The principles of the American criminal justice system clearly outline that defendants are “innocent until proven guilty.” Unfortunately, for those accused of a crime, the reality is that prosecutors, law enforcement officers, and the media can often forget that every United States citizen has the right to a fair trial. From serious felonies to DWI convictions, the criminal justice system can take a huge toll on defendants, and if an experienced criminal defense attorney does not represent them, they can get swept up in complicated legal procedures and fall victim to being railroaded by the prosecution.
The experienced criminal defense attorneys at Drumheller, Hollingsworth & Monthy, LLP, represent those accused of a wide variety of misdemeanors and felonies in criminal defense matters in courts across Texas and around the country. Not only do we provide the legal might needed in these types of cases, but our firm also has extensive experience with crisis mitigation and handling media exposure.
