The word “trial,” may terrify you. In reality, a trial is an ordeal for most people. Feeling anxious and hopeless is not uncommon. You’re fate in the hands of another can be unruly. However, it is important to remain calm and communicate with your attorney.

During a trial, the main goal of any attorney is to advocate for their client. The attorney must establish a dialogue that persuades a judge or a jury that the client is innocent.

The Marroquin Law firm is experienced and passionate about advocating for their clients. From jury selection, to opening and closing arguments and witness selection, we will work diligently to prepare an arsenal to help you achieve the best possible outcome in your criminal case.


During pre-trial motions or even during a trial, you reach a point in the case where the only option is to negotiate with the prosecutor. Although it is not as favorable as receiving a dismissal, negotiating a plea deal may be the most convenient, economical and realistic way to resolve a criminal charge.

Negotiating a deal with the prosecution does not necessarily mean you have lost. For a misdemeanor offense, such as DWI, your attorney can negotiate a pre-trial diversion or deferred adjudication, which delays the entry of a guilty verdict. Typically, the successful completion of probation and other requirements from the court, allows the defendant to avoid a charge on their criminal record through expungement or a non-disclosure agreement.

The Marroquin Law Firm is experienced in negotiating with prosecutors and will fight to secure you the best outcome for your criminal case.
