Practice area

Arrests and criminal charges can be embarrasing and worrisome.  I understand the nature of criminal defense because I have worked on the other side.  As a former Assistant District Attorney for Tarrant County, I have handled some of the toughest criminal cases presented for prosecution. 


As a former police officer with the City of Arlington, I understand police protocol and will hold the police accountable.  


You don't have to accept defeat when arrested for a crime.  You still have the right to an attorney, and a succesful defense could make all the difference.

Attorney you will definitely one on your side
I highly recommend Lesa Pamplin to represent you in a criminal case . She was very responsive and knowledgeable about how to proceed with my sons case . A few years ago he went to court did his time but was sent back to county for an old case that should have been taken care of back then . With her expertise in the criminal case, was able to get it dismissed.

Best Lawyer in DFW
Lesa is best Lawyer today I have came across. first catching my case I was paying for a lawyer that didn’t do nothing for me and was just taking my money while I’m sitting in jail. & I found Lesa less within 48 Hrs of being paid she was at the court and got my Bond dropped from $175K to $30K and got me out of jail. Got out on a Ankle Monitor and she got me removed off of that early so I could work. It took some Time but a Year and few months later I stayed patient and believed in her like she told me she would do & Got my Case Dropped and dismissed. Thank you Lesa

Best Defense Attorney in Dallas/Tarrant County
Lesa was our first and only call, my family was facing significant charges and time, Lesa came through for us! She is the best defense attorneys in the Dallas and Tarrant Counties! She is an accomplished attorney who is frank, reliable, and true to her word. She kept it real while remaining professional and hopefully we won’t need to, but we would hire her again without a doubt.

Lesa is heaven sent!
My son's dad was facing 25 years for shooting someone 4 times in self defense. We fought it for almost a year but lesa never gave up!! She has to be the best lawyer because I've never came across one that knows the justice system is screwed and she does everything possible to get your freedom. She never let us down and now the case is completely DISMISSED!!!! Lesa is truly heaven sent. She kept my family together!

Hands down, one of the best in the DFW Metroplex!
Lesa is one of the best Lawyers in the DFW metroplex hands down! She saved me from prison time as I was facing 20yrs on a 2nd degree felony. She was very knowledgeable and an exceptional help when guaranting her work. She always came through when I needed her. I'm so thankful I would recommend her to anyone.

Top-notch, action-oriented attorney who helped us avoid 5+ years in prison by partnering with us to prove my brother's innocence
My brother was arrested for a crime that he did not commit based upon his prior criminal history and guilt by association. The police allowed the actual culprits drive away, while they detained my brother and put him in jail. He retained the services of an attorney (not Lesa initially) to represent him and help prove his innocence, but after 6 months (and more than a dozen attempts on my part to connect with him regarding my brother's case, evidence, his defense strategy)...I concluded that he'd made no effort to do so. He was too busy and encouraging us to take the "path of least resistance". In fact, he encouraged my brother (and my family) to take anything less than a 5-year sentence offered by the DA. He told us that taking his case to trial would result in a minimum 25-year sentence if my brother was found guilty. Adamant that he was innocent, my brother (while scared) did not want to go to prison for something he did not do. So, he was ready to risk going to trial. I could not allow him to go to trial with an attorney who did not appear to have time to take any action on his behalf. While he said he believed my brother was innocent of the crime, he made little-to-no attempt to obtain the evidence, polygraph, eye-witness testimony we requested. After months of non-responsiveness...and out of total desperation, I reached out to Lesa's office for a free consultation - in hopes that she could help us prove his innocence. After 6 months on probation, calling in daily, reporting for random UAs on a weekly basis and spending 2+ months sitting in jail (for a crime he did not commit)... Lesa and her staff acted with great urgency and action to help us help him! Within 2 days, he was out of jail. While monitored during this time, she was able to help get his restrictions reduced (to an 8 p.m. curfew). She was able to get access to video footage and other evidence and connect us with a highly reputable polygrapher to help build his defense. Within 2 weeks of bonding him out, she was able to take all of the evidence and the results of his polygraph to the DA and ultimately had the entire case against him thrown out. My family is so grateful to her and her legal team for preventing a flawed system from stealing the next 5+ years of his life. I will never be able to express how eternally grateful we are to Lesa for helping us get "real justice" for my brother!

LESA, is the world greatest attorney.Choosing her to represent our son was the best decision our family made.
Our son had three aggravated robbery with deadly weapons.The state was offering 40 years to a person who haven't never been in trouble in his life.After months of negotiating the state gave their final offer of 25 years which would've made my son do 12 years just to come up parole.We said NO,Lesa Pamplin went to work.She was not afraid of the state,she fought as if our son was hers.Lesa Pamplin is the lady version of Perry Mason. Thats's right an attorney that actually fights for her clients… she is truly God Sent. If ever you need an criminal law attorney this is the woman you want on Your Team period point blank...our son ended up with only five years… she Saved our son…what a real life blessing she is.

The best attorney in DFW...For sure!
A very knowledgable and skilled attorney!! My son was looking at 2 Felonies and 2 Misdemeanors at the age of 17... Mistakes he made that he couldn't undo...Lesa fought hard for my son. She explained every step and made sure that we were comfortable with the process. Very honest and straight forward...she let my son know that he had to get his act together and stop the nonsense. When I called her office I never got the run around or an answering machine. At the end of the process... she had 1 felony and 2 misdemeanors dropped and the remaining felony dropped to a misdemeanor!! My son got 2 yrs probation instead of yrs in jail. I will always be greatful to her for all that she did. If you want the best attorney on your side... call Lesa Pamplin!

Mrs. Pamplin managed my case with confidence and control through out the entire process. Her knowledge and expertise was greater than I imagined, and I couldn't have asked for better representation. She was very easy to work with and she keep me well informed of all the phases of my case from beginning to end. She kept it real while remaining professional and i would hire her again without a doubt. Her prices are fair and her determination is what you want on your team.
