If you have been arrested for a crime and are now facing criminal charges, you are likely feeling scared and overwhelmed. While the law dictates that a person is innocent until they are proven guilty, the reality is that people often lump the defendant into the “guilty” category before they have had a chance to defend themselves.
With over 30 years of experience as both a former prosecutor and state district judge, Randall Isenberg strongly believes that every person has the right to a strong defense, and they are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
If you have been accused of a criminal offense—whether it is a traffic offense like a DWI or a felony—we are here to help. We take pride in the work we have done on criminal cases and in our level of honesty and professionalism.

Drug arrests–including offenses such as possession–make up the majority of the arrests in Texas.
The DPS estimates the value of stolen property in Texas at $1,945,544,611, which included almost 70,000 motor vehicle thefts.
Aggravated assault refers to the attempt to cause bodily harm to another person. Factors such as the use of a weapon, the intent of the perpetrator, the status of the victim, and the degree of the injury can all elevate a charge of assault to aggravated assault. Over 118,000 people were arrested for an assault in Texas, according to the report, with over 70,000 aggravated assaults occurring.
Burglary is categorized as breaking into something illegally, whether it is a house, car, or building. Over 100,000 people were arrested in 2016 in Texas on burglary charges.
Robbery refers to the crime of taking or attempting to take something by force or threat of force. Because it involves direct contact with a victim, it is considered a violent crime.
These are just a few of the possible crimes that are committed each day across the state of Texas. If you have been accused of one of these crimes or any other criminal offenses, do not delay.
