About Navid

Learn Navid’s areas of practice.

Facing a criminal charge can be both scary and confusing with potential penalties ranging from fines to probation to prison time. It is absolutely essential to know the rights each individual has under United States law in regards to arrests, trials, and sentencing. The value of a legal professional highly educated in Texas laws is invaluable in attaining the case results that are deserved.

Alband, Lane & Balderrama is ready to help you by providing experienced, insightful legal counsel. Our firm believes you are not just another number, but a person who needs assistance and deserves justice. Being arrested for a crime is a life changing, frightening event. What you need at such a time is someone who cares about what happens to you and who will work hard to protect your rights.

Our firm focuses on criminal and DWI cases in the Dallas-Tarrant County area, and our track record speaks for itself. We have a passion to help those in their time of need and are driven to produce results. A good Tarrant County criminal defense lawyer knows those faced with criminal charges need more than hard-hitting strategy; real value comes from a smart defense.

The only way to develop a smart strategy is to be prepared. We believe it is important to know the client, not just the case. That is why we treat our clients as valued individuals and not as just another case number. Our Tarrant County criminal lawyers become personally invested in every case and the success of every client, as it if were their own criminal case.

BEST
I have the extraordinary pleasure of having each one of these phenomenal individual attorneys take part in my case/s. Each one of them have went above and beyond their primary titles. I will not go into my ongoing case but I can absolutely tell you that before I had the privilege of having these Heaven Sent Angels brought into my life/case/s I had completely lost my faith in Attorneys. Every single individual in this firm has given me back hope, faith in our Attorneys and how how they will work for you. There is so very much I can say about the Alband Law Firm unfortunately there is nothing I can tell anyone about how unbelievably phenomenal this law firm is and how each individual go to their above and beyond compassion hard work dedication, and love of what they do. There truly are no words to express what they have done for my child and me. The only way you will ever know how Heaven sent these Angels are is to experience how far and beyond they will go for you. However unfortunate your situation or circumstances may be. The Number One in Attorney at Law. The Alband Law Firm. Thank you Ms. Luanne, Mr. Alband, Mr. Javier, Mr. Bill. Phenomenal does not even begin to describe this Law Firm.

NAVID IS AMAZING!!!
Navid has represented me twice. both times he was thorough and always on top of everything! No matter what your facing, he can always make something happen! He is also so easy to be honest with, as he is so understanding. And he is so good at hearing whatever fears you may have and making sure they don't happen! He is absolutely by far the best attorney I've ever had, and seeing other have bad ones to compare Navid and how great he was, with! He will jbe a lifelong attorney as well as friend! Thank you Navid!

Consummate Professional
I frantically was searching for a criminal defense attorney and having no idea where to start, I simply filled out a few web forms detailing my situation. Navid call first thing the very next morning! As many others who have reviewed Mr. Alband, I can certainly attest that the system is slow and Navid will tell you that upfront. However, he will also give you a honest look into possible scenarios for your case with the evidence and conversations that you provide him with. Luane is simply a huge part of what makes Navid's practice so comforting. She is able to quickly follow-up and takes great notes and relays concerns to Navid...she is truly a jewel. Thank you both!

GUARDIAN ANGEL DURING AN UNEXPECTED MOMENT IN LIFE
I am 44 years old getting arrested for the first time in my life, falsely accused, confused, fortunately stumbled upon Attorney Navid Alband. Attorney Navid and the very courteous, kind and non judgemental office staff which includes Louann, worked with me through this long process where patience is a virtue. Was never over promised, no false hopes. Just a bit of advice for any body that goes thru the criminal defense process, be ready to be patient and don't think Navid is not listening when the process takes time because the odds are its the system itself where attorneys have no control over. In my case the end result was a NOT GUILTY verdict by a jury. Navid in my case, felt like a guardian angel i met in an unexpected moment in my life, who listened to me, believed me and came thru for me.

Charges Dropped
I sought council from Navid after being charged with fleeing the scene of an accident. 2 visits to court later my charge was dropped entirely which was better than I could've hoped for. LuAnn filled in all the gaps by reminding me of dates, addresses and what I needed to do every step of the way.

