Criminal Defense

 At Jethva Law Firm, we understand that an arrest or criminal investigation is a very stressful situation. Your life can change in an instant, from possibly losing your job, to your drivers license, suspension from school, and the list goes on. When you hire us, you're not just hiring an attorney, or a law firm to handle your problems for you. You are hiring someone who looks at you as an entire person, rather than just another client.

If you have been arrested, have an arrest warrant, or find yourself the subject of a criminal investigation, it is important that you contact a qualified Austin defense attorney as soon as possible. Payal Jethva takes the initiative and starts working on your case the moment you hire her. Many times the best results can come by getting ahead of the case and starting early. We will advise you on the best course of action to take in the moment, and immediately begin working on a strategy to assure the best result possible. 

All too often, people wait too long to hire a competent attorney. Without the best guidance early on, you can make costly mistakes in regards to your criminal matter, possibly making your legal troubles worse than they have to be. A qualified and aggressive criminal lawyer often makes all the difference in the world.

Family Law

Divorce and child custody matters are some of the most emotionally difficult and painful legal issues people deal with. It is important hire a family lawyer who is both aggressive and smart, as well as sensitive to your particular situation, and careful with you and your family.

Attorney Jethva is both a skilled and tactful negotiator, who understands that in many cases the best and most economical way for a client to handle a family law matter is to stay out of court when possible. That being said, she will not hesitate to try your case to a judge or jury, or have contested hearings when negotiations break down or no longer serve her client, or their children. 

The benefit of a client-centered family law practice such as ours is that we always advise the best course of action for the client's individual needs. Where many lawyers choose the route that earns them the largest amount of hourly bills, or alternatively, the easiest and laziest way out of a hard case, Payal Jethva will never compromise on integrity and work done right.
