There are a lot of lawyers practicing criminal defense in the Metroplex. Some are from Dallas; others are from Ft. Worth. But if you’ve been arrested in Collin County, you need a Collin County criminal defense attorney.
An attorney that practices law in Collin County every day will be in a better position to understand your story, your judge, and the attorney working to prosecute you. Every judge is different. And so is every prosecutor. What angers one, may mean nothing to another. Some judges favor probation while others insist on jail time. And the Collin County District Attorney’s office has its own policies and practices for dealing with different issues.
If you or somebody you care about are facing criminal charges here, you need to contact a Collin County criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. The sooner a competent, caring lawyer gets involved in your case, the better your odds of minimizing the impact of the charges against you.
One of the most important things your criminal defense lawyer can do is to conduct an independent investigation into the facts surrounding your charge. Often times, that means visiting the scene of the alleged crime as soon as possible after an arrest. An investigation may uncover new leads, witnesses, or physical evidence that was overlooked by the police. Further the “facts” in the police report aren’t always true to life. The sooner an attorney or investigator can start working, the more likely that an investigation will reveal information the government missed or ignored.
An experienced Collin County criminal defense attorney can help you keep yourself out of trouble and position you for the best outcome possible prior to trial. There are many things you can do to minimize the impact of a criminal charge. Often these are things that would benefit you in your personal life anyway. For example, your lawyer may suggest that you take classes, attend counseling, or seek treatment for drug or alcohol dependency. A Collin County criminal defense attorney knows which programs are local, affordable, and make an effective impact.
We Practice Law Differently
There are a lot of Collin County criminal defense attorneys. But not every defense lawyer in Collin County will be a good fit for you and your situation. At Vitz Law, we believe that every citizen accused of a crime comes to a courtroom at crossroads in life. And every person has a unique story to tell. You need an criminal defense attorney who will take the time to get to know you and your story.
It disturbs us to see citizens accused of crimes, without lawyers, being taken advantage of by a prosecutor. Some lawyers only see citizens-accused as a commodity. It pains us to see people being taken advantage of by a “businessman with a law license.” We wish that people knew the importance of speaking to a lawyer. It has been our experience that by the time an accused person speaks with a lawyer it is usually well after an arrest and too late in many cases. We wish that citizens had a better understanding of their rights before the process of being accused begins. Depending on the facts of a case, it may be necessary to preserve evidence early in the legal process. Therefore, we believe it is necessary to discuss the details of your case with a lawyer as soon as possible.
