What to Do If You’re Arrested
It is important that you:
- Remain silent (even if you are innocent), and
- Contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer or DWI lawyer immediately.
Remember, as long as you are in police custody, anything you say and do can be used against you. Too frequently, off-hand comments and actions are taken out of context and presented as evidence of your guilt. Stay calm, be polite, and retain a skilled Southlake criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
Regardless of your guilt or innocence, you have rights. Do not negotiate a plea or appear before a judge without the help of a lawyer. A Southlake criminal defense attorney will help you navigate the criminal justice system and ensure that you understand your constitutional and legal protections.
Providing the Strongest Defense in Your Case
At the Law Office of Bryan P. Hoeller, we commit ourselves to protecting your rights and holding the government to its burden of proof. You simply cannot get a conviction unless the government (either the State of Texas or the Federal Government) can prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
We perform a detailed analysis of the evidence and legal issues in every case we handle. Depending on the facts of your case, we may be able to present the following defenses:
- The officer lacked reasonable suspicion or probable cause to stop you,
- The stop, search, or investigation violated the law,
- Certain evidence should be suppressed (and not presented to the judge or jury),
- The officer violated the procedures during your arrest and the investigation, and
- Search warrants did not meet legal requirements.
We also understand the importance of expert witnesses, independent investigators, and forensic labs — and use these resources when necessary. Our customized approach helps us to fully prepare your case and advocate on your behalf.
We pride ourselves in our personalized approach to your criminal defense. You are not a number or a statistic. We spend time with our clients to ensure that we understand their situation — and that they understand their legal rights and options. Our goal is to minimize the penalties and legal consequences of your criminal charges.
Deferred Prosecution and Diversion Programs
If this is your first criminal charge, Tarrant County offers several deferred prosecution and diversion programs. When completed, these programs prevent criminal charges from appearing on your record — which can make it easier to get a job, attend college, or obtain housing. If you qualify for a diversion program or deferred prosecution, our Southlake criminal defense attorney will aggressively pursue these options with the prosecutor.
We Handle Even the Toughest Criminal Defense Cases
We represent clients in a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony cases, including:
- Murder and violent crimes,
- Gun and weapons charges,
- White collar crimes (such as fraud, embezzlement, and money laundering),
- Drug possession and delivery,
- Theft, burglary, and robbery,
- Driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI), and
- Domestic violence and violation of a protection order.
Texans from all walks of life deserve compassionate and dedicated legal representation. If you have questions about pending criminal charges, contact us as soon as possible. We handle cases in both state and federal courts.
