When you have been charged with a crime, the stakes are high. If convicted, you may be required to spend time in jail or surrender your property. A criminal conviction can affect the rest of your life.
To protect your freedom and financial interests, it is important to rely on the advice of a lawyer. If you haven't established an ongoing relationship with a criminal defense attorney, this means putting a lot of faith in someone you may have just met.
At the Dallas law offices of D. Mark Elliston, Attorney at Law, we honor and respect this trust. As your legal representatives, we will vigorously protect your freedom and financial interests as if our own were at stake. We honor our commitment backed by extensive legal experience, offering our clients the knowledgeable representation they need to build a defense against all of their criminal charges.
