In either case, you need clear, solid information and guidance from attorneys who know both Texas family law and criminal defense law, and who thoroughly understand the workings of area courts.

In your time of severe emotional stress, legal counsel you trust can provide the clarity you need to make confident choices and protect your future. Since 2001, our law firm has been helping clients protect their rights in tough family law challenges, as well as defend against criminal charges.

Zealous Criminal Defense Services

We are committed to defending your rights, privacy, reputation and freedom. As respected criminal defense attorneys, we know the seriousness of criminal matters and the long-term impact they can have on your life and the lives of your family. Using our experience, insight and knowledge of criminal law, we thoroughly research, prepare and, if needed, litigate each case to achieve the best possible results for you.

If you choose our firm to represent you, we will:

  • Passionately advocate on your behalf, developing a strategy for a defense that addresses your case and the charges levied against you.
  • Work diligently to investigate all the facts and procedures to obtain the most positive outcome possible for you.
  • Fight to protect your rights and unearth the truth, whether that's uncovering false allegations in a domestic violence case, examining law enforcement procedures in a DWI arrest, or working with prosecutors and the courts to minimize consequences in a drug possession charge.

We bring forth years of criminal defense experience to aggressively fight a range of misdemeanor and felony charges, whether you've been charged with domestic violence, DWI, drug charges, or the complexities of arrest for simultaneous multiple criminal charges. In the end, our primary goal is to obtain the most favorable results for you.

    I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Setzer. He went above and beyond all of my expectations when I discussed my situation. He is extremely understanding, knowledgable and well versed on the legal principles surrounding his specialty, and even able to offer advice on other legal matters. He treated me with the utmost respect and was fantastic in communicating the process and details of what was happening. I would recommend you strongly consider him to handle your legal needs.
