Vivek Jampala

Vivek Jampala graduated from the University of Texas in 2008 with a BA in philosophy. Following undergraduate studies, Vivek spent time in Washington D.C. as an intern for Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson. Vivek attended Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio after which he returned to Texas and was admitted to the State Bar in 2012.  Once admitted to the bar, he focused his career towards providing faithful representation to individuals accused of a crime.

 In 2017, with lead counsel, Casie Gotro, Thomas Lane and Vivek Jampala helped successfully defended Bandido’s Dallas Chapter President Christopher “Jake” Carrizal from charges stemming from the Twin Peaks shootout in Waco, Texas. The McLennan County District Attorney’s Office indicted over 150 individuals for organized criminal activity and imposed excessive bail on nearly every defendant by accusing them of being gang members. Mr. Carrizal’s case was the only Twin Peaks case to go to trial. As a direct result of the factual inconsistencies and misconduct uncovered during Carrizal’s trial, all of the more than 150 cases resulting from the Twin Peaks shootout have been dismissed.

In 2019, after six years as a sole practitioner he co-founded Hunter, Lane & Jampala, where he remains focused on criminal litigation. He is a member of Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and the San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. He is licensed to practice in the State of Texas and in federal court including the Northern, Eastern, Southern, and Western Districts of Texas as well as the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