Better not break the law but if you do he is your go to guy in Tarrant county with no question.. I unfortunately have a lengthy background and experience with high end lawyers.. He is your guy!

Personable and professional attorney!
Recently, our family needed the services of a criminal attorney. I called several law firms and all I was told was that someone would get back to me. Attorney Navid responded to my inquiry within fifteen minutes. By the time most law firms answered my inquiry, the Alband law firm was already half way done with our case. Navid walked us through the whole process and was available to speak to us whenever we had questions. He worked on our case and kept us informed even while he was away on a trip! When I had to leave on a trip, which had been previously planned, Navid and his staff kept in close contact with my daughter who needed all the support! I am sooo grateful for all the support they offered and will highly recommend their services!

Went The Extra Mile
I was appointed Navid for a white collar crime that I really didn't do. I was on parole and so obviously had priors. Mr. Alband's strategy was genius and went above and beyond what I've ever witnessed even privately hired attorney's do. He called my mom to go to the GRAND JURY HEARING!!! as a character witness for me and against the actual perpetrator of the crime. The charge was No Billed. Never before nor since have I heard of a defense attorney (especially an appointed attorney) go so far above and beyond what is considered "acceptable" in that community. I am hoping to hire him again for an over inflated charge trumped up by the Police State that is Tarrant County and am hoping he takes payments... Thank you Mr. Alband and I am so sorry it took so long to write this review.

Alband Law Firm provided a calm during a storm
Mr. Alband was great. He helped me with a criminal case that I was involved in and the case was dropped. The communication from him was top notch and I was always in the loop. My input into the case was always asked for and wanted to achieve the best outcome for me. I couldn't have asked for better representation. He believed in me and that provided me with peace of mind.

THE RIGHT CHOICE
If you find your self in trouble, make one phone call, The Alband Law Firm in Fort Worth. Navid and his staff are as professional of a group as I've ever been around. Their professionalism is one thing, but their knowledge of the law and compassion to what the individuals they represent are going through is what I think sets their team apart. His staff explained the process very clearly and made me confident I had made the right choice choosing an attorney. Navid offered many options moving forward with my case, which taking his advice, we ultimately decided to fight in court. Navid used his vast law experience, knowledge, and training to find several issues with the DA's case. He discussed these issues with the prosecutor and he then presented documentation and explained the situation directly with the judge. I was found not guilty of my charge. I can't say enough of how glad I am to have made that call to The Alband Law Firm. Choosing them to represent me over the many other firms I interviewed to handle my case, was one of the best decisions of my life. If you want someone who understands the stress you are going through, is down to earth, speaks to you in terms you can understand, with integrity, but more importantly, highly intelligent in law and the court system, make one call. NO QUESTION, THE BEST!

Great Representation
Mr. Alband and his team did a fantastic job given the toughest of circumstance. Mr Albands professionalism and on going due diligence to go above and beyond as well as look at other avenues proved very beneficial for our case. Time and thoughtfulness were given and greatly appreciated. The Alband Law Firm will get business again and I am happy to share with others my good experience.

FOREVER THANKFUL!!
I never thought Id be in a situation to where I'd need a Criminal Defense Attorney - Sadly, IT HAPPEN - DWI - I quickly learned the Tarrant County Legal process was overwhelming, unsympathetic and seemed brutal. After calling several offices & Attorneys trying to grasp whats next. I WILL NEVER FORGET THE CALL- Mr. Alband gathered facts an invited to his office to review my case- Mr Alband listened, showed empathy, educated and made me aware of the legal processes, my rights and yes at times what seemed like his Law Firm covered my back & my held my hand. Mr. Alband not only helped reduce my charges, no probation, guided me through the complicated process of maintaining a TX Driver's License but THE ALBAND LAW FIRM saw the BIG PICTURE - MY LIFE & CAREER For that I'm -FOREVER THANKFUL - I can not imagine using a different LAW FIRM A special appreciation for Luane Brungardt Legal Assistant for handling all my calls

