Welcome to DFWCrimes…unparalleled experience

You may be feeling anxious, confused, angry, scared, or a multitude of other feelings as a result of this ordeal. In any event, the sooner you start assembling your defense, the better.

Simply put, the attorney you employ when you hire the Law Office of Katheryn H. Haywood has it all. With over 20 years of experience, I am not new to defending clients who need an immediate solution. My experience is absolutely unparalleled. My experience as a former city and county prosecutor, a municipal court judge and over 15 years defending felony level cases gives me a proud advantage. I have had numerous not guilty verdicts and dismissals; and I combine this comprehensive, individual experience with a teamwork approach hiring private investigators, expert witnesses and consultants as needed to bring you an unequaled level of service and expertise.

What to expect

What is my greatest concern or fear regarding these charges?

The answer to this may vary. You may be worried about the stigma of an arrest or conviction. You may be concerned with the financial burden. Perhaps the limitations on your rights or freedoms is your primary thought. But for most people accused of a crime the single biggest fear is punishment, what will happen to me.
I can help you discuss these fears and answer your questions. I can formulate a defense strategy to focus on your primary concern.
If staying out of jail is your only goal, I will work to achieve probation or a reduction of the charges. If clearing your name is your fervent desire, we will proceed to trial and mount the most effective defense available to you.Whatever your fear, I will listen to you and work with you.

Is the firm I hire concerned with my problem and helping me find a solution?

No one cares more about the accusation than you and your family, but I will make your future my goal. I will work with you to find a solution you can live with or we will fight the charges and test the strength of the government’s case.

Is an experienced firm that thrives off of commitment and teamwork important to me?

It should be! If your lawyer doesn’t care about your case no jury, judge or prosecutor will!

Will my firm be there for me, from beginning to end?

When you hire me, I will prepare all motions, interview your witnesses, learn your story and defend you in court. Period. While an associate might appear in court to pass your case on a setting, I will be the attorney working with you and fighting for you from day one to the day you walk out of the courthouse.
