You do not want to brave a fight against such serious allegations without a skilled criminal defense attorney fighting for you.
When you have so much riding on your case you need an attorney who is experienced and well trained at handling Texas aggravated assaults. Cody is a former prosecutor and well respected trial attorney. An experienced and skilled lawyer is necessary to ensure that your rights are protected and your best defense is put forth. Like any felony case, criminal defense can be broken down into three phases of representation: (1) pre-indictment; (2) pre-trial; and (3) trial. A skilled criminal defense attorney can work from the first day on the case to give you the best defense possible. Many times your chances of success in aggravated assault cases can be greatly increased by aggressive representation in the pre-indictment phase. This may include working to get the case indicted as a misdemeanor or even “no-billed” by the grand jury. If your case is indicted, the pre-trial phase begins and you need a criminal defense lawyer that will work to get your case dismissed and keep your record clean. If the government is not willing to dismiss your case then you need a criminal trial attorney that will standup and fight in the courtroom to get a “not guilty.” Cody will battle to win your case and will take a “no prisoners” approach to advocating for you.
