WHEN SHOULD YOU HIRE A
DALLAS CRIMINAL LAWYER?

A criminal defense attorney plays an incredibly important role in the criminal justice system. They serve as a voice for the accused and provide legal representation to ensure that their client’s rights are protected throughout the duration of the trial. The attorney will investigate all angles of the case, review evidence, and negotiate with prosecutors on behalf of their client. Ultimately, it is up to them to build a strong defense strategy that can create doubt in a jury’s mind or have the charges dismissed altogether.

It is also essential for a Dallas criminal lawyer to provide support and guidance for those facing criminal charges, as well as remain updated about changes in laws related to their case. By utilizing their knowledge of legal precedents, court rulings, and statutes, attorneys can bring about the best possible outcome for their clients.

You should hire a criminal defense attorney soon as can possible. Rationally, you would want to have an attorney from the time of your arrest.

Suppose you are facing any criminal charge in Dallas County, Texas. In that case, this can be a challenging situation for you, whether you know you have done something wrong by violating the law or facing a wrongful accusation.

Even though this is not practical, you should try to speak to a Dallas defense attorney right after you are released from your arrest.

SECOND CHANCES DESERVE STRONG DEFENSE.

WHAT TYPES OF CASES DOES YOUR DALLAS CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER HANDLE?

In dallas county, texas, criminal charges and their penalties vary widely based on the nature of these crimes, your criminal history, and other aggravating and/or mitigating circumstances. Generally, there are two types of crimes:

MISDEMEANORS

Misdemeanors are criminal offenses that are punishable by a fine-only or up to one year in county jail.

FELONIES

felonies are more serious crimes punishable by at least two years in a state prison or jail.

If the law enforcement in Dallas arrests you for any reason, they must read your Miranda rights during the arrest, typically as they place handcuffs on you and force you to their police car. These Miranda rights include two necessary rights that you must exercise at this time: your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney.

Our criminal defense attorneys in Dallas can investigate your arrest, obtain evidence and assess evidence collected by the police, and develop an effective and personalized defense plan on your behalf.

Our goal is to help you avoid serious penalties or get your entire case dismissed.

HOW TO FIND A CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER

Hiring a defense attorney to represent you in a criminal case is a big deal. That’s why it’s so important that you find the right criminal defense lawyer in Dallas to represent you.

Not sure how to find a good criminal defense lawyer? Here are some tips on what to look for:

COURTROOM EXPERIENCE

While legal knowledge is important, actual trial experience is even more important. If the attorney you hire isn’t capable of arguing effectively in court or presenting evidence in the right manner, your case could suffer as a result. Both Attorney Hernandez and Attorney Baggett are nationally recognized, award-winning trial attorneys with over 40 years of combined experience fighting for their clients both in and out of the courtroom.

A HISTORY OF RESULTS

While it’s important that the attorney you hire has a track-record of getting cases dismissed or having their clients acquitted, when it comes to criminal charges, sometimes avoiding a conviction isn’t possible. However, that doesn’t mean your defense attorney can’t still fight to get favorable results for you. From having your sentence reduced to arranging for a plea bargain, a good criminal defense lawyer will fight till the end to ensure your rights and best interests are protected.

CLIENT EXPERTISE

While results are important, nothing speaks louder than a former client’s experience. You deserve an attorney who will put your needs first, listen to your input, and keep you up-to-date on what’s happening with your case. The best way to find out if a criminal defense attorney is right for you is by looking into how past clients have rated their experience with them.

My wife and were extremely pleased with the support we received from Attorney Medina and his staff. Attorney Medina tirelessly worked on our behalf throughout the entire immigration process. He and his staff were continually professional and thorough assisting us through the years of immigration paperwork. We highly recommend his services to those wishing to migrate to the United States. Although the purpose our time spent with Attorney Medina was a business relationship, we will forever consider him a friend.

I highly recommend the Law Office of Moises Medina. The staff is very diligent, communicative, and efficient. My concerns were always answered the same day or within 24 hours. Attorney Moises Medina is one of the most professional and dedicated attorneys I've ever met. Since our consultation, his help has always been above and beyond. He took our immigration case and explained the process with plenty of detail and gave us very accurate timelines. I had a couple of hiccups with my paperwork and Moises was able to find a solution for it. He is very attentive, kind, knowledgeable, and most of all very meticulous about his work. All my paperwork was checked numerous times to make sure everything was perfect. I have never felt stressed or concerned throughtout the process because the communication is always there. Do not settle for someone that is just trying to make money off of you. Moises Medina is someone that cares about your case and will actually communicate with you and make you feel at ease. Very thankful for the family member that referred me to this firm.

EVERYONE DESERVES A FAIR TRIAL.
