Hire The Right Attorney
At The Law Office of Larry McDougal, our team is dedicated to helping those who have been charged with any kind of crime. We use our skills and extensive background to protect your rights, your interests and your future. Criminal defense is very much driven by a client’s own choices. The quality of the decisions you make will depend on the quality of the legal advice you get. So, the most important choice you make can be hiring the right attorney. We can help you answer tough questions like:
- Should I plead guilty to a DWI or take my case to trial?
- Should I fight juvenile charges or hope my child is “scared straight?”
Our father-and-son law firm has served Fort Bend County for more than 37 years. We work closely with you to make sure you understand your rights, your responsibilities, your risks and your opportunities. Whether you opt for a negotiated resolution or your day in court, it will be an informed decision backed by experienced representation.
