About me

Richard C. McConathy represents men, women and youth facing misdemeanor and/or felony charges in Dallas-Fort Worth and surrounding communities.  McConathy is the owner and managing partner at Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy.  The firm focuses on alcohol related crimes such as DUI (Driving Under the Influence), DWI (driving while intoxicated), Public Intoxication and Intoxicated Assault.


With an area as large, exciting and lively as Dallas, TX, the Dallas Police Department will constantly be on the lookout for drunk drivers, and a DWI conviction can follow you for the rest of your life.  While first and second offenses are classified as misdemeanor crimes, the penalties include thousands of dollars in fines, jail time with no less than 72 hours, ignition interlock devices and much more.  A third DWI offense is considered a third degree felony with extremely higher penalties. 


A person charged with any crime should immediately start preparing their defense to avoid further repercussions.  Besides the legal ramifications, a DWI or alcohol related crime may cause serious problems for your future, like difficulties finding employment, joining armed services, obtaining special licenses and getting financial aid for students.  Your best defense is to obtain an attorney with knowledge and experience representing the particular accused crime.  Richard McConathy represents individuals facing both misdemeanor and/or felony charges including possession of marijuana in Dallas.


Since 2002, McConathy has fearlessly defended thousands of clients charged with varying degrees of DWI’s, alcohol related crimes and all other criminal misdemeanor and felony charges.  If you would like to discuss your case with Dallas criminal defense attorney Richard C. McConathy during a free, in-depth consultation, call Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy at (972) 445-4300.
