Houston, TX · Criminal Defense Attorney · Board Certified
Houston criminal defense attorney Jack B. Carroll is Board Certified by the Texas Board Legal Specialization in criminal law and handles most cases in Harris County. He has practiced criminal defense law in Houston, and federal courts, for more than 20 years with the exception of a brief stint as a corporate attorney for two international companies as a result of being recruited directly out of law school.
He scored within the top 10 percent on the Texas Multi-State Bar Exam, and is one of the best at what he does. 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 staff in state court, federal courthouses, as well as by other criminal defense attorneys in Houston. Though inside the loop, he thinks outside the box & isn’t afraid to stick his neck out for a client.
He learned early on that anyone working to be the best criminal defense lawyer 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 taking cases to trial court in Harris County.
Prosecutors spend most of their time at the courthouse and know the “thems that do & the thems that don’t.” Court settings in Harris County are often adversarial, and if the prosecutor makes a plea bargain that’s 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.
