Criminal Defense Attorneys in Tarrant County

When the government brings a criminal charge, the prosecutor has tremendous training and resources that can be used to prosecute the case. To fight the case, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney devoted to protecting your rights and mounting an aggressive defense.

After a criminal accusation, it is important to hire an attorney as soon as possible so that all options for fighting the charges are still available.

The attorneys at Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy represent clients at all stages of the case including the initial investigation before an arrest is made, the first appearance in court after the arrest, during pre-trial status conferences, during evidentiary motion hearings, and at trial. 

The best result is getting the criminal charges dropped by the prosecutor or dismissed by the trial judge. Our attorneys understand the importance of filing pre-trial motions to exclude prejudicial evidence, suppress items illegally seized, or dismiss charges not supported by sufficient evidence.

We can help you assert your right to remain silent and to have experienced counsel at every stage of the case. Call today to find out how we can put our experience to work for you.
