Guiding you through life’s toughest moments.

Protecting Your Future And Defending Your Freedom

A criminal conviction can change your life. From prison sentences, immigration impacts and damage to your professional and personal representation, a criminal record can be devastating for your future. You need to take steps early on in your case to protect yourself.

At The Cantú Law Firm in Laredo, I am ready to represent you in the face of even the most serious criminal charges. From minor drug charges to serious trafficking crimes, you can rely on me to fight for your rights and freedom. As a former prosecutor, I have seen both sides of the criminal justice system. I know the tactics and approaches the state will use to try your case. Using this insider knowledge, I will work with you to develop a case strategy that fights for the best possible outcome.

Defending You Against A Wide Range Of Criminal Charges

Texas punishes criminal actions harshly, and even a seemingly minor crime can have lasting consequences on your entire life. For the most serious and violent crimes, you may face a lifetime in prison without parole.

I can defend you against a variety of criminal charges, including:

  • Drug offenses
  • Assault and domestic violence
  • Theft, forgery and embezzlement
  • Computer crimes
  • Sex crimes
  • Prostitution
  • Weapons offenses
  • Immigration infractions
  • Juvenile crimes

Facing the legal system can be overwhelming, especially if your future seems unclear. When you work with me at The Cantú Law Firm, I will be by your side from the initial investigation to representing you in court. From our first meeting, I will take the time to listen to your story and get to know you. I always collaborate with my clients on a legal strategy, ensuring that your best interests are at the forefront of your defense.

What To Do If You Are Under Investigation Or Have Been Stopped Or Arrested

If law enforcement stops or arrests you, or learns you are under investigation, you may feel overwhelmed and scared. While these scenarios are intimidating, there are steps you can take to protect yourself.

First, it is crucial that you do not give statements to the police or investigators before talking to an attorney. You have the right to remain silent, and waiting to discuss anything with law enforcement is often in your best interests. While you may want to discuss your case with a friend or family member, it is always a good idea to consult a lawyer first. From the minute you discover you are under investigation or arrest, you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. When you work with me, I will put your long-term best interests as the highest priority.
