About me

Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyer

"I'll be Your Voice In The Courtroom" - John Raggio

If you or someone you know has been accused of a criminal offense in the Dallas, Texas area, my law firm and I can help. Throughout the years as a criminal defense lawyer I have earned a reputation for being a relentless and zealous advocate for my clients.

When you are facing a difficult legal situation, it is important to have an aggressive criminal defense attorney by your side. Most of my business comes from satisfied clients who have recommended me to others in need of legal assistance. I work to maintain that hard-earned reputation by consistently providing my clients with the highest level of personalized service and knowledgeable criminal defense representation.


Aggressive Legal Representation

Protect Your Constitutional Rights

No matter what you have been accused of, I'll listen carefully to your side of the story, investigate the facts of your case and advise you of your legal rights. I am straightforward with my clients and inform them of their available options and the possible consequences of each course of action.


In some cases I may be able to get the charges against you dropped and the case dismissed. In other situations I can negotiate to get the charge reduced to a lesser offense.  If you have a prior criminal charge, I can advise you regarding options to seal your records.


Throughout my years as a criminal defense attorney I have earned the respect of state prosecutors and U.S. Attorneys, as well as the gratitude of my clients. To learn more about how I can help you, please contact me as soon as possible.
