The Wilder Law Firm understands the difficulties you face during this challenging time. You are not alone.

Do not wait to begin building your defense.

Award-Winning Legal Representation

Even the allegation of a violation of Texas law can forever change a defendant’s life. An arrest can be a traumatic experience, and law enforcement can use very aggressive interrogation techniques in an attempt to get you to say something they can use against you. It is paramount that you remember that you are not required to answer their questions and have the right to an attorney. Law enforcement is highly trained to extract incriminating information during your questioning, but a seasoned lawyer could help prevent mistakes while looking out for your best interests.

Whether you are facing a traffic violation, a misdemeanor, or a felony, an experienced Texas criminal defense lawyer is there to protect your rights. Attorney Wilder will help you through the entire process of your case, from your arrest & arraignment through a final trial if necessary. A conviction on your record can impact your life for years, but with help from a criminal defense attorney, you can increase your chances of a better resolution.
