A Texas Criminal Defense Firm That Takes Care Of You


Our Richmond, Texas, lawyers help people who are charged with crimes. We use our skills and experience to protect your rights, your interests and your future.

Criminal Defense is very much driven by the client's own choices:

  • Should I plead guilty to DWI or take my case to trial?
  • Should I fight juvenile charges or hope my child is "scared straight"?

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 may be hiring the right attorney.

Our father-and-son law firm, the Law Office of Larry P. McDougal, has served clients in Fort Bend County for more than 20 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.
