OPERATION LONE STAR CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY
I began defending clients arrested for Operation Lone Star (OLS) violations for trespass in September 2021. I had to create everything from nothing and meet and greet everyone that matters. My "boots on the ground" approach forced me to navigate my case load like a huge ship making a sharp turn in a narrow canal. I have faced tremendous obstacles, kept afloat in choppy waters, with no life vest ever once handed to me.
But I learned and I supported friends and I burned bridges to non-friends.
At this point I have represented over 300 misdemeanor and felony clients. I no longer have OLS clients appointed to me by LPDO but I can take private pay cases and I promise to work to get your guy out of jail without delay. I promise you I WILL follow the client's wishes and let him plead and let him get out of ASAP. I will not be bullied into keeping your loved one in jail for political reasons!!
Kinney County, Texas is in the news a lot for being the seat of so many of the Operation Lone Star (OLS) arrests. The media makes false claims of racism and abuse. But I find Kinney County to be perfectly manageable. I have visited Kinney County many times and love its people. The Sheriff, County Attorney and County Judge are great men who I get along with and respect whole-heartedly. If your loved one has been arrested in Kinney County, have no doubt that I can negotiate their release and successful defense. I have even got my Mexico client's bond refunded once the case was resolved. No other OLS defense attorney can honestly say that.
In Del Rio, the Val Verde court system handles Operation Lone Star (OLS) misdemeanors and felonies. I have a great working relationship with the Judges, County Attorney, and the District Attorney and her Assistants. I have helped many felony clients successfully resolve their cases without needing to go to trial. I would love to go to trial but I abide by my clients' wishes and they have so far been very happy with the DA's ability to resolve the matters on the clients' first court appearance. My clients have been happy with my representation; their families are grateful; and the prosecutors are happy with my level of professionalism and ability to resolve cases quickly.
Criminal Trespass is usually a Class B Misdemeanor but in these OLS cases, the misdemeanor B has been 'enhanced' for punishment reasons to a Class A which is punishable by DOUBLE THE JAIL TIME!!
I know the law and I know the lawyers that matter. Through my goodwill, I have been able to negotiate the Class A back down to Class B so the maximum jail time is six months again instead of a year.
Human Smuggling is usually a Class 3 felony punishable by 2 to 10 years in TDC prison. Taking money for doing it would make it a 2d degree and punishable by 2-20 years in prison.
I have been able to negotiate Smuggling cases down to STATE JAIL FELONIES which carry a maximum sentence of two years and a minimum of six months!! I cannot promise that result for you, of course, but it is something we should discuss. Since many of the clients have already served six months in jail by the time they see a Judge, that's what we lawyers call "time served.". That's huge!
First things first: Let's get your loved one out of jail. If your loved one is in jail in Texas, for either Criminal Trespass at the border or Human Smuggling, then you need to get them the best most effective counsel you can afford and do it quick!
