A Criminal Defense Lawyer Who Will Work Closely With You

When you face criminal charges, it is important to work with a lawyer who is honest with you — someone who will tell you the truth about the charges you face, the potential consequences and your options.

At Waller Law, most of the cases we handle are criminal law cases. We know the law, so we know what you face and can fight for you. We provide honest and effective representation to our clients. We keep you up to date on your case. From the moment you retain us until matters are resolved, we will work closely with you to achieve the best possible results.

Our founding attorney, Harold Christopher "Chris" Waller, was named the 2013 Corpus Christi Criminal Bar Association Lawyer of the Year. He has defended many people facing criminal charges in Texas state and federal courts.

Negotiating A Plea Deal Vs. Going To Trial

When it comes to an effective criminal defense, lawyers must be willing to fight for clients' best interests. But they also need to know how to pick and choose their battles. Experienced attorneys know when it's a good idea to proceed to trial and when negotiating a plea deal is the best option.

At our firm, we use extensive experience to prepare criminal cases for trial. We examine police reports and other evidence against you, determining the strength of the prosecution's case. When evidence was collected illegally or otherwise violates the rules of criminal procedure, we keep it from being used against you in court.

When the government's case isn't strong, going to trial may be your best option. When the evidence against you is extensive and the potential consequences are large, it may be best to negotiate a plea. Each case is different, however, and it's best to talk with us about your case before making any big decisions.
