About Chambers County, TX

Chambers County, TX, is a county in the Greater Houston metropolitan area. The county was founded in 1858, named for Thomas Jefferson Chambers, a major general in the Texas Revolution. Chambers County’s county seat is Anahuac. The county was a sparsely populated farming community until the Texas oil boom, which brought new residents to the area looking for work in refineries and shipyards. Today, Chambers County has taken on a more suburban character as many residents commute to Houston for work.

Frequently Asked Questions about Criminal Defense in Chambers County, TX

How much does it cost to hire a criminal defense lawyer?

While you may be concerned about the cost of hiring a private criminal defense lawyer, you should bear in mind that a public defender may not be an option for you. Courts normally only appoint public defenders for people who lack the financial resources to hire an attorney. In addition, a private criminal defense attorney will likely have more time and resources to devote to your case. An experienced criminal lawyer can make a difference in the outcome of your case, so you usually get what you pay for. You should contact criminal defense attorneys to understand the fees that they charge and to learn more about the payment options they offer, such as accepting credit cards or payment plans. 

Do I have to answer the police’s questions?

Remember that you always have the right to remain silent when you are detained or arrested by the police. You do not have to answer any questions about any crimes that the police may be investigating. If police officers or investigators begin asking you questions about possible crimes, politely inform the officers that you are exercising your right to remain silent and then keep silent. You should also tell the officers that you want to speak to a lawyer, which means the police must cease questioning you until you have consulted with an attorney.
