James Angelino: The Right Lawyer For Serious Criminal Charges

If you face criminal charges in Texas, an experienced attorney can protect your rights and your future. I am James Angelino, a criminal defense lawyer in Frisco, Texas, serving clients throughout the Metroplex. If you are reading this page, you have likely run into trouble with the law. Perhaps you have been charged with DWI, assault or another criminal offense. The consequences of a conviction are harsh, but, rest assured, you are innocent until proven guilty in the eyes of the law. The steps you take at this moment will play a significant role in shaping your future.

A Former Prosecutor And Police Officer Defending Your Rights

How badly do you want to beat this charge? People turn to me when the stakes are high, and they simply cannot afford to lose. In addition to my criminal defense experience, my background in criminal law includes the following qualifications:

  • Seven and a half years as a Dallas police officer and a total of 19 years as a certified Texas peace officer
  • Eleven and a half years as a prosecutor in the Denton County District Attorney’s office
  • Chief of the Denton County DWI Prosecution Unit
  • Certified by the State Of Texas in Standardized Field Sobriety Tests
  • Have tried over 400 jury trials
  • Retired LTC in the United States Army Reserve JAG Corps

Having worked as a prosecutor in Denton County, I have an in-depth understanding of how the prosecutors prepare cases against my clients. Having stood in the prosecutors’ shoes, I know how to make their job a difficult one. I know the issues they don’t want brought up at trial. I know which motions are likely to disrupt their game plan.

My deep experience in DWI protocols gives me valuable firsthand knowledge of the technical issues that a drunk driving case can hinge on. When the state builds their case upon faulty facts and spurious evidence, I draw upon my background in field sobriety tests and other technical issues to expose weaknesses in their cases.

If you cannot afford to lose this case, I am here to give you the best possible chance of winning. Numerous clients in Collin, Dallas and Denton counties have turned to me in their time of need and were glad they did. My record of success speaks for itself, and past clients have good things to say about me.
