Dallas Criminal Defense Attorney

Federal and State Court Criminal Defense Attorney In Dallas

Michael Lowe is a Board Certified Dallas Criminal Attorney Recognized by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization

Michael Lowe is committed to helping people educate themselves on the criminal courts process.  Mr. Lowe has extensive free legal information available throughout this website.  You won’t find this information anywhere else.

Sex Crime Allegations in Texas

For example, if you are investigated or charged with a Sexual Assault, Aggravated Sexual Assault, Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child, Indecency With a Child, Mr. Lowe’s article The Top 10 Mistake in Sexual Assault and Indecency With a Child article is MUST READ for anyone in your situation.  You will get tips that WILL benefit you from this article.

If you are already a Register Sex Offender and you want to Deregister as a Sex Offender, you need to know your rights.  Mr. Lowe’s article Texas Sex Offender Deregistration is an unprecedented legal manual on what makes you eligible to deregister and how it can be done.

In Mr. Lowe’s experience, most criminal defense lawyers are not even aware that a registered sex offender can be deregistered.  In fact, its “common knowledge” among criminal defense lawyers that no Judge can deregister a sex offender and that the statute is merely administrative so that they have no control over it.

This is one of the biggest myths among criminal lawyers.  You need to educate yourself first and then wisely choose your lawyer.

Drug Crimes: Manufacture, Distribution, Possession

What if you are charged with Manufacture, Deliver or Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance?  You NEED to read Mr. Lowe’s Top 10 Things to Know about Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance before you talk to any lawyer.  This information might prevent you from losing years of your life in a State Penitentiary; another War on Drugs Victim.

Traffic Stops

Of course, you need an excellent lawyer as well for this type of case and Mr. Lowe will help you no matter difficult you think your situation might be.  Mr. Lowe put together a detailed guide to individuals stopped by police while travelling through Texas on the highway.


Listen as Michael Lowe explains how to protect yourself in a traffic stop in his YouTube video, “How to Avoid Trouble When Pulled Over by State Troopers.”

Federal Drug Charges

If you or your loved one’s drug case is a federal case, everything is different.  You need an experienced Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer with a plan.

Mr. Lowe’s article The Top 10 Mistakes in Federal Conspiracy Cases and How to Avoid them is a first time look under the hood of how Federal cases are handled.  You can learn from the mistakes Mr. Lowe has seen others make for many years and use that knowledge to give you the best chance to break free from the Federal Government as soon as possible.

Synthetic Marijuana and other Synthetic drugs are getting a lot of attention from the Federal Government.  This is a complex area of law because the drugs the Government seeks to penalize are NOT to be found on any of the controlled substance schedules.  Therefore, the Government MUST rely on the so called “Analogue Statue.”

If you are being investigated for this type of crime, you NEED a lawyer that has done this before.  Mr. Lowe has much experience defending synthetic drug cases.  In fact, Mr. Lowe has written extensively on this topic to help people know their rights.

Mr. Lowe’s article Synthetic Drug Busts: Federal Arrests For Fake Pot and Designer Drugs That Are Legal Under State Law, lays out the Federal Government’s game plan for prosecuting this types of cases.  Mr. Lowe knows this because he has defended many of these cases and know how the Feds will approach them.

The Feds like to cast a wide net in their Indictments.  Many times, you will see a variety of charges to include monetary crimes such as Money Laundering, Structured Cash Deposit, Tax Evasion, and other financial crimes.  Mr. Lowe has extensive experience defending Federal financial crimes such as these both related to and not related to other drug crimes.

Through Mr. Lowe’s experience, he has learned that the Federal Government (FBI, DEA, IRS and Postal Inspector) are focusing more efforts into Structured Cash Deposits also known as “Smurfing” or “Structuring.”  This is one of the most confusing areas of Federal Criminal Law.

Mr. Lowe has written extensively on this topic so as to untangle the mess and help people investigated for these crimes get a better idea of how they can defend themselves.  If you or a loved one is investigated for this type of case, you owe it to yourself to do read Mr. Lowe’s article Structured Case Deposits:  What Do I Do When the IRS CID Agent Comes?

Family Violence or Domestic Violence Charges in Texas

Assault Family Violence cases cause more confusion and uncertainty than any other case.  The reason for the confusion is caused by the State of Texas.  Both the police departments that investigate these cases and the District Attorneys that file them treat the so called “victim” as the person “in charge” of the case when they want to prosecute.

But when they don’t want to prosecute and want to file an affidavit of non-prosecution:  Let the Games Begin!

Mr. Lowe has extensive successes defending these cases.  Mr. Lowe used to be a Family Violence Chief Prosecutor and has tried many dozens Assault Family Violence cases.  Mr. Lowe has also written extensively on this topic.  If you or a loved one is investigated, charged or arrested for an Assault Family Violence case, Aggravated Assault, Impeding Airflow of a Family Member (“Choking case”), 3rd Degree Enhanced Assault Family Violence, you need to learn the TRUTH about the REAL legal process.

Mr. Lowe’s article Top Ten Mistakes Defending Texas Family Violence Cases is a compilation of the most important errors Mr. Lowe has seen other lawyers commit over the last two decades.  This is a MUST READ before you hire anyone.

Protective Orders in Family Violence Cases

Your lawyer should have a working knowledge on all of these topics before you hire him/her.  But there is more to know and things get much more complex.  If you want an Emergency Protective Order removed or modified, what should you do?  How should you handle a Permanent Protective Order hearing? hint: Don’t Blow it off!  Can the State of Texas still win their case even if the so called “victim” refuses to show up to court and doesn’t want to prosecute?

These questions are finally and carefully answered in Mr. Lowe’s Family Violence and Assault Offenses:  Legal Procedure Guide.  Mr. Lowe’s Family Violence guide is not meant to answer all questions about your case so you should call a Mr. Lowe to get a consultation before moving forward.
