More About Michael Lowe and Criminal Defense

Plan Your Criminal Defense Strategy

If you or a loved one are facing criminal investigation, arrest, trial, sentencing, or jail time in a Texas state or federal court, then you need an aggressive criminal defense plan.  It is never too early to plan a criminal defense.

Have a defense plan includes having a criminal lawyer that is experienced and dedicated to seeking justice for people who are charged with a crime.  Good criminal defense attorneys care about their clients and what happens to the client’s families if there is a conviction.

Whether you’ve been accused of driving drunk (DUI, DWI), a crime of violence or theft (assault, battery, theft, robbery, burglary, rape, sexual assault, murder) or any sort of drug crime (possession, intent to distribute, or intent to manufacture of prescription drugs or street drugs like heroin, crystal meth (methamphetamine), crack cocaine, ice, marijuana, or other controlled substances), a sex crime (rape, prostitution, public lewdness), or any other kind of felony or misdemeanor, you need your criminal defense lawyer at your side.

Why hire a criminal defense lawyer?

Criminal law is complex, and no one involved with the police or the district attorney’s office is going to be on your side, explaining all of your rights to you.  You cannot trust what you have seen on TV.  An experienced criminal defense attorney can foresee prosecution maneuvers and interrogation tricks, and a good criminal lawyer can build a criminal defense strategy with you — helping you decide what is best for your case.

A criminal defense attorney can also answer questions for you, such as:

  • Is there a warrant out for your arrest?
  • Is it an arrest warrant or a bench warrant?
  • Can you get out of jail on bond?
  • How do you get a bail bond?
  • How much does bond have to be?
  • Do you want a jury trial?
  • Should you negotiate a plea bargain?
  • What about your past criminal record?
  • What if you weren’t alone?
  • Does it matter if you are facing criminal charges in state or federal court?
  • How much does a criminal defense lawyer cost?
  • Will you lose your driver’s license (or child or car or gun)?
