A Proven Criminal Defense Lawyer For The Dallas-Fort Worth Area
I am attorney Sally Goodman, a Texas native. My law firm focuses on one area of practice: The aggressive defense of individuals caught up in the state and federal criminal justice system.
I have worked for more than three decades of my professional career defending people in state and federal courts throughout Texas. I have seen firsthand how a criminal charge can destroy the lives of the individuals as well as members of their family. It is even more difficult to accept when the individual did not receive the vigorous defense representation guaranteed to all individuals by our U.S. Constitution.
An Experienced Lawyer For Many Types Of Criminal Charges
I understand the strategies prosecutors use in the courtroom. I am one of the few board-certified Dallas attorneys in criminal law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, earning this rare certification through extensive education and relevant experience in the field of criminal law.
Backed by a knowledgeable, dedicated staff of legal professionals, I represent clients who face criminal charges, including (but not limited to):
- Crimmigration: A criminal conviction can have serious consequences for a person’s immigration status, including possible removal from the U.S.
- Federal crimes: My experience includes high-stakes litigation against federal prosecutors and complex trial strategies.
