Experienced Criminal Law Attorneys

Experience is perhaps the single most important factor to consider when choosing a criminal defense lawyer. You would not hire your family physician to perform heart surgery. Your freedom and livelihood are as important as your health, so you should not trust your legal defense to just any person with a law degree.

At Biggs & Greenslade, P.C., in Tyler, Texas, we have a wealth of experience at every stage in the process of a criminal case. Having a Marine Corps veteran, a former law enforcement officer and a former assistant criminal district attorney on our team, we understand how these cases are investigated and prepared from the initial stages of a police investigation through trial. We will help you through your case, and we will fight to get you the results you need.

Mr. Biggs has spent his entire adult life in public service. He continues to choose careers that allow him to defend the rights and safety of people in his community. Now at Biggs & Greenslade Law, we draw on that invaluable experience to defend citizens accused of a crime and those fighting legal battles.

Our attorneys defend clients against a wide range of criminal charges, including:

  • Intoxicated driving: Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) with alcohol or drugs is an important area of our criminal defense practice. Whether you are facing your first offense or a subsequent offense, we will fight to get you the best outcome possible.
  • Violent crimes: Our lawyers handle all types of violent crime cases, from simple assault to murder charges.
  • Drug crimes: We handle possession, possession with intent, possession in a school zone, felony possession, drug trafficking and other related drug crime charges.
  • Misdemeanors and felonies: Our attorneys can defend you in state or federal court against all ranges of misdemeanors and felonies.
  • Bail, Bonds and Forfeitures: We can help you negotiate your bail amount, deal with missed court dates and understand how the bail system works in Texas.

This list is just a sampling of the types of criminal cases we take on. If you are facing any type of criminal charge, call us. Do not risk your future.

FAQ

How much does a criminal defense attorney cost?

While we can’t provide a flat rate fee for hiring a criminal attorney because each case is quite different, at Biggs and Greenslade Law, we strive to make our services affordable. That’s why we provide a free first consultation as well as financing options for our clients. There is no risk in scheduling your free consultation where we will explore the details of your case and provide you with an estimate. So contact us today.

Is it worth hiring a defense lawyer if I know I’m guilty?

Yes! Even if you are clearly guilty, a competent attorney with scrupulous attention to detail will often find problems with the case that can result in significantly reduced sentencing or even complete dismissal of all charges.

Can I defend myself?

Some people choose to defend themselves, usually either to save money or because they are confident they are innocent. In either case, we strongly recommend seeking legal counsel.

Even if you know that you are innocent, if you do not have an expert’s knowledge of the Texas Law or know who to talk to about your case, you could wind up convicted of a crime you did not commit. At Biggs and Greenslade, we are familiar with both the law as well as the public officials dealing with your case, which gives us the advantage you need to obtain a favorable outcome for your case.

Additionally, we understand the financial burden that often comes with hiring an attorney and are committed to making our services as affordable as possible. That’s why we offer a free legal consultation where we will discuss the details of your case and help you understand your options. We also offer financing options to help you pay your legal fees over time.

Should I tell my attorney if I’m guilty?

Attorney-client privilege is an absolute right of confidentiality that encourages open communication between you and your lawyer. This privilege is extended not only to your attorney, but also staff members.

Being forthright with your attorney is essential to help build a solid defense on your behalf. The more we know, the better equipped we will be to defend you. Even the smallest detail you may consider to be insignificant could drastically change the outcome of your case.

Why is it better to hire a former prosecutor?

Experience is the single most important factor that can affect the outcome of any legal case. Until an attorney has tried many cases in court, the uncertainty of trial can be intimidating. Moreover, having the insight to anticipate a probable outcome is priceless when deciding how to proceed and the risks involved during litigation. The best way to win a fight is to know your opponent. An experienced trial prosecutor with a background investigating criminal cases is a recipe for success in a defense attorney. Mr. Biggs is a Marine Corps veteran. He has spent over a decade in law enforcement and has tried over 100 criminal cases to a jury. Our entire firm is eager for the opportunity to fight for you and your family.
