How Can Our Firm Help You?

Our team has a strong background in criminal defense, having successfully represented clients in a vast number of cases. We have successfully defended our clients in high-stakes scenarios ranging from very serious violent crimes to drug crimes to DWI. In addition to routinely tackling criminal defense cases, our San Marcos trial attorneys also have extensive experience handling all matters of family law. This is a broad area, and many cases that pass through the system are highly emotional in nature, often testing close personal relationships, breaking down long-term connections, and causing worry when dealing with children and your family. In the most ideal cases, divorces and custody arrangements are relatively amicable, and this allows the entire process of reaching agreements on property division, custody, and child support to be as pain-free as possible. Sometimes, however, a smooth and friendly ending is not possible, and the courts and legal system will be required to take action, making key decisions that have the potential to impact your future. This is where we come in to protect your interests.

Our firm is also prepared to assist individuals and families who are navigating the United States immigration system. From green cards to deportation defense, we offer compassionate, results-oriented representation designed to help you achieve your immigration goals. 

Integrity with Every Interaction

When you trust our firm with your case, we work with integrity from start to finish, making sure that you have the facts you need to make informed decisions. We will always be transparent when discussing your legal options and will never make promises we cannot keep. Our team prioritizes our clients’ best interests over our fee and will work tirelessly to secure the best possible outcome for your individual situation.

Whether your case involves criminal law, family law, or immigration law, our team at The Law Offices of David C. Hardaway can provide the aggressive advocacy you need to move forward. Our office is centrally located about 14 minutes from the San Marcos Regional Airport and accessible from several major highways. We are less than five minutes from Texas State University and not even one mile from the walking trails at Bicentennial Park. Our San Marcos trial lawyers are happy to serve individuals and families in many areas throughout the region, including but not limited to San Antonio, Seguin, Gonzales, Bastrop, Wilson, Medina, Guadalupe, Caldwell, Comal, Bexar, and Blanco Counties.. We are a client-focused firm and will stand beside you in your fight for justice.

How Do We Build Relationships?

  • Do Unto Others. When you hire an attorney, you want them to treat you like a human being, not a file or case number. You want your attorney to understand that you are experiencing a personal crisis so that they can make your case a priority. This is how you can expect to be treated by our team.
  • Accessibility. Each of our clients is given the personal cell phone number of their attorney so that they can reach us anytime, anywhere. And yes, we will answer our phones in the middle of the night.
  • Honesty. We have lost potential clients by telling them what they need to hear instead of what they want to hear. This does not bother us. In fact, we would not have it any other way. We will not blindside a client by painting them a pretty picture when the facts of their case do not warrant it. We will also not convince someone to hire our firm when we know we cannot help them. We do not want to make our living this way. You work hard for your money, and we do not want to take it from you unless we intend to earn it through honest effort.
  • Trust. Our clients put a lot of trust in our team, and we like to return the favor. If you cannot pay the entire fee upfront, that is okay. We will let you make your own payment plan. You tell us what you can pay and when, and we will hold you to it. We will treat you like a responsible adult, not a criminal.
  • Results. Obviously, results are extremely important, and we are very proud of the results we have been able to deliver to our clients. We fight hard for our clients, and the outcomes of their cases reflect that. With that said, every situation is different, and we do not want to mislead you by comparing apples to oranges. Make an appointment to speak to a member of our team so that we can give you an honest assessment of your case.
