Waco Criminal Defense Lawyers
Put Decades of Combined Experience on Your Side
Texas criminal charges require the aggressive assertion of a defense by an attorney experienced in criminal law. No matter the charges you face, it is important to retain a criminal defense attorney who will help you navigate the complex judicial system and provide you with a clear understanding of the criminal charges you face.
What is a Defense Attorney?
A defense attorney is a legal professional who works to provide effective representation to organizations or individuals who have been charged with committing a crime. Their primary responsibility is to defend their client's legal rights and protect them from being wrongly convicted or sentenced. Their objectives involve investigating the facts of the case, reviewing and evaluating the evidence, interviewing possible witnesses, negotiating plea deals, and presenting arguments in court. Criminal defense attorneys play a vital role in ensuring that those who are facing accusations of crimes are treated fairly and have an opportunity to defend themselves against the charges they are facing.
When defending criminal charges, it is necessary to obtain legal representation quickly. The more time we have to formulate a defense, the better it generally is for your criminal case. At Hutson & Harris, we defend all types of criminal charges.
If you are being investigated for a crime, we can provide representation during police questioning to ensure your legal rights are protected. If you have already been arrested, we can step in to conduct our own investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding your arrest and the alleged charges.
Our job is to uncover any improper police procedure as well as other weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case that can be attacked. Throughout all phases of the legal process, we will work tenaciously in using our experience and skills to help you obtain the best possible result.
