Experienced Weatherford Attorney Defends Clients Accused of Crimes

Determined former Texas prosecutor delivers strong defense counsel

A strong defense is invaluable when your freedom or driving privileges are at risk. At the Kernan Law Firm, P.C. in Weatherford, I am an experienced Texas attorney who obtains exceptional results for people accused of crimes. For more than 20 years, I have litigated criminal matters as both a prosecutor and defense lawyer. Since my firm was established in 1997, it has been recognized by colleagues and clients alike for delivering outstanding advocacy and service. I focus exclusively on criminal defense and related matters such as probation, and expunction of records. No matter what charge you face or what type of evidence exists, my knowledge of criminal law, legal procedure and the Parker County court system will maximize your chance for obtaining a favorable result.

Established firm provides professional advocacy and service

My firm handles complex criminal litigation with the same professionalism that you find at major law firms, but in a small-firm setting where each client benefits from my:
  • Leadership experience — Through my work for the government and in private practice, I have earned a reputation throughout the area as a highly effective trial lawyer with a keen ability to detect and exploit weaknesses in a prosecutor’s case.
  • Knowledgeable advice — My firm offers skillful guidance on a full range of state and federal criminal matters. I have taken more than 70 cases to trial before a jury, and in hundreds of other cases I have succeeded in either getting charges dropped or pleading to lesser charges.
  • Caring counsel — Being arrested is a terrifying experience that often leaves the accused feeling powerless. I am here not only to fight for you but also to encourage you and offer confidence in this difficult time.
I am committed to providing exceptional advocacy and individualized service to each client I represent, starting with a free initial consultation.
