We are excited to announce the formation of Andor, Goheen, O’Toole, Wadas & Gonzalez, P.L.L.C., the Collin County Law Group. We pride ourselves on being Collin County’s premier criminal and family law firm. We are accepting cases in Collin county, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and all-over north Texas. We have positioned our firm to represent our clients efficiently, effectively, and aggressively; no matter the legal issue they are facing.

The five partners who started the Collin County Law Group have over 100 years of combined criminal and family law experience, hundreds of jury trials in Texas state courts and multiple years of experience in the federal district courts of the Northern and Eastern districts of Texas. We have helped clients through custody modifications, complex divorces, serious felony allegations, complex federal drug and white-collar matters, DWIs, and many other legal issues. Some of our partners are former prosecutors, others are veterans; and all are committed to fighting for the rights of their clients.
