A Message from Roberto Balli
Webb County Criminal Defense Attorney
Our Philosophy and Guarantee to Our Clients....
The United States Constitution Guarantees that every person is presumed innocent. We take the presumption of innocence very seriously. We presume that our clients are all innocent of all of the criminal charges brought against them. Because of this philosophy we are always trying to get our client’s criminal cases dismissed. Dismissals may come in several ways. Sometimes we will try to persuade a prosecutor to dismiss our client’s criminal charges by showing proof on our client’s innocence. However, if we need to take a case to trial, we are always prepared. Criminal Defense Lawyer Roberto Balli has extensive trial experience having tried cases before every judge in Laredo, Texas, both in the Federal District Courts and State District Courts and County Courts at Law. Roberto Balli is certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
I am always looking for a way to get my client’s case dismissed. Sometimes, I will show proof to the prosecutor that a client is not guilty or should be given a break because of unique circumstances. Other times, a case may have to be fought out in court. No matter what I have to do, I will always fight for my client. That is my promise.
In January 2013, Roberto Balli was certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. The Texas Board of Legal Specialization awards a Board Certification in Criminal Law only to qualified licensed Texas attorneys. Attorneys must have practiced law in Texas for at least 5 years and must demonstrate that they have participated in a certain number of Criminal Trials and Criminal Appeals in State and Federal Courts. The lawyers must also demonstrate completion of a certain number of course hours in approved criminal law continuing education. The attorneys must then pass a comprehensive exam in Criminal Law that includes Texas Criminal Law, Federal Criminal Law, Texas Criminal Appellate Law, Federal Criminal Appellate Law, and Criminal Constitutional Law.
“This certification represents my on-going dedication and commitment to knowledge of the law. This allows me to better serve my clients.” - Criminal Defense Lawyer Roberto Balli
