McAllen Criminal Defense Attorney
Hire a Trial Lawyer to Protect Your Rights
Immediately after you have learned that you are under investigation for a crime or have been arrested, contact Guerra & Farah, PLLC for a confidential consultation with a McAllen criminal defense attorney from our team. Remember, federal investigators and the police and are not on your side. Their job is to solve crimes and to assist the United States Attorney's Office and the Office of the Hidalgo County District Attorney in having people convicted. No matter how friendly they may seem, the investigators only want to talk to you in order to get you to say things that may further incriminate you. You cannot resolve the situation by simply being cooperative and telling your side of the story, since they may already believe that you are guilty and could use your statements as evidence against you. They can even legally lie to you during questioning in order to lead you into making a confession. Don't waive your Fifth Amendment right to not testify against yourself by agreeing to talk. Exercise your rights to remain silent and to hire an attorney to represent you.
Our team represents clients charged with all types of federal offenses at our McAllen and El Paso offices, and we handle all types of criminal charges at our Houston location. As soon as you contact our firm, we will be ready to meet with you in person to discuss the circumstances of your arrest, listen to your explanation of events, and to review your legal options for resolving the situation. If at all possible, seek our help while you are still under investigation and before you have been arrested, since by doing so you may be able to prevent the situation from going any further. Even if you have already been arrested and charged, it is still important to hire an attorney without any delay because the police are already working to build the case against you and you cannot afford to lose any time in preparing your defense.
Why Hire Guerra & Farah, PLLC
Our attorneys have nearly 30 years of legal experience, and we have proven our ability to get results in even the most challenging cases. In fact, we routinely take on difficult cases that other attorneys are afraid to go near. We are capable of representing clients in both state and federal court and handle a wide range of misdemeanor and felony charges. Whether you have been charged with a first-time DWI, a federal
drug crime, or a
domestic violence offense, or if you are facing prosecution for a serious
sex crime, a
white collar crime or even
murder, we are ready to take immediate action to investigate the case and fight to clear your name of the charges! We have a highly effective legal team, which includes one team member who has been selected for inclusion in the 2014 list of
Texas Super Lawyers®.
We approach every case we represent with the attitude that it will end up going all the way to trial. Many attorneys simply look for the quick and easy solution by trying to negotiate a plea bargain which is often little better than the disposition that the client would have received without hiring an attorney. On the contrary, our legal team invests considerable time and effort in preparing each case for trial by investigating evidence, interviewing witnesses, retaining the services of experts who can provide testimony and developing a sound strategy for defending our clients' rights.
This approach to preparation frequently yields outstanding results, such as an acquittal at trial, a dismissal of the charges without a trial, or reduction of charges. We know how much is at stake for your future and are willing to fight to defend your freedom and help you find your way out of the criminal justice system.
