Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy | Denton County

Being part of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, Denton County is a highly populated area of North Texas that is prone to various types of crime.

All of this comes at the expense of the individual in question. With all the possible issues that could occur, knowing how to approach the situation correctly in order to refute the charges and move on with your life is vital.

If you have been charged with allegedly committing a criminal or DWI offense in Denton County, it is important to hire an experienced attorney who will make every effort to help you avoid the most serious penalties and repercussions.

Criminal Defense Practice Areas

Along with their focus on DWI offenses, the attorneys are also well-versed in many other areas of criminal defense. They have experience defending those dealing with family violence charges and juvenile offenses. For domestic violence issues in particular, the firm understands how politically charged this situation can become and will employ their extensive legal knowledge of domestic laws in Texas to aggressively defend you from the snap judgements and fabricated accusations that may occur.

Drug/narcotics charges are another main area of focus, along with marijuana offenses, such as possession and cultivation. This area, considering the draconian stance of texas legislatures and law enforcement, comes with extremely harsh penalties that are disproportionate to the alleged offense. Because of this, the legal team can be counted on to do everything in their power to get the charges reduced or dismissed. Additionally, they also work with those accused of violent crimes, property crimes and firearm/weapon charges.

In addition to representing those currently involved in the criminal process, they also work on cases that involve a convicted individual and violation of probation. This also extends to helping individuals with the process of record sealing/expunging criminal arrest histories if the client would like to keep other people or employers from seeing this information during a background check.

Client Testimonials

I can’t say enough great things about the attorneys at this law firm. Within a few months they had my case, which I thought I was going to lose, dismissed and put my life back on track. I would recommend their firm to anyone and everyone who is in need of legal help.

Leslie L. Denton County DWI

A few months before I moved out of Texas, I was arrested for DWI. The problem was I was building a new life in another state with greater opportunities. I needed to find an attorney to handle my special situation being an out of state client who also travels out of the country. My case was in Denton County, which I have heard is a very difficult county to deal with. Because of my job I was in need of special accommodations from the court so I would not lose my career. After several months of tough negotiations with the DA, Richard and Brian were able to finalize my case beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone who has run into some trouble anywhere they might get a DWI.
