Dallas Criminal Defense Attorney

If you are facing a criminal accusation, you may wonder if you are truly presumed to be innocent. It’s not uncommon to hear stories of police or detectives who are more interested in filing a case than they are in finding the truth. If you’re arrested, you’re probably wondering how the presumption of innocence actually works. After all, you’ve just been placed on bond conditions that affect where you travel, where you stay, and may even impact your employment. You’re realizing that you cannot fight the system alone, and you need an experienced criminal defense attorney in your corner.
