Lloyd Gastwirth

Extremely experienced with the District and County Courts in Dallas, Denton and Collin counties.

In my many years of practicing criminal defense law in North Texas, I have appeared on behalf of clients in Dallas County as well as numerous counties adjacent to Dallas County. In particular, I am familiar with and comfortable practicing criminal defense in the District Courts and County Courts in Denton and Collin counties. Although each county differs somewhat in terms of practice customs and procedures, I am easily able to maneuver in the company of court personnel and members of the office of the District Attorney on behalf of my clients. If someone has a criminal case pending in Collin or Denton county or is seeking an expunction or non-disclosure of a criminal record, I am sure that I can help significantly.

Don’t speak to a receptionist; talk directly to the actual lawyer who will represent you when you call!

WHAT PEOPLE NEED. In the thirty plus years handling criminal defense in North Texas and having spoken to over a thousand people, I know how scary the criminal justice system can be. As your criminal defense attorney is the only person in the system on your side and your side alone, it is of utmost importance for you to hire someone who cares about your and your case; someone who knows the system thoroughly and has the patience and ability to answer all of your very important questions as a person arrested for committing a crime. Contact me and give me the opportunity to help. you.

Being arrested is a serious problem. Years ago, before the Internet, criminal records were all on paper and contained within the walls of the courthouse. Information was not easily retrievable except for people who had access and clearance to oversee its retention. All that is different now and almost all information can be accessed in the community. You must have a lawyer who can navigate the criminal justice system to reduce and possibly eliminate your chances of having a permanent criminal record.

Dallas Criminal Lawyer Mr. Gastwirth, offers free phone consultations, answers the phone and returns calls promptly. Mr. Gastwirth is available on short notice! Affordable, responsive, aggressive criminal defense lawyer serving Dallas, Plano and Frisco TX.

If you or someone you know is arrested in on criminal charges in Dallas, Plano or Frisco, think of it as a life threat similar to a medical emergency. You must act, and you must act fast to avoid long term damage.

The first thing you should do is hire a lawyer. Why? Because a reputable lawyer will advise you from the start what to say and how to act before irreparable harm is done to you, your life and your freedom.

Lloyd S. Gastwirth is that reputable Dallas, Plano and Frisco criminal defense attorney. He has been practicing law for more than 40 years, initially for the airlines and other corporations. However, he decided more than 20 years ago that assisting individuals was more rewarding than representing conglomerates, especially when it comes to assuring they receive a fair trial.

“In criminal law, people’s liberty and freedom are at stake. People charged with criminal offenses are particularly vulnerable to the system and need a capable advocate to ensure that their rights are protected.”
Lloyd S. Gastwirth

Mr. Gastwirth works with his clients to give them a clear picture of what is ahead. Oftentimes people are given false and/or misleading information by well-intentioned others, and he tries to explain to them in a language they understand what their options are so that they have realistic expectations. He also works and communicates well with judges, prosecutors and probation officers.

Whether someone has been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, having an attorney at the beginning, just days after the arrest, can be extremely important. The longer hiring counsel is postponed, the greater the problem can become.

For instance, a competent lawyer will advise you to refrain from answering any questions until your lawyer is present. Also, you should never sign anything, such as an inducement, without consulting with your attorney first. If you feel you are being coerced or threatened by police after your arrest, you should inform your lawyer of this.

This is just some of the advice Lloyd has to offer as he helps you minimize any damage and maximize your chances at success.