Thanks to Mr. Alband, a two-count indicted felony case was dismissed completely
Thanks in to Mr. Alband's knowledgeable advice and seasoned judgment, the prosecution moved to dismiss its entire case (two indicted felony counts of aggravated assault) against my god daughter. This was the best possible result and Mr. Alband achieved it. Mr. Alband and his team met with my god daughter multiple times, went over the facts in great detail, investigated the case carefully and interviewed numerous witnesses. He and his team knew the facts cold and always thought of how best to present her case. He was the model of a professional attorney. The investigative work of Mr. Alband's team documented the many weaknesses of the prosecution's case. Acting on Mr. Alband's advice, my god daughter decided to stand firm. There would be no guilty plea, no wavering, and no concessions. Eventually, the prosecution was forced to acknowledge that the case was fatally flawed and moved to dismiss it. Mr. Alband's deep professional knowledge and ability to chart the best course in the ups and downs of litigation (change of judges, prosecutors, etc.) was evident to me throughout. (I am retired attorney who practiced in New York and New Jersey.) A criminal record would have put a low ceiling on my god daughter's life. Now, freed of this limitation, she can choose her path without the heavy limitations imposed by a criminal record.

Very Good Lawyer
If you need good help or are in trouble, then you need to give this guy a call. He met with me quickly and listened intently to my side of the story. He was then very upfront and honest about what was in store for me. It may not happen for you but everything and I mean everything he told me would happen did in fact happen that way. I had a fantastic result. I really believe that it was his actions that made this happen for me. I'm damn glad my son found him. Navid was very pleasant every time I spoke with him. His staff were also very nice and helpful every time I called and ask a question. I did call a lot too. Good luck and if you call, it will be worth it.

Highly recommended! Straight up lawyer.
We were referred to Navid from a retired & respected lawyer, so before we ever met Navid, we knew we were in good hands...and Navid & Luann held up to our expectations. We expected a lot b/c my husband was falsely accused of felony theft and we didn't want to take any deals offered. Navid went to bat for us the whole time and we were ready to go to trail, but the case was finally dropped. Navid believed in us and always had our best interest in mind. Luann was always great to work with and always was available to talk to or would call you back in a very timely manner. These guys are the best! They are very honest and believe in doing whats right. Like others said, you can tell he is well respected by everyone in the court room. Hopefully we never have to experience anything like this again, but if we do, I know who we will call.

One of the best lawyers in Tarrant County
Navid is kind and actually cares for his clients. I was able to come to him without being judged or treated like a case number. He treated me like a person. Mr. Alband will work hard for you and guarantees results. I recommend him highly.

Very good, very professional, very timely.
Had a Domestic dispute that was heated but not that serious. Sheriff's department came out and immediately tried to find someone to put in jail. When that did not work they decided to issue citations for assault by contact although there was no assault of any kind. Navid took care of both tickets for both both parties and had the case dismissed within 60 days. He was thorough in his communication and explained his approach to the case. Felt relieved the second I contacted him. If you are issued an assault by contact ticket contact him immediately.

He is the best. I can't say enough good things about him,
First I want to say that Navid Alband is not what you expect a lawyer to be. He is kind, intelligent, patient and caring. There aren't enough words to explain what an extraordinary man he is. His assistant, Luann is as awesome, patient and kind as he is. He will listen to you and does all he can to understand the case My daughter was protecting herself from a domestic violence act. The act ended badly and she was arrested. This occured in a county close to Ft. Worth. The county sheriff investigator decided she was guilty as soon as he was on the scene. While she was in jail, her father had an encounter with a TV news reporter from Ft. Worth. She was not requesting an interview.She referred him to Navid Alband. I believe God was involved in that meeting. Navid is an excellent lawyer with extensive understanding of the law. After my daughter got out of jail, Navid and a professional forensics person came to her house and did a thorough investigation of the crime scene. My daughter requested to be able to view and read and review all the records. Navid allowed my daughter and I to go to his office over several days. She found a lot of conflicting evidence admitted by the county. We then had a meeting with Navid to discuss her findings. He met with the DA and the ADA many times to get this case taken care of. Five months later the case was dismissed. Praise God. If you are in need of an attorney who handles criminal cases, you can't do better than Navid Alband.
