Houston Criminal Defense Attorney Jack B. Carroll is a Houston based (Harris County, TX) Board Certified Criminal Defense Lawyer.

- If you, or someone close to you, has been charged with a criminal offense, call me ASAP.
His criminal trial results, most from Houston-area criminal cases, are a testament to his skill as a criminal defense attorney.
Mr. Carroll is well respected by court staffs in state courts, federal courthouses, as well as by other criminal defense attorneys in the Houston area. Though inside the loop, he thinks outside the box & isn’t afraid to stick his neck out for a client.
He learned early on anyone working to be the best criminal defense attorney in Houston had to be ready to go to trial & not be mindlessly bound by convention, or precedent. Many of his case dismissals are a result of him taking cases to trial court in Houston.
Texas prosecutors spend most of their time at the courthouse & know the “thems that do & the thems that don’t.” Houston criminal law often is adversarial, & if the prosecutor makes a plea bargain that is turned down by the client, one alternative remains: change your “Not Guilty” plea to BEG.
If the lawyer is not a trial attorney by nature, blessed with a well-known reputation, the criminal defendant may be treated poorly.Jack B. Carroll

Mr. Carroll has learned by hard-earned experience that criminal offense reports don’t always tell the truth, the whole truth & nothing but the truth. Nor do they tell the whole story, & he never forgets the presumption of innocence.
If defendants assert they are innocent, they will be treated as such (regardless of Jack Carroll’s personal opinion).
Jack Carroll isn’t too busy or self-important to return a phone call & doesn’t resent calls from clients or their families. He doesn’t cheat, nickel & dime his clients or pawn them off to another lawyer.
Houston criminal defense attorney Jack B. Carroll has never been disciplined for professional misconduct. (Link to Jack Carroll’s Texas Bar Registration)
