What rights do I have if I am arrested in Dallas?

Every individual has rights that trigger upon being arrested, as well as other rights that trigger during a criminal trial, and even afterwards. One of those rights is the presumption of innocence.

Every accused individual in the United States, including Texas, is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. The government has the burden of proving every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. The fact that a person has been arrested or charged with a crime gives no inference of guilt at his or her trial. The “reasonable doubt” is the highest standard in the legal system and it is intentionally designed this way since an individual’s liberty is at stake. It requires the jury to consider all the evidence (or lack thereof) carefully and impartially. Reasonable doubt exists when a fact finder cannot say with moral certainty that an individual is guilty.

If you have been arrested or charged with a crime in Dallas, you should strongly consider hiring a Dallas criminal defense lawyer as early as possible.

Do I need an attorney even if I didn’t do anything wrong?

It depends. Sometimes cases are dismissed if there is not enough evidence of a crime being committed. However, false accusations or ambiguous evidence can lead to charges and a trial even if you know that you didn’t commit any crimes. Because it is hard to know which of these best describes your situation, your best bet is to seek the advice of a Dallas criminal defense attorney as soon as you are arrested or find out you have been accused of a crime.

Criminal law is an area of law that encompasses a range of cases including but not limited to: sex crimes, theft crimes, white-collar crimes, violent crimes, drug crimes, juvenile crimes, DWI/DUIs and federal crimes. Some Dallas criminal defense attorneys focus on one specific type of offense (i.e., drug crimes), while others focus on a variety of criminal defense matters.

A criminal conviction can adversely impact every aspect of your life. Defending against criminal charges in Dallas can be challenging, and having a skilled criminal defense attorney on your side can make all the difference in your case.

Arrested or facing criminal charges?

Criminal law addresses the government's prosecution of individuals who have been accused of committing a crime. Such laws may be federal, state, or local. The prosecution represents the people of a particular jurisdiction, and acts on behalf of the government by bringing a case against an accused. Under the U.S. Constitution, a person accused of a crime may have the right to a criminal defense attorney during interrogations and certain other times before and during a trial.

Whether you are under police investigation, have been arrested, or are facing charges, having an advocate familiar with the criminal justice system.

Most jurisdictions classify crimes as felonies or misdemeanors, with felonies being the more serious offenses with the possibility of more severe sentences. Some criminal lawyers focus on a specific area of criminal defense law, such as white-collar crime, drug offenses, theft crimes, or violent crimes. You should consult with a criminal defense lawyer early on in the process to preserve options, such as diversion programs or plea bargains.

When hiring a criminal defense attorney, you should evaluate the experience and fee structure of the attorney. Some offer a free consultation to discuss your case.


Accomplice liability: If a person aids, assists, or encourages another in the commission of a crime, they are criminally liable as an accomplice to the crime.

Self-defense: The claim that an act otherwise criminal was legally justifiable because it was necessary to protect a person or property from the threat or action of another.
