Austin Criminal Attorney

A criminal defense attorney is sometimes referred to as a criminal lawyer, and they defend individuals and organizations which have been charged with a crime. These attorneys can handle everything from DUI/DWI cases to situations involving aggravated battery to drug crimes, theft, embezzlement, and so on.

If you have been arrested, it is your right to say that you would like to speak with an attorney before you are questioned by law enforcement officials.

It is your right to remain silent. Our legal team can accompany you during any questioning, and we will be able to help you with providing accurate and non-incriminating answers to their questions.

This will help to not hurt your case. It is important to understand that anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law, so it is important to have a professional and knowledgeable legal team on your side during this difficult time. We will also be sure that you are being treated fairly, and that your legal rights are being protected.
