Rings on Divorce Paperwork

Family Law and  Criminal Defense Lawyers in San Antonio

If you’re looking for a lawyer, chances are something has already gone wrong. Many people would love to make it through life without ever interacting with the court system. However, some situations require legal assistance.

The unfortunate fact is that most interactions with the courts are negative experiences. If you have been accused of a crime, it can be horrifying to realize that people think you are capable of something so terrible. If you are going through a divorce, it is painful to realize that your relationship is ending. No matter the scenario, it’s rare for people to look forward to needing a lawyer.

Our Legal Services

Our team understands how family law works in Texas. We can help you navigate the courts while going through one of the most stressful experiences of your life.

If you have been accused of a crime, we can help you fight the charges and maintain your freedom. If you are innocent, it can be scary to realize that you could potentially face prison time for something that you did not do. Your family and friends are probably in shock. You might find yourself in denial that this could even be happening.

You need a lawyer on your team who is not emotionally involved, someone who can stand up for your rights and fight for you in court. You need Zarka Law Firm.

If your marriage is ending, or if you need to determine paternity, are adopting a child, or have some other legal change in the composition of your family, you will also need a lawyer to assist you. If you are not familiar with the legal system, making these changes can be confusing and overwhelming. Plus, they often coincide with a very emotional time, making it even more challenging to navigate the legal system.

We can help you get through this difficult time so that you can come out the other end with the best possible result.
