What kinds of cases do our Collin County criminal defense attorneys handle?

It is not easy to find the best Collin County criminal defense attorney for your case. It’s difficult to even figure out where to start.

You can start by looking at reviews and testimonials, but as everyone knows these days, so much of that can be fake, purchased, or misleading.

It’s important to consider experience, but remember that lots of experience can sometimes lead to stagnation, carelessness, and cynicism.

You should consider reputation, but remember that some of the best criminal defense attorneys challenge the status quo in court, and this can result in them not being very popular.

There’s no magic recipe for what makes the best attorney for your case, so we suggest you talk to the attorneys and get a feel for where their passion lies. Are they passionate about criminal defense or did they just start doing this because they got kicked out of the Collin County DA’s office?

We have never worked as prosecutors. We have dedicated our entire legal careers to perfecting the art of Texas criminal defense. Learn more about us >
