Where We Serve

The Law Offices of Swanton & Frederick are located in downtown Waco, Texas, across the street from the McLennan County Courthouse. We defend clients in the Central Texas area, including McLennan County, Hill County, Bosque County, Falls County, Bell County, Coryell County, Williamson County and Limestone County; and Federal cases throughout the Western District of Texas. We are experts at dealing with the courts in these areas and are familiar with all the people involved in the criminal justice system.


A Message To Students And Parents

Waco and the Central Texas area have many fine colleges and universities. If you are a student or the parent of one and you encounter a legal issue, we are prepared to help you. We have represented hundreds of students over the years of our practice. We are familiar with the local legal system and the school disciplinary procedures. We can help guide and defend you through the entire process, from when the accusation arises or the arrest is made through the final resolution of your case.

We know this is probably your first encounter with the law, and we are here to explain everything to you and to be your advocate, your friend, and someone who can help relieve some of the burdens you will encounter in the criminal justice system. You will not be alone.

Often, parents are footing the bills for college, and if the student allows us to do so, we can also keep your parents informed of what's happening with your case. You have the right to confidentiality, but you also can waive that right under such circumstances.

A Note to Parents
If your child faces serious charges such as possession of illegal drugs, DWI/DUI, or other issues, it is crucial for him or her to have competent, experienced LOCAL legal advice. Criminal convictions, both felony and misdemeanor, can affect your child's job prospects and future. We will do all we can to defend your child against any and all charges he or she faces.
