Houston Criminal Defenders

Texas Criminal Defense Process

If you are facing criminal accusations, are under investigation, or have been arrested for a crime, you may be frightened and confused as to what you need to do to protect yourself. Because you typically have only one chance to defend yourself, the decisions you make about your defense will affect the rest of your life.

Remember that any criminal charges should be taken very seriously. We strongly encourage you to seek the help of a skilled and knowledgeable criminal lawyer as soon as possible. Avoid being appointed a public defender; carefully choose a criminal defense law firm or lawyer with whom you are comfortable.
