If you find yourself charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, choosing the best criminal defense lawyer to help you resolve your case is a top priority. By choosing TLG, you are choosing experienced attorneys who will aggressively represent you. The attorneys at Turnbull Legal Group always prepare by analyzing your case facts (including the offense report, supplements, available discovery, and your possible criminal history) and then summarize that information in a written Case Summary that is shared with you. By preparing this document, it allows our attorneys to identify possible issues and defensive strategies. Our attorneys have diverse backgrounds and experience, from Gideon’s Promise to former TDCJ attorneys, who will either prepare a Mitigation Letter to persuade the District Attorney of any mitigating factors in your case or create a Challenge Letter outlining the weakness in the prosecution’s case. These letters are an important negotiation tool that can potentially convince a prosecutor to either reduce the charge or think twice about pursuing a trial. Facing the full force of the government can be a stressful time, and we at TLG understand how unnerving that can be, and that is why we pride ourselves on being accessible to our clients. Our attorneys and staff are here to treat you with professionalism and compassion during this uncertain time.
After a person has been arrested and charges have been accepted by the District Attorney, it is time to act fast. The State has endless resources at their disposal to build their case against you. It is imperative that you retain an attorney who can begin to prepare your case and advocate for you. In some cases, an attorney can prepare a Grand Jury packet to present to the Grand Jury before you are even formally indicted, resulting in a No Bill (where the Grand Jury decides that there is not enough evidence to formally charge you). In other cases, especially in DWIs, delaying counsel can have costly consequences since there are deadlines that start from the moment of your arrest, such as administrative driver’s license suspension hearings.
One of the most fundamental rights embedded in the US Constitution is the Sixth Amendment, the right to counsel. The prosecution has every law enforcement agency at their disposal, from skilled investigators to detectives trained in interrogations, and rest assured the District Attorney is going to use these resources. Before speaking to the police, assert your right to counsel. While you have certain rights enumerated, the right to remain silent and the right not to incriminate yourself, there are many complexities in applying these rights and what you say can be used against you. It is important that you exercise your right to counsel by hiring a competent attorney that can stand by your side against the vast resources of the State and that can help you navigate through all the legal complexities in applying your right to due process. At Turnbull Legal Group, we fight to make the State prove its case.
This is one of the most common questions asked during case consultations. At Turnbull Legal Group, we offer a variety of fees and are also able to arrange a payment structure that works for you. Our fees are written out in the contract, and we always review the fees with you beforehand, in detail, ensuring that there are no unexpected surprises. Our fees are based on the complexity of the case and on the experience of our attorneys. Once you sign a retainer agreement, you’ll get a peace of mind knowing that your legal problems are in the hands of experienced professionals.
