    • I do not recommend Carl Haggard.
    • I hired Carl 1-3 years ago.
    • Carl handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    Many years ago. I used Mr. Haggard's experience and guidance and was really not that amazed with his level of knowing how the justice system works. In many times when I was going in and out of the courtroom for my one case. He made me feel like or his confidence was more than what REALLY was going on. He tripped on the way up when sentencing was happening and was really embarrassing for me as a client of his in front of the judge, after all I paid thousands of dollars for him to give a reduction in a non-felony case? Seems stupid, I think in all he did me bad in having me serve some time in for something I didn't do and on top of that paid crazy fines to the city, do yourself a favor and hire someone else, he was a bad mistake and his secretary is fake as they come and she wasn't helpful. I just didn't like how he kept me misinformed and his knowing what and how the case would go was really more questions than answers, which if you have been arrested, being arrested and looking at time isn't good, you need someone who will you know you can trust. I would never suggest him to anyone if anyone I knew needed help in any arrest matter. Also, don' trust a attorney who puts $ first and you at a second distant.

  2. 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.

    • I recommend Carl Haggard.

    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!

    • Carl handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    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.
