Fort Bend County Violent Crime Defense Law Firm

Our father-and-son legal team advises clients facing any felony or misdemeanor charges for crimes of violence, such as:

It is important to get dependable legal advice as soon as possible after your arrest or before you have been formally charged with a crime. Our attorneys can advise you about steps you can take to avoid making your situation worse, such as contacting the alleged victim or giving a statement to police. We also advise clients about the possible repercussions of a domestic violence conviction or the consequences of a weapons charge, which may range from the loss of gun rights to an impact on parental rights or future employment.

We can also work with the prosecution toward reduction or dismissal of the most severe charges before the authorities become committed to a particular view of the case.

A Former Police Officer And Prosecutor On Your Side

Larry McDougal formerly worked as a police officer, a sheriff's deputy and a prosecuting attorney. Those insights have helped him become a highly effective defense lawyer because he knows how law enforcement investigates and how the prosecution builds its case. This enables him to challenge different facets of the investigation and arrest. Are the victim and witnesses credible? Do they have a motive to falsely implicate you? What evidence ties you to the gun or the crime? Did authorities have the proper basis for search warrants?

If you are accused of assault or a violent crime, we make sure that you have an opportunity to tell your side of the story. We will make every effort to dismiss or downgrade the charges, through pretrial motions or plea negotiations. We are always prepared to go to trial to avoid prison and other adverse effects of a felony record.

No matter how serious the charges, we are confident we can make a difference in the outcome. For a free, confidential consultation, contact the Law Office of Larry P. McDougal to speak with our Richmond violent crimes defense lawyer.
