Representing Mental Health Issues
Fort Worth, TX Criminal Defense Attorney
Mental illness is something which is often not taken seriously in the criminal justice system, although it can often overlap. If you have been diagnosed with a mental illness prior to your arrest or have concerns about your condition, the Law Office of Lisa Haines, P.C. can help. Our attorney, Lisa Haines, has more than 15 years of experience advocating for her clients who have mental health issues, ensuring they get medications. In some cases, she may even request possible mental health diversion programs or commitment into a facility for qualifying individuals.
You may be eligible for a mental health diversion program if:
- You have been charged with a non-violent offense
- You are out on bond and are not currently in custody
- You can express interest and ability in completing the program
- You have been diagnosed with a qualifying mental health condition
