We have compiled information on this website and hope you find it helpful in learning about our criminal defense practice, drug practice, DWI defense practice, Texas criminal law and the entire criminal justice system. But remember that the unique details of your particular situation and the strategy that your criminal lawyer employs can also make a big difference in your case. Contact us now so we can review your case and answer your questions.
Whether you have already been charged or you are only under investigation at the moment, it is important to hire professional legal representation as soon as possible. No matter what the accusation, it is never a simple to address these types of accusations. Even if you are completely innocent, you may still be arrested or convicted.
Waiting too long to hire a criminal defense lawyer is a common mistake that can severely impact the quality of your defense. Before you are formally arrested, the police will conduct an investigation. If we have an opportunity to conduct our investigation, we may be able to catch mistakes in the police investigation and potentially keep you from getting arrested in the first place.
There is also a period of time before the district attorney will file charges. You may or may not be arrested before charges are filed. If you hire us early, we may have an opportunity to prevent charges from being filed. In felony cases, there is a similar period of time before an indictment is filed.
The bottom line is that if you have an opportunity to hire a criminal defense attorney sooner rather than later, do not pass up the opportunity. Please do not hesitate to give us a call now at (888) 239-9305 or contact us online.
You should be represented by a criminal lawyer from the moment that you are under investigation for a crime. In many circumstances, it may be difficult to know whether you are being investigated until it’s too late, so call us immediately if you have any concern about a pending investigation. If you have already been arrested or charged with a crime, you should not hesitate to hire a criminal defense lawyer. After you are arrested or charged with a crime, a criminal defense attorney can help protect your rights during an investigation by the police or other law enforcement agency. After you are arrested, a criminal lawyer can represent you in court and advise you about the best strategies to defend you and protect your freedom and all of your rights.
There is no such thing as the best criminal defense attorney. Every criminal lawyer has his or her own strategies, style and resources. You should find the defense attorney who makes you feel the most comfortable. We go to extraordinary lengths to make sure that our clients feel that we are the best for them. We believe our criminal defense attorneys have the cutting-edge resources, knowledge, skill, passion and talent to obtain the best possible result for each of our clients.

Once you hire a criminal defense lawyer, your lawyer should give you a list of things to do to help prepare your case. However, among the most important things you can do is to make sure that you follow your conditions of bail. It will severely hurt you and your defense strategy if your bail is revoked and you have to await your trial while you are in jail. If you are having trouble meeting your conditions, let your criminal defense attorney know immediately.
