About

I am Laurie L. Key from Lubbock Texas, and I am a federal criminal defense trial attorney. I represent clients throughout the south plains region, including the counties of Lubbock, Hale, Hockley, Lamb, Floyd, Swisher, Bailey, Terry, and Castro. I also provide legal advice to students and their parents of the various local universities and colleges, including Texas Tech, Lubbock Christian, South Plains, and Wayland Baptist. I have extensive trial experience in both federal and state court.

I represent clients arrested or charged with a wide range of crimes, including:

  • Federal Criminal Cases
  • Drug Offenses
  • DWI and DUI
  • Violent crimes, including all misdemeanors and felonies

I pride myself on having a casual attitude, making my clients comfortable as soon as they step in my door. This is especially important since an arrest or charge can be very confusing and frustrating. I want to put you at ease, and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Communication with my clients is vital because I believe my clients should always know exactly what charges they are facing and what is going on with their case at every step in the legal process.

I handle your case from beginning to end and provide legal representation from pre-trial negotiations to bond hearings and then throughout a trial if necessary. I handle all investigations, including examination of potential witnesses, and I aggressively litigate on behalf of my clients, ensuring a fair and just trial. The goal is to minimize any fines or prison time for my clients.

Contact the experienced and skilled attorneys at the law firm of Laurie L. Key to schedule a free initial consultation. My two locations make me very accessible, and I offer both evening and weekend appointments. My services are affordable and cost-effective. I accept payment plans, and I would gladly discuss the best option for you.
