Midland Criminal Defense Lawyer Nationally Recognized Trial Attorneys

Local Midland Criminal Defense Attorneys

Protecting Our Clients’ Rights & Freedoms Throughout West Texas

Being convicted of a federal or state crime can have a lifelong impact on your life; in addition to facing harsh criminal penalties, you may lose your professional license, certain constitutional rights, and/or your freedom. Because so much is at stake, your choice of legal representation is extremely important. An experienced attorney will understand how to navigate the case from the investigation to the courtroom proceedings.

At Keith & Lorfing, we’re a local law firm known for providing our clients with high-quality, effective legal representation. Our office is located in downtown Midland to better serve our West Texas community. With over 70 years of combined legal experience, our team interacts daily with local judges and prosecutors. And because we were all former prosecutors, we know how opposing counsel thinks. Once you retain our firm, we can aggressively advocate for you and protect your legal rights during the entirety of the legal process.

“Before entering private practice, I served our community as an Assistant United States Attorney right here in Midland. I’ve raised my family here. I attend church here. Midland is my home. And I’m committed to doing everything in my power to serve this community to the best of my ability.” 
-Glenn Hardwood 
Of Counsel attorney at Keith & Lorfing

When to Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney

You should hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as you know that you are under investigation or about to be charged. During the criminal investigation, the police are building their case, and an attorney can offer you advice and protect your legal rights throughout this phase of the proceedings. They can also influence determinations made by the prosecution during the pre-filing stage (where they decide whether to charge you and how severe the charges will be). However, if you do not (or cannot) retain an attorney before you are formally charged, you should hire an attorney immediately after you are arrested.
