Criminal Defense


Defending Those in San Antonio Who Have Been Accused of Crimes

Bringing justice for the innocent and helping the accused get help

If you’ve been arrested and charged with a crime, you need help right away. Whether you’re received a traffic ticket or been charged with a homicide, the right criminal law attorney can explain the charges, decrypt the process, help you make good decisions and work to protect your rights the whole time. I’m Bill Baskette and I’m fully prepared to represent you in your criminal defense. I’ve been practicing for more than 30 years, including nine years as a judge and several more as a prosecutor. At the Law Office of Bill Baskette, I know how to negotiate with prosecutors, develop strategies for the courtroom, defend you before the jury and represent you to the judge.

A solid choice to protect your freedom

If you’ve been accused of a crime — whether it’s a felony, a misdemeanor or a DWI — you can depend on me, Bill Baskette, for sophisticated legal representation and personal, professional service. Some criminal law attorneys know the Texas legal system from the outside, from defending clients in court. I know the Texas legal system from all sides — as a criminal defense attorney, as a prosecutor and as a judge. I offer high-quality criminal law defense for all state and federal crimes and criminal proceedings, including:
  • DWI
  • Domestic violence
  • Probation and parole violations
  • Internet crimes
  • Drug crimes
  • Sex offenses
  • Aggravated assault and murder
  • Felonies and misdemeanors
  • Motions to revoke probation
  • Protective orders
  • Traffic tickets
  • Wrongful accusations and convictions

Defending your reputation

Whether you’ve been arrested for aggravated assault or you’re under investigation for drug distribution (or any other crime), I can help you. No matter what the charges are, I provide an aggressive, persuasive defense with the goal of dismissing or reducing the charges and minimizing punishment.
