Learn More About Our FirmPeter Barrett attorneys

Dedicated Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been charged with a crime, choosing a criminal defense attorney is as important as any major decision you will make in your life. The law office of Peter Barrett has a reputation for an aggressive defense. We are known for handling high-stakes cases such as child sex crimes, federal drug cases, DWI, and vehicular manslaughter.

The cost of hiring a lawyer to fight for you is very small compared to the lifetime cost a criminal conviction can have on your reputation, employment, and freedom. For most people, the question is not whether they can afford to hire an attorney, but whether they can afford not to. Our Dallas criminal defense attorney has the trial experience you need behind your case. We have argued in all criminal courts in Texas, including state and federal courts, the Supreme Court of Texas, as well as appellate and district courts.
