Experienced leadership. Kernan Law Firm’s lead attorney Deborah Kernan has focused on criminal practice for more than 17 years. Deborah began her career as a prosecutor in the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office, where she gained invaluable insight into the methods of criminal prosecution in Texas. Deborah went on to establish the Kernan Law Firm in order to protect individuals against wrongful charges and excessive penalties. Today Deborah is well known throughout Parker County as a highly effective trial lawyer with a keen ability to detect and exploit weaknesses in a prosecutor’s case.

Friendly personal service. Our Parker County lawyers are caring and compassionate. We know clients often feel afraid or that they are at the mercy of the police and courts. We are here not only to fight for you but also to comfort you in this difficult time.
DUI and DWI expertise. Our DUI lawyers are highly skilled at defending against DUI and DWI charges. We attack all aspects of the prosecutor’s case to give you a solid defense. We investigate the events surrounding your being pulled over to determine if the police officer had reasonable suspicion to stop you. We also examine the police report, methods of sobriety testing, and all other circumstances of your arrest to see if there were any violations of your rights which could render evidence inadmissible.
Drug offenses expertise. Our drug possession attorneys are also extremely thorough in examining the circumstances surrounding police investigation and arrests. We fight vigorously to ensure that only properly obtained evidence can be introduced at trial. And we especially excel at making compelling arguments which raise reasonable doubts in the minds of jurors.
Assault and battery expertise. In order to convict a defendant on charges of criminal assault or battery, a prosecutor must show that the defendant possessed a very high level of criminal intent. The prosecutor must prove that the defendant was unprovoked and that he acted willfully or recklessly. Our assault and battery lawyers are highly skilled at focusing on the element of criminal intent. We make it extremely difficult for the prosecutor to show the very high level of criminal intent that is required for a conviction.
