With the cities of Plano, McKinney, Frisco, Allen, Wylie, and Fairview encompassing the North Texas’ Collin County, law enforcement has to account for a large population and a relatively high crime rate. This high burden left of police and judges to prosecute large numbers will inevitably bring about mistakes, inaccuracies, rushed judgments, and cutting corners. All of these issues have the potential to have major effects on your criminal case.
Due to this, having a criminal defense attorney who has the legal knowledge necessary to make certain every avenue of defense is taken in order to get your charges reduced or dismissed is very important. Holding law-enforcement accountable while making sure you are treated fairly is paramount in finding a favorable outcome.
