A Proven Criminal Law Expert
Very few criminal defenders in Houston provide a concise, clear review of their criminal defense case results and be sure to believe that Jack is one of the best at it. When you review his website there is an option to review Jack’s case results by category, class, or altogether in one massive list. By virtue of providing results that any lawyer, or citizen in the know can verify, is what sets Jack apart from the other top lawyers in Houston.
We’ve Known Him for Almost 3 Years
When we first started working with Attorney Carroll, on a number of projects, we learned fast that Jack only cares about results and it shows in his work ethic, attention to detail, ferocity when it comes to completing tasks, and his perseverance when it comes to overcoming obstacles.
Another aspect of his practice, that we noticed, is that he doesn’t invest much in bringing in new clients to defend in the court of law, he mainly takes on new clients as result of referrals.
Being Charged with a Crime in Houston is Serious
Having to deal with the life changing event of being charged with a criminal offense in the State of Texas is no laughing matter. A person charged with a criminal offense, felony or misdemeanor, is looking at a future of having the appearance of a criminal arrest show up on their background during pre-employment/pre-promotional background checks, jail time, fines, possible job loss, suspended drivers license in the event of a drug arrest, a lowered perception in the community, and the wrath of the State of Texas.
Steps to Take if you Are Charged Criminally in Texas
Do not talk to police.
Any competent criminal defense lawyer worth their salt will tell you not to talk to, or volunteer information to, the police.
The reasons for not talking to police are numerous and include giving law enforcement evidence they can use against you in the court of law during trial, incriminating yourself, waiving your 5th amendment rights, possibly even waiving your fourth amendment rights, hurting your legal defense, causing more criminal charges to be filed against you, and more. It never fails to amaze criminal defense attorneys on how much damage loquacious clients can do to their own defense.
Bond Out of Jail
It’s almost impossible to put up a decent fight for your constitutional rights from inside of a jail cell and equally as difficult to find a good criminal justice lawyer from behind bars. It’s always good to bond out of jail as soon as a bond is set, then make strides to find competent legal representation to help you fight the charge.
Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney
Once you bond out of jail, it is highly imperative that you contact a well qualified, preferably an attorney who is board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in criminal law, attorney to work with you to develop a strong defense strategy worth executing during your trial.
If you end up hiring one of the best lawyers in Houston as it relates to fighting allegations of felony or misdemeanor charges, counsel may be able to get the Harris County prosecutor to drop the charge and dismiss the case. There have been numerous cases in which district attorneys will continue to reset a case over and over again simply because they know they will lose to the defense at trial.
People in the know will tell you, Jack B. Carroll, and a handful of other top Houston lawyers, are some of the only attorneys who have a record of forcing the hand of the prosecution during criminal cases.
When looking for top shelf representation be sure to ask around. Even with the attorneys you talk to, let them know you may not hire them and that you simply want the free consultation. If you like and trust them hire them, if not, be sure to ask them if they know of any other criminal justice lawyers they have enough respect for to refer you to. The result is that you will have a new option given to you from inside of the criminal defense community, of a bright lawyer you may be able to work with.
