Facing criminal charges in the state of Texas can be a frightening situation, but you do not have to face it alone. Consider hiring our Arlington criminal defense lawyer as early in the process as possible.
With an experienced legal team on your side, you will have a chance to craft a smart defense strategy. Being proactive in your defense is almost always the best plan of attack, rather than waiting to see if law enforcement and prosecutors will cut you a break.
You Should Take Any Criminal Charge Seriously
Some people choose to plead guilty as quickly as possible to what they believe is a minor criminal charge. They just want the situation to go away, so they can get back to their normal lives.
However, it is important for you to fully understand what kinds of penalties you may be facing with a guilty plea. You also need to know how this guilty plea could affect your life in the years ahead. You do not want to trade away a short-term benefit for long-term consequences.
How Our Arlington Criminal Defense Team Can Help with Your Case
You have the right to seek legal representation after an arrest or when facing criminal charges in Arlington, Texas. Our legal team specializes in criminal defense and can help you in a number of ways.
Explaining Your Options
Understand that pleading guilty to what you believe is a lesser charge now could still affect you in the future. You may have a tough time obtaining a job, you may see your credit score drop, or you may suffer stronger penalties in the future if you receive another criminal conviction down the road.
We will fully explain the penalties you may be facing with your criminal charge. For example, facing a misdemeanor is a far different situation than a felony due to the severity of the penalties, as outlined by the Texas Politics Project.
Always Working for You
Do not rely on police officers or prosecutors to fully explain your legal options. They simply want to obtain a conviction or a guilty plea. They do not work for you.
Instead, you can rely on advice from your Arlington criminal defense lawyer, who does work for you and will always have your best interests in mind. We understand the high level of trust that you are placing in us when you hire us to defend you, and we do not take this responsibility lightly.

Negotiations with Prosecutors
After gathering the facts, our initial strategy in a criminal case almost always involves meeting with prosecutors. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may be able to negotiate a reduction in the severity of the charges you are facing.
It is possible that prosecutors will be willing to reduce the charges in exchange for a guilty plea on your part. Sometimes this is the best strategy, especially when the facts of the case give us little chance of winning at trial.

Dismissal of Charges
In some instances, we may simply demand that prosecutors dismiss the charges against you. During our investigation of your case, we may discover that law enforcement committed a mistake that makes a conviction highly unlikely.
When this occurs, prosecutors may be willing to drop the case. This is a rare outcome, but it does occasionally happen.
Going to Trial
We may believe that our best option is to take your case to a trial. We take pride in explaining the facts of a case and showing why we believe that acquittal is the correct decision for a judge or jury to make.
Going to trial is always a riskier choice, though. While negotiating a plea deal results in a sure outcome, a trial could result in a finding of your guilt, leaving you potentially facing the most serious penalties. However, a trial may be the best option in certain circumstances.
