Aggressive Property Crimes Defense — R. Todd Bennett

Similar to theft crimes, property crimes can run the gamut from vandalism and tagging (graffiti) to arson. Charges filed will depend on the nature and value of the property damage. If you are charged with a property crime in Texas, you are facing serious consequences that can permanently affect every aspect of your life, from your reputation to your freedom. Hiring the right criminal lawyer can make a difference in how your case is handled and in how it is resolved.

If you are looking for a well-qualified criminal defense lawyer to handle your arson, criminal mischief or property crimes case, find an attorney who has experience as a former prosecutor, who is board-certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and who is listed in Best Lawyers in America.* Through my years of practice, I have achieved these awards and distinctions, among many others.

I understand that when you come to me following an arrest, you may be vulnerable and even desperate to protect your future. I work hard to achieve the best result for each client — I want to win for each client, but I also want to win for myself. Contact my law office
