Lloyd S. Gastwirth

Criminal Defense Attorney

With decades of experience defending my clients’ freedom, I’ve always enjoyed being a guiding hand in times of great need. When my clients come to me, it’s the least I can do to provide a listening ear because I want to make it clear right off the bat — they are not in this alone. They come to me for support and strong legal help, not someone to pass judgment and negativity. When you come to my office, I’ll assist you with whatever criminal charge you’re facing.

Texas Shoplifting Charges:
What You Should Know

Depending on the value of what was reported stolen and other circumstances, you could be charged at the misdemeanor or felony level. Having an experienced criminal defense attorney gives you a better chance of getting those charges reduced or possibly dismissed altogether.

You deserve to tell your side of the story.

Tell Me About Your Case.

Accused of a Drug Crime?
I’d Like To Help.

Although the legalization of marijuana has gained ground in many states, Texas is not one of them at this point in time. Like cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, and other controlled substances, you want to avoid getting charged with the possession or distribution of marijuana. No matter the drug crime you’re up against, I encourage you to call me for representation.
