Hard work is satisfying, but the real reward comes in knowing you've treated others fairly and done the right thing.

It's a philosophy Tali Villafranca applies to everyday life.

Villafranca was named the Crossroads' best attorney in the Advocate's 2013 Best of the Best competition. This is his fourth consecutive win.

"I have lots of clients, and I appreciate them all," he said. "I've been blessed."

The Victoria native, who specializes in criminal defense, said devotion to his community and those he serves helps him stand apart from the rest.

He said he also tries to lend a hand to younger attorneys in need of advice.

"We shouldn't be greedy with the talents the good Lord gave us," he said. "If you share whatever talents you may have, I think that makes you a better person."
