Experienced Felony Criminal Defense Attorneys

Criminal defense attorney J.L. Pierce is a former police officer and prosecutor with more than 25 years of experience in Texas' criminal justice system. His legal career dates back to 1984 when he was first sworn in by Judge Richard A. Schell of the Eastern District as a prosecuting attorney. Mr. Pierce works with defense lawyer Tom O'Connell, who served as Collin County's elected criminal district attorney for 29 years. Their firsthand understanding of how the prosecution develops cases helps them defend clients accused of:

  • Federal drug crimes -- such as trafficking drugs across state lines
  • Racketeering -- including extortion, bribery, and fraud
  • White collar crimes -- such as embezzlement and money laundering
  • Internet crimes -- such as identity theft
  • Wire fraud, mail fraud, and bank fraud
  • Federal sex crimes -- including sex crimes against children

We handle high-profile cases in connection to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Federal prosecutors often attempt to tie an individual to alleged actions as part of a conspiracy. We present a sophisticated strategy to provide you with the best defense possible for your circumstance.

The attorneys at our law firm review the prosecutor's evidence and how they intend to present their case. We examine the case against you for weaknesses and design our defense to exploit those weaknesses. We conduct our own investigation by questioning witnesses and reviewing all the facts of the case, including any wiretap evidence. We vigorously challenge the prosecutors' charges, while determining if a trial is in your best interest. In some cases, we enter plea bargains to protect clients from risks in trial.
