Q: Im looking fir a criminal defense attorney gor my son hes 18 years old and deaf facing a serious charge and in jail
Hes is harris county they have reset several court date for lack of interpreter to talk to and for my son
My office helps all handicapped people. There are a lot of good lawyers on Justia.
The court and his lawyer MUST accommodate your son, and the fact that they have not got him an interpreter is unlawful and shameful!
The defense lawyer is required to notify the court at least three days ahead of the next court appearance to get a "sign" interpreter.
You can contact my office by email or at my website. My office does jail visits and we attorneys are allowed to meet with our clients privately, with contact, if needed to communicate.
I hope this helps.
