Arrested For a Crime in Houston?

Experienced Representation from a Former Prosecutor

The first thing that you must remember is that the police are doing their job, and they are not your friend. The police are looking for the evidence needed to convict you of a crime. The second thing you should know, it is legal for the police to lie to you during the course of their investigation; and the last thing you must understand is that the police will use anything that you say against you when it comes to prosecuting you for a crime, PLEASE use your right to REMAIN SILENT.

As a former prosecutor, I know how the other side thinks. I know police tactics, and what to reasonably expect from prosecutors throughout the process. This allows me to be much more proactive as a criminal defense attorney in preparing the best possible defense in your case. I have extensive experience defending criminal cases. I know the law, and I know the Courts. I also know how much room I have to negotiate a plea, and I know when to go to trial. My only goal is to win your case. If you have been arrested in Houston, Texas, then you need a good criminal defense lawyer who cares as much about the best possible outcome to your case as you do, and one who will fight to protect your rights.
