    • I recommend Carl Haggard.

    We are very grateful to have found Mr. Haggard and Nancy to represent my brother!
    I have dealt with a couple other attorneys before and I can truly say that this has been the most pleasant and professional one. I also want to add that Mr Haggard is very lucky to have Nancy working for him. From the beginning, she have always been very helpful, patient, and quick to answer all our questions! The customer service we got from them have been SUPERB! I really appreciate all that Nancy and Mr Haggard have done for my brother.

    Also, before the arrest, my brother had booked a trip abroad which was now pending approval from judge due to his felony charge. Mr Haggard pushed hard and was able to settle the case before the trip along with judge's approval to travel. Most importantly, the charge was dropped from felony to misdemeanor! That alone speaks volume. They always had my brother's best interest in mind.

    Again, thank you for everything! I will definitely be saving the firm's contact info to my phonebook in case we ever need their legal services in the future (hope that won't be the case) along with providing referrals to friends and family.

    • I recommend Carl Haggard.
    • I hired Carl 6-12 months ago.
    • Carl handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I came to Carl with two cases. I had an interference with a public servants charge that I was serving a year of pre trial intervention for, and -with one month left- I entangled myself in a verbal harassment case where a witness used my Fiancés' name and filed verbal harassment charges against me. Notwithstanding that I had already completed all the requirements of the agreed upon pretrial intervention, only the aforementioned time constraint was the flaw, if the new charges had not been dismissed, I would have had my pretrial intervention revoked, and could have been sentenced to six months to a year in Jail. Needless to say the verbal harassment case was so convoluted you almost literally needed a sword to cut through to the truth. 'This is one of the worst cases of he said she said I've ever seen' Carl proclaimed. Carl made the distorted clear and justice was served. I came to Carl in my hour of need the first time out of curiosity, but the second time because I needed a definitive result in my favor. I am happy to say that now my fiancé and I can get on with our lives together and live the quintessential american dream. We are free of the heavy burden that was upon us and Mr. Haggard -along with God- made that possible. I am proud to say Mr. Haggard is my lawyer and plan to use him again when my cases are up for expungement -in two years. The end result is such that I walked away with two cases dismissed, a clean slate, clean record, and most importantly my freedom.

  3. Thank you God for leading us to Mr. Haggard

    • I recommend Carl Haggard.
    • I hired Carl more than 3 years ago.
    • Carl handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Mr. Haggard and his staff have been praised over and over again at our home. When I was notified by police conecerning the case my heart sank. I was in total shock and very scared. I didn’t hesitate when I read Mr. Haggard’s website. I contacted the office and immediately decided to retain him to help prove these allegations were completely false. Dealing with children, stepchildren, spouses, Mr. Haggard must have a great amount of patience, wisdom and understanding for the family unit and tis great importance. He accepted my case and helped to keep our family from being torn apart by a jealous, angry ex-spouse. We did exactly as Mr. Haggard instructed: ‘Take a deep breath and understand this is a process…’ When things got rough Mr. Haggard and staff were always there to explain and calm the situation. Without their guidance and great experience and knowledge of the criminal and family court systems, I’m not sure how things would have ended. But it is just that – THE END – my case was dismissed !!! with the persistence and guidance of Mr. Haggard, who never backed down or wavered before the Houston DA’s Office. He is a wonderful and very knowledgeable attorney.

    • I recommend Carl Haggard.
    • I hired Carl 1-3 years ago.
    • Carl handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was arrested for possession of a controlled substance (pain medication). Like most people, I was overwhelmed by my arrest and the subsequent legal processes. I needed to find a good lawyer fast.

    I looked at a lot of lawyers, but I was immediately impressed with Mr. Haggard's extensive credentials and his website that contained a wealth of information and facts about the legal system. After discussions with Mr. Haggard's knowledgeable legal team and meeting him in person, I knew this was the lawyer for me. I was not looked down upon and I had a sympathetic and encouraging shoulder to lean on during a very trying time.

    Mr. Haggard helped me put together clear, concise documentation for the prosecutor and judge that helped explain my extenuating circumstances. Mr. Haggard and his team guided me through the entire process and led me to a successful outcome. I will also be working with Mr. Haggard to have my arrest record cleaned up.

    Mr. Haggard knows the criminal justice system inside and out. I would strongly recommend him to anyone that finds themselves worried and caught up in a tough legal situation like I was.

    Carl Haggard is a meticulous and experienced attorney, who will not shy away from being on the front foot in the court room. He was involved and thorough in his work and listened to me earnestly. He has years of court room experience and knows well how to interact with the DA's office. I highly recommend him.

    Last September I was arrested for misc assault with bodily injury. This was the first time I've had so much as a speeding ticket in my 52 years of life. To say that I was lost is an understatement. Carl took this case and saved my career and way of life. He worked very hard finding professionals to give expert testimony and got statements from ALL the witnesses to the incident. In the end the ADA in my case dismissed the case in the face of the evidence and the witnesses on my side, that he refused to see until the trial was ready . I can now move forward with my life with a still clean record. This was a very stressful time in my life. At times I got angry and depressed at the pace of this case. Carl was there to explain how the real world of law works as compared to TV law. Thanks Carl!

    I have hired Mr. Haggard three times for my troublesome brothers and each time I received the results I was hoping for. Most recently, my brother was wrongfully charged with aggravated robbery by a bitter girlfriend and was facing heavy prison time. He was considered a repeat offender; he had recently spent eight years in the penitentiary and so I knew the DA wasn't going to be lenient with his sentencing this time around. He spent three months in county jail while Mr. Haggard worked on his case and was eventually released with no charges because Mr. Haggard was able get a No Bill by the grand jury.

    Carl Haggard is an amazing criminal defense attorney who handled each of the three cases that I hired him for professionally and efficiently. I trust him 100% and would highly recommend him.
