Why do you want a criminal defense lawyer’s number in your phone? It should be self explanatory but many don’t think they’ll ever need it. Fair enough.
There are two main reasons.
The First Reason
I recently spoke to several groups of non-lawyers about criminal justice. They were interested in my topic but not particularly excited or passionate. Why should they be? To them criminal cases happen in newspapers or on television and — like advertising — it might affect a few people out there but it doesn’t affect them.
At the most recent lecture, I decided to bring the topic home for a more engaging discussion. I wanted the audience to know why they all needed our phone numbers in their phone. And the answer is simple — You don’t lead a life of crime and you don’t plan on getting arrested…? GREAT! Me too!
But Rosenthal & Wadas has built a big criminal defense law practice right here in the suburb of McKinney, Texas? How did we do that…? Because people’s sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, grandsons, granddaughters, sisters, brothers, friends and co-workers are getting arrested here. They get arrested for DWI, domestic violence, drug charges, embezzlement, sexual assault and on and on and on.
Now, when a criminal case gets hot — it gets hot. When the arrest or accusation happens — the case is hot. We potentially create more value by getting into a case right at the beginning than at any other time. This is because we can represent someone during an investigation or sometimes just help put the fire of an arrest out so we can begin getting to the bottom of what happened to get the best end result.
Sometimes key legal advice or representation at the inception of a case can make the whole thing go away. You read that right.
So if you don’t plan on ever getting arrested — great — but put our number in your phone for when you get an unexpected call from a co-worker, friend, or just a non-conformist family member. People’s friends and loved ones are being arrested every-day right here in Collin County and they’ll often turn to you looking for direction. I hope it is never your loved one, but why not be prepared?
Our office has a lawyer on call 24/7.
The Second Reason
Putting our number in your phone is free. (972) 369-0577.
