Getting arrested in Texas is a traumatic and devastating experience. Not only does a misdemeanor or felony conviction result in harsh penalties such as time spent behind bars and expensive fines, but also a permanent criminal record that can have a negative impact on your life and reputation. One of the most important steps to take immediately after arrest is hiring a lawyer to create a strong defense strategy on your behalf to obtain the best possible outcome.
At Milam & Fanning, PLLC, we are committed to protecting your rights, reputation, and future throughout the legal process. Our Waco criminal defense attorneys have more than three decades of collective experience helping our clients either get their case dismissed or obtain a lighter sentence to avoid jail or prison time.
Our legal team can review your case, determine your available legal options, and guide you through the complexities of the legal process. If we are not able to obtain a "not guilty" verdict or get your case dismissed, we can help you avoid harsh sentences—especially if it is your first offense.

"I will be forever grateful to David and his entire team! I highly recommend them!"From the time I first walked into the office of Milam & Fanning I was met with professionalism, kindness and quickly put at ease. After the consultation with David, Jason and Jennings, I knew they were the ones to represent me and walk with me through the process of my divorce. David was upfront with me from the very beginning and I knew the road ahead was going to be difficult. But I was assured they would fight for the best outcome possible for me. Throughout the entire process, Bobbi was my “go to “ person. She was always very prompt in presenting my questions or concerns to legal. Her follow through was always quick and her words of encouragement were heartfelt. I never felt like I was being intrusive and was always met with professionalism from the entire staff.

"The wisdom and professionalism was greatly appreciated."I will start off by saying the entire staff at the Milam and Fanning attorney office was such a pleasure to work with even under circumstances that were not pleasant. David worked intently for us & with us as he guided us through a divorce with our elderly father, which was something we never dreamed would happen at his age. The wisdom and professionalism was greatly appreciated. This group also made you feel extremely comfortable in their office, and we actually enjoyed the time that we spent there. We might actually stop by periodically to just say hi to them in the future.- Shauna S.
