Compassion for every criminal law case

Looking for a criminal lawyer in Tyler Texas? You’re in the right place. I’m Ty Czapla, and I care about every case. If you are under investigation for a crime, or have already been charged, you could be feeling more desperate about your circumstances than any time in your life. Hiring the best criminal justice attorney may be the most important decision you face in the near future. When it comes to criminal defense attorneys, you want someone who is experienced by your side.

Even if you are guilty of a crime, you still have rights. I have been fighting for the rights of adults facing charges in Smith County and East Texas since 2011. I even represent those determined to be too poor to afford retained counsel.

Our office takes appointments in Smith, Van Zandt, Cherokee and other East Texas counties. And, I am proud of my record of success and my reputation among county prosecutors and judges, as well as other criminal defense attorneys.

“Ty was absolutely amazing to me!

Criminal – Theft by Check Class A&B

A Criminal Justice Attorney with Integrity

It may be of some comfort to know that misdemeanor charges rarely go to trial. That is true of most felony charges, as well. Most charges are reduced or dismissed through skillful negotiations with the prosecutor.

I’m proud of my good reputation and integrity. It means I can be trusted when working out alternatives to the harsh penalties that can result from a conviction. When I come before the judge and assistant district attorneys (ADA), they are more likely to listen to my proposal.

Taking Your Case To Trial

After reviewing your criminal law case, we will determine if the ADA has enough evidence for a conviction. You can count on me to aggressively fight to keep a conviction off your record, including going to trial, if necessary.

In the criminal justice system, if you’ve been charged with a crime, especially if you didn’t commit a crime, the burden of proof is on the prosecution. They must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, with verifiable facts and circumstances.

Post-Sentencing Issues

Many criminal cases don’t end after initial sentencing. Individuals can find it difficult to follow probation and face motions to revoke. This can lead to severe punishments if not handled appropriately. Parole violations can also lead to severe consequences.

Finally, many clients find the most lasting effect of a criminal charge or conviction is how it affects their work and job opportunities. Convictions and even a deferred adjudication can show up on employer background checks. These public records can be expunged via an order of nondisclosure.

I have requested TLC’s services more than once. Each time the process to the end result was smooth, predictable and very satisfactory. Ty and Kacie Czapla have always made me feel comfortable while doing business with them. They are highly educated in their professions and have coupled Law with Accounting in the same office. Their communication skills would be impossible to beat. I really cannot express how ‘down to earth’ these people are and how they make you feel like ‘We are all in this together’. I consider TLC Law to be ‘My Lawyers’.

Kacie Czapla is truly one of the best lawyers I have ever had the pleasure and honor to work with, especially in helping us resolve my partner’s tax issues. She is an exceptional, caring professional that goes the extra mile for her clients! Kacie did an outstanding job of returning phone calls, emails, and taking time to explain all our options, so we could make an informed decision. Her patience and wonderful support, while she helped us navigate our tax issues( which was sometimes overwhelming to us), was amazing! Her extensive knowledge and background was impressive as she worked with us to provide options and a timely resolution. Thank you Kacie, for doing such a great job for us! Also Kacie followed up to make sure all issues were resolved–how awesome is that! I would definitely recommend Kacie for any tax services you would need; if you are looking for the best in this field, Kacie Czapla is the one that you want!
