Located in Northeast Tarrant County, and a southern portion of Denton County, Southlake is a city of 25,000 located in suburban Fort Worth and is best known for its outstanding public schools and state champion Carroll High School football team.

Michael Goolsby is a Southlake criminal defense attorney and personal injury lawyer that Southlake residents can count on when facing criminal charges or dealing with the aftermath of a serious or fatal accident.

Texas is among the most dangerous states in the nation for traffic accidents and the fast-growing Dallas-Fort Worth area is no exception. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports an average of more than 3,000 motorists a year are killed in Dallas motor vehicle accidents. And Texas routinely ranks alongside California and Florida as the most dangerous state in the nation for car accidentsdrunk driving accidentsmotorcycle accidentsbicycle accidentspedestrian accidents and trucking accidents.

Southlake Car Accident Attorney Michael Goolsby knows what it takes to build a personal injury orwrongful death case capable of winning the compensation you need and deserve. Determining who is at fault and the circumstances surrounding an accident may require independent investigation. Actionable parties may include at-fault drivers and their insurance carriers, your own insurance carrier, and even a vehicle manufacturer, local municipality or an at-fault driver’s employer. Victims of an accident may be entitled to payment of current and future medical expenses, lost wages and monetary damages for pain and suffering.

As a former Dallas assistant district attorney, Michael Goolsby knows what it takes to protect a client’s rights in the wake of serious misdemeanor or felony charges. As a Southlake criminal defense lawyer he handles all types of criminal cases, including drunk driving, drug possession, drug trafficking, juvenile charges, domestic violence, assault and battery, sex crimes, theft crimes, burglary, robbery, shoplifting, larceny and auto theft.

Those facing drunk driving charges should immediately contact an experienced Southlake DWI defense attorney. The State of Texas charges more than 250 people a day with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In the vast majority of cases, authorities hope you will simply plead to the charges. We think that’s a mistake. Drunk driving charges are often beatable – particularly for first-time offenders — while a conviction can cost you as much as $20,000 as well as jail time, job loss and the suspension of your driver’s license. Contact a Southlake drunk driving defense lawyer to review your case and discuss your options.

As a Southlake juvenile criminal defense lawyer, Michael Goolsby takes special care in working with children who have been charged with a crime. Kids make mistakes. The juvenile system is designed to be rehabilitative rather than punitive. Too often, that gets lost amid the zealous prosecution of young offenders. Parents need to understand the importance of protecting a child’s rights and keeping their criminal record clear of juvenile charges. Parents who think these charges will magically disappear in adulthood, or won’t impact a child’s long-term outlook, are often dead wrong.

At The Goolsby Law Firm, we know the importance of assisting teenagers and families in dealing properly with a criminal allegation so they can have the peace of mind that comes with putting the incident behind them.
