One Of The Best Criminal Defense Lawyers In Texas " No Ones Beneath The Law withTanner"
I'm a 42 yr old African American male.
My problems started 24 yrs ago, at the age of 17. I first met Mr. Tanner after making a request to the Judge to replace the court appointed attorney, who couldn’t seem to stop resetting my court case while I sat in the county jail. The judge then assigned Mr. Allen Tanner to my case. Mr. Tanner was Knowledgeable, and very concerned about the charges that were filed against me in the Felony District Court 178th
I was being accused of injury to a child, and after hearing the facts about what really happened, Mr. Tanner knew the only way to get this behind me was to bring the case to trial.
After preparations and getting the facts and witnesses together a trial date was scheduled.
The day of the Trial Mr. Tanner astound the jury with nothing but the truth and facts of this case. The Former Houston City Council Member Joe Roach, who at the time was the prosecuting attorney had to Acknowledge Mr. Tanner’s Professionalism and passion for the case.
I can remember palms sweating heart racing and about to faint when the jury had decided. The verdict came quickly, it was less than an hour when Joe Roach whispered to Allen "I think you got this one".
The Jury came out and read the verdict... NOT GUILTY.
I couldn’t really think at the time with so much going on. What I could remember is the Jury being very upset with the prosecuting attorney, I still remember Joe Roach standing in front of the Jury hands stretched out saying " I was only doing my Job"
In a separate incident while being incarcerated in the county jail awaiting trial for the injury to a child case, I was accused/charged of assaulting an officer.
Bottom line, I didn’t do it. I was the one who was assaulted by three officers.
After the incident actually happened the Sargent on duty ask both me and the officers what happened.
After explaining that the officer who actually initiated the assault to me, not only assaulted me, but used racial slurs, the Sargent on duty turned his back and said "Right'em up".
A Right-Up, at that moment I thought that meant loss of privileges or no visitations.
A day later I heard my name being called and received an indictment hand delivered thru the bars of the Harris County Jail by the same Sargent who was in charge the day of the incident.
“Here we go again I thought”
I guess Deputy Leal the other two jailers and the Sargent may have thought this would be an open and shut case, simply because when it came time to bring this issue to court Officer/Deputy Leal was sitting in the court room, I can remember he had a devilish smile on his face when he saw me shackled being escorted in.
I noticed how that smiled turned upside down when they all found out who my Attorney was.
When Allen Tanner walked in something happened, not for sure what it was but he said the D.A wanted to talk to me, I agreed.
She specifically asked, what would you like to do, I replied and said I have a lawyer and I'm sure we're gonna try this case in front of a jury have you spoken to my Lawyer, she replied and said that’s why I'm talking to you Sir.
Bottom line to make a long story short the case never made it to trial, it was dismissed
I keep a Certified Copy of the Disposition of these cases to remind me of how lucky I was to have been a client of Mr. Allen Tanner, and if all this isn’t enough to show the Virtue, Courage ,Diligence and Tenacity of this criminal Defense Attorney then I don’t know what else to say.
Oh wait, maybe I do. All this happened over 24 yr's ago, and back then I was 17 yr's old indigent and didn’t have the money, Allen Tanner at the time was a Court appointed attorney.
The only other thing I can say is you can trust this Lawyer. Remember If he's your attorney let Mr.Tanner do what he's experienced at doing …..winning cases or getting the best legal results Possible in your FAVOR.
