Protecting Your Rights And Defending Against Criminal Charges

It is scary for anyone to be arrested or charged with a crime. It is even more frightening for people who are not U.S. citizens. It is important to remember that you have rights, including the right to talk to a lawyer.

At the Law Office of Valdez & Monárrez, we are here to protect your rights. If you are arrested, call us at 956-278-0888 as soon as possible. We will explain your rights and options, and we will stand by you through the criminal process.

We can help with criminal cases, including:

  • Drunk driving (DUI or DWI)
  • Federal and state drug offenses, including possession of marijuana and other drugs
  • Assault and battery charges
  • Theft charges
  • Fraud charges

One of our founding attorneys, Carlos Monárrez, used to work as an assistant district attorney in Texas. He now uses his extensive knowledge and experience to help people who are charged with crimes, especially when a criminal charge affects someone's immigration status ("crimmigration" cases).

What Happens After I Am Arrested?

Once you are arrested, you need to hire a lawyer or use the one provided to you by the state. As your lawyer, we will talk to you about the process and how the district attorney will make a determination. We will then show up to court with you to enter a plea of not guilty and proceed to defend your case.

Don't Wait To Talk To A Criminal Defense Lawyer

It is important to talk to a lawyer as soon as you can after being arrested. Call us at 956-278-0888 for a free consultation or send us an email. Our main office is in McAllen, Texas, and we handle cases throughout the Rio Grande Valley and in the Houston area.
