The Texas criminal defense process can be difficult and confusing, especially for someone unfamiliar with the law. When accused of a crime, the process could take a few weeks or even several years depending on the type of crime you are accused of, the amount of evidence, and local laws.

Some criminal lawyers will tell you whatever you want to hear just to get your case. At our office you can count on us to give you an honest evaluation of your current situation and let you know what your options are.

When Should You Call a Defense Attorney? NOW-Don't Delay!

Call right away if you have been charged with a crime. We can help from the earliest stages of a criminal case to the end. Being arrested or receiving a misdemeanor summons is the beginning of a very difficult journey for the accused.

Don’t talk to police or prosecutors without an attorney present. At Darrow Law, you can be assured of being believed, being treated with dignity, and being presumed innocent. When we get involved early on, there is a great deal we can do to avoid charges being filed, negotiate for reduced charges, or work out an alternative to jail time that may allow charges to be dropped later, once alternative intervention is completed.

Choosing the right attorney is one of the most important decisions you can make. Paul Darrow has the experience to prepare and aggressively fight your case, as well as the knowledge, skills, and relationships to successfully negotiate a favorable disposition.
