I handle a variety of matters that directly and indirectly relate to a person being charged with a crime. My practice mostly focuses on criminal defense which allows me to gain a large amount of knowledge and experience in one area and gives my clients the representation they need.


An arrest can dramatically impact a person's life and the lives of those they love. I am committed to helping people obtain solutions to get them the best resolution for their situation. Every situation is different, therefore the way I approach each case is also different.

Collateral Consequences 

When a person is arrested a new charge is rarely the only consequence. There can be many collateral consequences of an arrest that you may not think about. Did you know that even if your case is dismissed your arrest is still on your record? I help clear client's criminal records through expunctions and non-disclosures. Another collateral consequences of an arrest or conviction can be the suspension of a driver's license. I have helped hundreds of clients obtain occupational driver's licenses and can help you drive legally immediately as well as get your driver's license back.

There can be many other consequences of an arrest and/or conviction that can affect your immigration status, housing, and even your ability to obtain your children in a divorce. Make sure you know the consequences of everything that occurs in your case, because many of collateral consequences of an arrest and/or conviction follow people for years and sometimes for the rest of their lives.

Affordable Representation

The Law Offices of Kathy Starling P.C., is committed to helping our clients find the best solution for their particular circumstances. Me or my assistants inform our clients on the details of their case every step of the way. Our clients are also encouraged to review the evidence against them, including all video and body cam footage, that the State of Texas or Federal Government has given to our office. We want our clients to know we have their best interest in mind and our clients are expected to speak up if they feel their case is going in a direction they do not agree with. I know that hiring an attorney can be expensive, and I personally believe many attorneys are too expensive. In my law office I ensure that clients are obtaining quality, affordable representation.  Every person is entitled to the best defense possible. If I take on your case, you can be assured that I will not be wasteful with your or your family's hard earned money. 

“To be an effective criminal defense counsel, an attorney must be prepared to be demanding, outrageous, irreverent, blasphemous, a rogue, a renegade, and a hated, isolated, and lonely person - few love a spokesman for the despised and the damned.”
