Wichita County Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you face criminal charges, the consequences can have a long-term impact on your job and your personal life. The most important first step is to retain the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the Texas criminal justice system and how to work within it.

I am attorney Rick L. Mahler. I worked in the Wichita County District Attorney's Office for 22 years before founding my own law firm. Now, I defend individuals across north Texas who face a wide range of criminal charges. The insights that I bring to my work having been on the opposite side of these cases for more than two decades is invaluable. I understand the prosecution's approach, I know how to accurately gauge the strength of the state's case, and I'm able to develop effective strategies to minimize the impact of criminal charges on my clients' lives.

I represent clients in the full scope of felony and misdemeanor charges, including:

  • DWI
  • Assault
  • Drug crimes
  • Sexual assault
  • Weapons crimes
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Probation violations

Speak With Me Before Talking To Authorities

One of the most common mistakes that I encounter with individuals who face criminal charges is they wait too long to call a lawyer. Individuals who have been arrested frequently speak too openly with law enforcement officers with the misunderstanding that if they "come clean," the authorities will be lenient. It doesn't work that way.

The best way to minimize the impact of an arrest on your life is to retain knowledgeable legal counsel who will guide you through the judicial process. There may be a valid reason to share information with authorities, but you should allow a criminal defense attorney to help you make that decision.

I work with clients throughout north Texas from my office in Wichita Falls. I emphasize a highly personal approach and work directly with my clients from start to finish. Unlike larger law firms, which may bounce your case among junior attorneys and paralegals, I will represent you at every step. I respond to messages promptly and make myself available in the evening and on weekends when necessary.
