Well-Respected Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving Arlington & the Mid-Cities
At Goza & Carreras, Attorneys at Law, PC, our job is to go beyond the "fair" outcome. "Fair" just isn't good enough for us. When it comes to protecting our clients' rights and future, we always fight for the best outcome.
Unique Experiences Combine Into One Formidable Criminal Defense Team
Our criminal defense attorneys apply more than 35 years of joint criminal law experience to each case we handle:
- Former prosecutorial experience
- Former DNA analysis/forensic science experience
- Decades of combined criminal defense experience
This depth and breadth of experience add up to a team that is capable of reviewing any case from multiple angles. This helps us identify the right defense tactics and legal arguments to pursue in any given criminal case, ranging from theft charges to drug offenses, assault to violent crimes. Together, our
lawyers work out a strategy to identify each client's best options.
Why Choose a Board-Certified Criminal Defense Attorney?
Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguishing achievement.
Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means that Kara Carreras has substantial, relevant experience in Criminal Defense. She has demonstrated, and tested, special competence in Criminal Law.
There are more than 100,000 attorneys licensed to practice in Texas. Only 7,400 are Board Certified. There are over 700 Criminal Defense Attorneys and only 78 of them are Board Certified in the Fort Worth. Doesn't it make sense that you use the best and most qualified attorney to represent you!
Board Certified Criminal Lawyers earn the right to publicly represent themselves as a specialist in criminal law matters. In fact, they are the only criminal law attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to do so. This designation sets them apart as being an attorney with the highest, public commitment to excellence.
The process is voluntary and can only take place after an attorney has been in practice for five years, with a minimum of three years' experience in criminal law.
Moreover, Board Certification is not a one-time event. It requires an ongoing involvement in the specialty area which is periodically substantiated with references from peers in that field. It also requires annual professional refreshment through Texas Board of Legal Specialization approved, continuing legal education course work to stay abreast of current trends in law.
Personal Connections Lead Us Every Day
Our criminal trial lawyers bring a vast amount of experiences to the table—experiences most often found at big firms in Dallas or Fort Worth. But we are small enough to remain nimble and build true connections with our clients. We listen, support and guide our clients through what is often the most challenging time in their lives.
Well Known for Aggressive Advocacy
We've made a name for ourselves with other legal professionals in the area. We are known for trying cases; everyone understands that we refuse to back down in the face of a challenge. Our peers respect us for this, which often helps when it comes to negotiations and trial. In short, everyone knows we do a
professional job and work hard in an ethical, responsible way.
