Driving While Intoxicated can range from a Class B misdemeanor up to the most serious of felonies. Our DWI defense attorneys include former DWI prosecutors and instructors at police academies. We have the knowledge and experience to defend your DWI case in court.


Our attorneys defend all types of theft cases, including burglary, robbery, shoplifting, and white-collar crimes. Theft offenses range from misdemeanors to felonies depending on the value of property involved. Shoplifting cases can also involve civil demands from retailers.


Domestic Violence is one of the most common criminal charges in Tarrant County.  Often a domestic violence case begins with a misunderstanding that spirals out of control.  Our assault defense attorneys work hard to see that domestic violence cases are dismissed or reduced.


Defending sexual allegations requires discretion and skill. We work alongside investigators and medical professionals to defend sexual assault cases.  Our attorneys also handle cases involving children, statutory rape, computer crimes, and registration violations.


From possession of marijuana to manufacture and delivery of methamphetamine, our criminal defense attorneys defend against all types of drug crimes cases. We seek to help our clients overcome addiction issues without a conviction or incarceration.


Our Keller criminal defense team handles white-collar crime and fraud cases, such as embezzlement and high-value theft. We employ forensic accountants to help as we prepare to defend white-collar crime cases in court.


Juvenile Justice is a peculiar practice area in Texas. While it is similar to the adult criminal justice system, there are separate rules and procedures. Our attorneys are experienced in handling juvenile matters and helping young people stay on the path to success.


Our Keller attorneys are often called upon to defend very serious violent felony offenses. We have tried cases from aggravated assault to murder. Our firm works closely with experienced police investigators to fully develop every case.


Arrest records and other criminal records can have a significant impact on a person’s life.  Our attorneys help people clear their records through expunction or non-disclosure so that their past mistakes do not limit their future potential.  Call us to see if you qualify.
