Serious Charges Require Serious Lawyers
Tarrant County Criminal Law Attorneys
A criminal charge is a serious event in anyone's life. The potential of punishment involving the loss of liberty, and effects beyond the punishment sanctions in criminal court demands professional legal representation. Some of the collateral consequences involve damage to careers by creation of a criminal record. Background checks are now commonplace by employers, lending institutions, apartment rental applications and others. To protect your rights and freedom, you should have an attorney preparing your legal defense as early as possible.
The criminal defense lawyers at Ball & Hase, in Arlington, Texas, focus exclusively on the defense of those accused of violating criminal laws. We represent persons charged with both misdemeanor and felony offenses in state and federal courts.
People accused of a crime face the overwhelming resources of the government. Police officers and prosecutors have a wide range of resources at their disposal to collect evidence to be used in court against you. The lawyers in this firm work hard to protect your rights and identify effective defense strategies. Our vast experience serves to level the playing field. We represent people in the investigative stages, at trial, in plea negotiations, and on appeal in Texas state and federal courts. We also handle probation revocation and bond hearings.
If you face criminal charges, you should be represented by an experienced attorney who understands the complexities of the criminal justice system. We are criminal law specialists, and former prosecutors. Being former prosecutors provides us with the knowledge and perspective that our opponent, the government prosecutor, possesses. Both Wes Ball and Don Hase are board-certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. In Texas, only a lawyer who is board-certified can call himself or herself a specialist in a particular area of law.
