San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers

We Fight for the Accused Throughout Bexar County, TX

Criminal investigations, arrests, and charges are frightening and frustrating. If you are facing state charges or even a federal case in the greater San Antonio area, it is vitally important that you seek out a criminal defense attorney immediately. 

While using a public defender or defending yourself are options, hiring a professional is the best way to protect your freedom and reduce penalties. Successfully navigating the criminal justice system demands knowledge, skills, and experience. 

In many instances, prosecutors use the system to seek maximum penalties to send a message to others as a deterrent. At Flanary Law Firm, PLLC, we can use our extensive knowledge to seek case dismissals, reduced charges, or not-guilty verdicts. Our attorneys are fearless and tenacious professionals committed to pursuing optimum results for those who entrust their freedom and future to us. 

Our team has 30+ years of combined experience defending Texans from criminal charges. From state misdemeanor to federal felony charges, we know how to handle even the most complex criminal offenses. Whether you are facing accusations or have already been arrested, we can help. We serve clients in San Antonio, Texas Hill Country, and Laredo.

Why Is Hiring a Criminal Defense Lawyer So Important? 

When criminally charged, all that stands between you and the penalties is an attorney. Although you are innocent until proven guilty, the legal system can be complex and challenging. 

Without a proven defense lawyer, you could be unfairly targeted or forced to rely on an overworked and understaffed public defender or represent yourself without the legal background needed. An attorney on our team can be your advocate and ally, guiding you through the legal system while protecting your rights.

Many innocent individuals face jail time or hefty fines without a professional defense. If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime, please get in touch with our team. We can fight for your rights and a fair trial while pursuing your best interests. 

Arrested or charged? Schedule a free initial consultation with a San Antonio criminal defense attorney at Flanary Law Firm, PLLC by phone at (210) 899-7566 or contact us online.

  • What’s The Difference Between A State Charge And A Federal Charge?
    A state criminal charge is prosecuted by the state in the state court system. Typically, state charges are lesser charges and often carry fewer penalties. Federal criminal charges are violations of federal law and are prosecuted by the U.S. attorney’s office. Federal offenses are often investigated by the FBI, DEA, or SEC, depending on the nature of the crime. Federal criminal charges tend to carry more severe penalties, including exorbitant fines and extended prison sentences. Federal cases also tend to take longer, especially if they go to trial, due to the nature of the charges and the many agencies working together with the prosecution.
  • How Long Do Criminal Cases Take?
    Many factors affect how long a criminal case could take. In most instances, a case will be resolved within about six months. However, the complexity of your case, as well as the witnesses and evidence involved, could make it take much longer. Generally, federal and felony charges take longer to resolve than state or misdemeanor cases. Similarly, cases that go to trial often take longer to resolve than cases that don’t, simply because a criminal trial can take multiple days or weeks. If you have questions about the timing of your criminal case, contact our law office today.
  • Will My Case Go To Court?
    While going to trial is always possible, very few cases actually make it to court. In some instances, our Texas defense attorneys can argue against the evidence in your case to get your charges dismissed altogether. If not, our team can negotiate with prosecutors to secure a plea deal that reduces or even removes the penalties against you. If these options are not possible or not in your best interest, then your case will likely go to court. In that scenario, our team will spend time building a defense strategy to present before a judge to get you the outcome you deserve.
