater: A Call to Reinstate the Public Housing Drug Elimination Program" (Vol. 18, No. 4) in the American Bar Association Journal of Affordable Housing and Community Development Law. Also, he functioned as a student lawyer for the Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas, representing clients in court before even graduating from law school.

Commencing his professional career, Mr. Ambrosino secured a position at a prominent civil rights law office. Notably, one of the most challenging cases he addressed revolved around erroneous positive results in urinalysis drug tests conducted by the Bexar County Probation Department and their affiliated drug laboratory. This experience heightened his awareness of injustices within the criminal justice system and ultimately inspired the establishment of his own criminal defense practice in 2009.

Beyond his legal practice, Mr. Ambrosino has held participation in several organizations, such as the San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the San Antonio Young Lawyers Association, the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the Criminal Justice Section of the State Bar of Texas and the Texas Bar College.
