Laredo Criminal Defense Attorney
Altgelt Law Office, P.C.
Making the Government Meet the Burden of Proof
Facing criminal charges can be overwhelming. Do not make the mistake of pleading guilty or talking to the police without a lawyer. Your freedom, career and family may all be at stake. You can, however, fight the charges with our assistance.
Regardless of the charges, our job is to make the government meet the burden of proof in your case.
At Altgelt Law Office we represent people charged with state or federal crimes in Texas. Attorney George Altgelt has 15 years of experience. He began his career as a prosecutor in the district attorney’s office in Webb County and Zapata County. This provides him with singular insight into criminal cases. With his experience, he can exploit any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case against you. He knows how the opposition is likely to act and will be prepared to counter their tactics.
Sometimes, winning the criminal case is just the beginning. We can help when criminal defense intersects with employment law in matters concerning employees who are licensed Border Patrol Agents, police officers, teachers, nurses, government employees and other professionals. There may be administrative consequences and employment repercussions even if you win your criminal case. We work to preserve clients’ careers by representing them from arrest and through the administrative employment process.
