A team you can trust

"Being accused of a crime puts you in a vulnerable position. You can trust our team to respect you and protect you throughout the process. We know what you are experiencing and we will stay by your side from start to finish. We never give up, and neither should you.""


Talk to us before you talk to anyone else.

When police ask you to answer a few questions, you are probably inclined to cooperate. We’ve been raised to trust law enforcement to protect our interests. But in this situation, investigators will be looking for anything that can be used against you. If you answer a certain way and then later realize you remembered a detail wrong, you can be accused of lying. Any inconsistencies about even minor issues can be used as evidence to show that you have something to hide.

Don’t talk to the police without
talking to an attorney first.

Even “friendly” questioning can lead to a criminal charge. At Barbieri Law Firm, our experienced team of Texas Criminal Defense Trial Lawyers works to ensure that your rights are protected during any interactions with law enforcement. We help avoid dangerous inconsistencies or vague statements. We know the tricks that will be used against you, and how to keep you safe.
