About Macy

Learn Macy’s areas of practice.

I moved from Tulsa to Dallas in 1990 to attend SMU, where I majored in English. After attending graduate school at SMU, I worked as an editor for Taylor Publishing Company in Dallas. I then returned to SMU in 1999 to study law.  When I graduated from SMU law school in 2002, I knew that the only thing I wanted to do was practice criminal law. I quickly established myself as an aggressive trial attorney, and I have been fighting criminal cases ever since. My practice is primarily in Dallas County and Collin County. I have had hundreds of trials and contested hearings, where I have successfully gotten cases thrown out by judges, dismissed by prosecutors, and acquitted by juries. I handle a wide range of misdemeanor and felony cases. About one-half of my cases are DWI or DUI. The other half of my caseload includes drug crimes, theft cases, weapons offenses, burglaries, robberies, charges of assault (especially family violence) and much more. If there is a way to beat a case, I will find it.

Listens, Believes in and Really cares for her clients...
I got a DUI.... And I was a nurse at the time so I had to get another attorney in Austin to protect my nurses license.... She came up with a plan and at the end of it Macy had the plea for obstruction of a Roadway....

Committed to Clients - Macy Rocks
I hired Macy in order to have a interlock removed as well as to curb AA meeting to allow me more time to help others. These cases can take some time to prove oneself to the judge and supply enough information for Macy to leverage within the case. Macy is a rock-star by all means, with going the extra mile to listen to collect relevant data before a judge to review. Macy TRULY cares for her clients and if you are seeking a person with the latter; please stop here. Both matters were won due to her knowledge and court guidance. Thank You Macy for your time and understanding. I was treated as her only client out of many that are lucky to have Macy's experience.

I was in need of legal representation after being charged with misdemeanor theft/500 in Dallas County. After reading Macy Jaggers' reviews, I contacted her and told her what happened. Ms. Jaggers listened to me, walked me through the process and told me her strategy. She was an open book and a top notch professional who did exactly what she had set out to do, get my case dismissed, she has set me at ease and removed this black cloud from my head. I cannot recommend her enough, if you are in legal trouble and need an advocate and legal rock star, Macy is the clear and ONLY choice, dont screw around with lightweights, make sure you hire the undisputed Heavyweight Legal champion, Macy Jaggers.

More Than I Could Have Ever Hoped For!
Macy was able to assist in getting a loved one's case dropped before it was even filed with the DA. Along with having excellent communication skills, she is efficient and courteous. On your legal journey you will find that many lawyers are awful at communication, leaving you on edge and anxious about your case- Macy is not one of these lawyers. She will tell you what to expect and leave you with a much needed sense of well-being. She will also return your e-mails and phone calls and follow up with you as your case develops (believe it or not, this seems to be a rarity among many lawyers). I cannot recommend her enough!!

Mrs. Jaggers answered my question on line. She was spot on. She gave me hope for resolution. I would hire her in a second. The world and no less the judicial system needs great caring people like her. Pastor Jim Conroe Tx

She went into the courtroom very confident and prepared. She did her research and got my assault charges dismissed. She was also super sweet which calmed my nerves during this difficult and emotional time.

Great Lawyer to work with.. Best in Dallas!
I hired this attorney to help me in a criminal case againt me from someone that lie about the entire thing, The first time I spoke with Mrs Jaggers I wasent to sure about it, i had never worked with a lawyer before so i was kinda unsure about hiring her or any other lawyer, I spoke with her the first time and she provided me with alot of great information such as what could happen, how she would handle the the case and what i need to do, I felt great after the 1st converstation but still waiting additional time to decide. Then one day i made the call to her to let her know i would like to hire her to represent me, until this day I still feel i made the best decision ever, she is wonderful person, she will go strait to the point, no hidding fees and over all she will follow up in our case and send you letter or call you to tell you the status of your case. I never had a problem with her, I would definately recommend her and re hire her again if i needed someone i could trust.. My case was dismiss! Thank you Mrs Jaggers

Awesome Attornet

My AWESOME attorney!
I chose Ms. Jaggers for her experience. From the beginning she showed aggresiveness in handling my case. I appreciate her honesty and how down to earth she is. Ms. Jaggers is extremely experienced and knowlegable in her field. I am also thankful that she did not try to just make money off me by talking me into going to court when there was not a good chance of winning. She was honest and explained everything to me and guided me into what I think was the best possible outcome for my case. I know she would have wanted a win but I know Im happy with the way things turned out. I owe Ms. Jaggers more than she knows and more than I will ever be able to repay her. She went as far as to get me an early dismissal once I completed all the terms of my probation and did not ever charge me extra for that. Ms. Jaggers, you will alwasy have a dedicated client in me if I ever need legal representation. I hope I never land into trouble where I would need your services but if i ever do I will know 100% that I will be in excellent hands. Thank you again for everything. You are truly AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Out of state DWI
I'm an out of state resident who was in TX on a business trip. I was arrested for DWI and needed to hire an attorney. I called 5 attorney's and they all seemed disinterested or unaware of the legal ramifications to an out of state resident facing DWI charges. I was more nervous and discouraged about my situation until Macy Jagger took my call. I felt like she put her paperwork aside, turned her chair and spoke to me. She answered all of my questions with confidence and offered to research what she was unaware of. My case was pretty clear cut that a DWI would stick but she was fair and honest when conveying that information. She worked to get me the best deal possible and her payment arrangements helped me to meet my obligations. I'd recommend Macy to anybody for any service.

Unfortunately, I required the services of a lawyer to face charges. With so many to choose from, I was referred to Macy through a friend. From the initial consult, I knew she was the one. Knowledgeable, honest, straight forward, and no BS. Just results. There is no doubt that I would go directly to her if I needed an attorney again. I do not hesitate in recommending her to anyone and everyone. Macy is amazing.

Natural Strategist
Ms. Jaggers is a natural strategist and problem solver. Her commitment to her client(s) is greater than that of any attorney I have used in the past.
Posted by JMMA | October 30, 2012
AAA+ Attorney [Attentive, Awesome, & Assertive]
When I contacted attorney Jaggers, I had already met with most of the “best attorneys” of Dallas (as named by the D Magazine). However, her poise as well as her trusting knowledge about the legal process and individual treatment of each of her client’s cases lead me to believe that she is indeed one of the best. She will not cookie-cut your case as I found all other attorneys trying to do with my case. Most other attorneys would “guarantee” that my case would be dismissed for (of course) a fairly large amount of money and I (the client) had to do all the work…. Really! I’m not saying that Ms Jaggers’ services are “cheap” but rather that her services are inexpensive for a result tailored to your specific case. She is sincere in telling you the reality of your case and she will not guarantee you anything except for great representation and hard work on your behalf. She will sit with you and give you the time to listen to your case carefully and fully - then provide you feedback of your options. She gives you peace-of-mind while the process is pending and will help you be at ease. Although our cases are still pending, I am confident that whatever the outcome – I trust that she had done everything in her power for my benefit and will be greatly satisfied. I’ve dealt with many other lawyers… so trust me when I say: She and her office are the quickest responders to your inquiries – it will blow your mind away.
