While on duty I was forced to defend myself with lethal force. I contacted Mr. Paul Saputo Jr. the next day and he was very friendly and resuring when I explained the events that took place. He said he would have his investigators out that day to go over the crime scene and he explained to me what to expect next and case scenarios. I felt after speaking with him I was in good hands with a capable attorney and confident I woild be represented well. He was always available when I needed to speak with him and always friendly and professional. I was cleared in this shooting and having Mr.Saputo Jr. there made this whole ordeal manigable.

Choosing The Right Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Make A Huge Difference In Your Case Result

Why would you hire a former prosecutor? Surprisingly, some people believe that former prosecutors provide some special advantage. But many of these attorneys seem to quickly push clients to a plea deal. Fewer and fewer attorneys make a practice of trying cases to a judge, and fewer still make a practice of trying cases to a jury.

That’s not who we are at Saputo Toufexis | Criminal Defense. As real trial lawyers, first and foremost, we make it our practice to bring the fight to the state. We have never worked for the government and never will. Learn more about our team, awards, and some of our victories.
