Start With an Initial Consultation
If you have been charged and you decided to contact our firm, an initial consultation will be conducted with one of our seasoned defense attorneys. During the consultation, tell us as much as you can about the charge and the circumstances surrounding it. We will also ask questions so that we understand as much as we can about the case and identify strengths and weaknesses about it and possible defenses. We will be able to tell you how the case can go and what your options are.
Call (956) 436-5700 or complete our contact form to request a consultation. If you choose to work with us, then our defense attorney will take an even deeper dive into your case.
Our Defense Lawyers Conduct Investigations
It takes more than a consultation to defend you successfully. We will do a thorough investigation to further strengthen your case or see if there is a possibility that you may be acquitted of the charges. Part of the investigation process may involve collecting evidence, speaking with the police to ensure that the procedures they followed were correct, speaking with witnesses (those with eyewitness accounts as well as experts who may be able to speak more to collected evidence), and more.
Our Defense Attorneys Analyze Your Evidence
If you are charged with a crime, do not hesitate to seek out a defense lawyer from Gonzalez Druker Law Firm, PLLC. The sooner you choose to work with an attorney, the more time we will have to analyze your evidence. Having the time to carefully study the facts and details thoroughly as well as time to anticipate what the plaintiff may argue or have as evidence will allow us to build an effective argument to defend you.
What Does a Defense Attorney Do During a Trial?
Aside from performing investigations, analyzing evidence, and keeping constant communication with you regarding developments in your case, defense lawyers can provide real insight into how the case is going and what the outcome may be.
Other things a defense attorney does:
- Assisting with the jury section process
- Being dynamic and trustworthy, being able to explain complex topics simply to a jury
- Examining and cross-examining witnesses
- Negotiating a plea bargain, or securing a favorable deal that results in a reduction of charges or punishment
Reading Books or Online Research Doesn’t Replace a Defense Attorney
Even if your case seems simple or you think you could represent yourself, think again. A court trial is more than knowing the laws that are in your favor. There is an art to making a convincing argument to a jury. At Gonzalez Druker Law Firm, PLLC our defense attorneys have nearly 30 years of collective experience and have the resources needed to help win your case. If you were arrested and accused of a crime in Texas, we can provide the fierce advocacy that you need.
