A Personalized Approach to Texas Legal Practice

At Your Side Every Step Of The Way

The criminal justice system in Texas can be intimidating and confusing. A conviction can have serious consequences for both juveniles and adults, but those facing charges often are unaware of how to defend themselves. Your criminal defense attorney should help you understand your rights and fight to protect them.

At the Law Office of Joshua P. Murray, PLLC, our criminal defense attorney, Crystal D. Murray, is a former Texas prosecutor. She has experience with both sides of the criminal courtroom and will aggressively defend you. If you or someone you care about is facing charges in Central Texas, including the Cedar Park and Leander area, contact us to schedule an appointment with attorney Crystal D. Murray.

Fighting Texas Criminal Charges With Experienced, Zealous Criminal Defense

We look at every case from both a defense perspective as well as the prosecution’s and develop a strategy to best defend our client’s interests. We have represented adults and juveniles against various misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

  • Juvenile crimes
  • Drunk driving (DWI)
  • Possession of a controlled substance and other drug charges
  • Assault
  • Family violence
  • Theft

We are here to help you fight the initial charges, avoid probation revocation, obtain expunction or expungement, seal juvenile records and request early termination of probation.

Understanding The Criminal Defense Process

Regardless of the charges against you, the criminal defense process is much the same. The important thing to remember is not to talk to anyone until you are able to talk to a lawyer.

Officers will charge you with the crime and likely arrest you. Before any hearing takes place, you will likely spend some time in jail, but we can put you in contact with a reputable bondsman. After bond is denied or you are let our on bail, we will go to work investigating the claims against you.

We conduct a thorough investigation which includes a discovery process, reading the police and investigation reports and obtaining information from the prosecutor. After the investigation process, we will go to work negotiating on your behalf.

You are always in control of whether to accept a plea bargain or go to trial. We will aggressively protect your rights in both processes.
