The Importance of Working with a Local Defense Attorney

The Texas Penal Code applies in all Texas counties; however, the way these laws are interpreted varies between counties. Every judge has their own way of reading the law. Some are more open to certain types of defenses. Thus, if you face Hunt County criminal charges, it is imperative that you find a defense attorney who understands the local court system.

The Hunt County defense attorneys at Guest and Gray regularly handle cases against the same prosecutors, in front of the same judges, day after day. This gives our lawyers critical insight into how prosecutors try to prove their cases and how to effectively negotiate favorable outcomes for their clients. Additionally, our local defense attorneys can better cater defenses to appeal to the judge who will be hearing your case. The last thing you want is for your attorney to be seen as an “outsider” the moment they walk into the courtroom.
