frequently asked questions

Do I need to hire an attorney if I plan on pleading guilty?

This does not matter in Texas. Texas is a no-fault divorce state, which means fault does not have to be at issue for the termination of the marriage.

What are my rights when interacting with law enforcement?

Too many people do not know their constitutional protections when dealing with law enforcement. Unfortunately, failure to properly handle a situation with police can mean waiving some of your rights or not asserting them.

Read about these critical constitutional rights to understand before interacting in any situation with law enforcement officers.

Do I have the right to be protected by a lawyer?

You have the right to legal representation by a lawyer if you have been accused of a crime – even if you can’t afford to hire one. In those situations, the court will appoint an attorney for you. Instead of answering police officer’s questions, ask for an attorney right away.
