Kerrville Criminal Defense Attorney
Experienced Legal Representation in Texas
In many respects, a criminal case against a defendant is only as good as the evidence collected, the manner in which it was collected, whether investigators or officers followed proper procedure, and whether prosecution witnesses are credible. At The Law Office of Patrick O’Fiel, P.C. our criminal defense lawyers in Kerrville work with investigators, forensic experts, lab technicians, and other professionals as needed when defending our clients.
In criminal cases that don’t require the use of experts, our criminal attorneys expose departures from standard operating procedures, conflicting statements on the part of police officers and witnesses, and circumstantial evidence that must be questioned.

Who is the Defense Attorney?
If you were charged with a crime, the defense lawyer is the person who will defend you against those charges. It is the criminal defense attorney’s job to speak on your behalf (the accused), examine evidence, complete investigations, speak with witnesses, and more to defend your case. Their goal is to fight for your rights, to reduce your charges or punishment, or get you acquitted of charges completely.
What Does a Criminal Lawyer Do?
A criminal lawyer researches the facts of your case, investigates the case against you, and negotiates deals that are in your favor with the prosecutor. The deals may include reduced bail, reduced charges, and reduced sentences for you.
Criminal defense attorneys can explain complex topics in a way that is easy for the jury to understand and they can also question witnesses. An experienced attorney will know how to present your case in a compelling way that works in your favor.
Depending on the situation, even after the initial consultation, an experienced criminal attorney like Patrick O’Fiel may already have an understanding of what the best defense is for you and how the case will play out. If you were arrested in Texas, do not hesitate to contact and hire a defense lawyer in Kerrvile. Do not go at it alone -- there is too much at stake!
