Defending The Freedom Of Folks In Cameron County And Protecting Their Futures With Criminal Defense
Being accused of a crime may be devastating. You must find a good lawyer:
- If the police come calling
- After an arrest or after being charged with a crime
- In cases where conspiracy is or may be alleged and someone else with whom you were allegedly involved is already in trouble
Whatever has happened so far and whatever communications you have had with law enforcement agents, I urge you to contact me, lawyer Ed Stapleton, if you know or suspect that you are under accusations.
My Criminal Defense Law Practice Is About People’s Lives
In more than 40 years of criminal defense practice in Texas, I have seen the power of the criminal justice system come down on many good, ordinary people. I have also seen people get trapped in lives of crime. My job is to relieve human suffering. I am ready to evaluate your case if you are charged with a crime such as:
- Murder or assault
- A sex crime
- A drug crime
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Theft or Fraud
Criminal Defense Is For Everyone Who Needs It
You may have been in trouble with the law before, or this may be your first time. You may believe that you are completely innocent of the charges, or you may feel guilty about something that you have done. No matter how you feel about the situation, you need experienced defense to help you take back your life. Whoever you are, a criminal matter is serious and worth all your determination to defend yourself.
“The law, in its majestic equality, forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal their bread.” – Anatole France
In other words, anyone is at risk of being caught up in a criminal matter. No one is above the law. However, anyone can fight back and work to reclaim a better future after a criminal arrest.
- In addition to criminal defense, I also handle appeal of criminal convictions and petitions for parole.
