Trial work is a necessity when you are a criminal defense lawyer. If somebody doesn’t know trial two things happen; first of all if you’re innocent then you’ve got the problem of what goes on from there. Do you just plead it or are you forced to plead it? That’s not the way we work. What we want to do is to make sure that you’re very well represented. There are some lawyers that just plead out criminal cases. It’s because they don’t know anything about trial. Since I was a DA for Dallas County, one of the assistant district attorneys, I learned to try cases there. I had the very best training that you can get anywhere. And one of the things that people don’t understand is if you won’t try cases the District Attorney’s Office knows that, and they’re not going to give you the same deals as someone who does try cases. Down at the District Attorney’s Office reputation is everything, and you really need a lawyer with a good reputation. Because, if they don’t have that, you know, you’ve got issues.
