Defense for Texas Crimes
Dallas Criminal Lawyer Can Fight For You
Often times when clients hire us before charges are filed, we are able to help resolve those charges without indictment. Once a defendant has been indicted or otherwise charged with an offense, Texas law requires the prosecution to produce documentation such as the police offense report, witness statements, and/or any evidence that demonstrates that a defendant might be guilty of the charges he or she faces.
An experienced Dallas criminal defense lawyer should request the discovery of all evidence in order to evaluate the strength or weakness of a case. If you are facing criminal charges in Texas, it might be advisable to hire a top-notch investigator to interview witnesses and assist in the preparation of your defense.
Fighting for Your Rights & Exploring Your Options
At the law office of Peter Barrett in Dallas, our aggressive criminal defense lawyer always strives to get your case dismissed, your charges dropped, or your sentencing reduced when possible.
We make sure to explore all alternative options such as:
- A trial before a judge or a jury
- A reduction of the charge
- A conditional dismissal
- Deferred adjudication probation
- Mitigation of any punishment
In the event of a dismissal or deferred adjudication probation, it may be possible to either expunge the records relating to the case or petition the court for an order of non-disclosure, effectively sealing the records.
