Kent’s personal level of passion is incredibly difficult to match. You see, he’s always been a ferociously aggressive guy. During law school, he fought as a Golden Gloves boxer and earned a first degree black belt. He doesn’t fight physically anymore, but he does put that aggressive nature to use for you in the courtroom!
Don’t let that scare you off, though. Kent understands the difficult time you’re going through. In person, he’s caring and takes time to understand all the challenges you face with your criminal charges. He also has a great sense of humor to help you dissolve some of your tension.
And when you hire him, you get his undivided attention. He personally does all the work on your case. If you hire attorneys from larger law firms, they may oversee your case, but many times they hire inexperienced associate lawyers to do the legwork. Sometimes, those associate lawyers also argue on your behalf in trial!

Fact: not every criminal defense attorney or law firm in Plano gets you the same legal outcome.
The truth is two different lawyers often get you wildly different results – even if they theoretically represent you for the same crime.
For example, take a look at this case. Criminal defense attorney Kent Starr helped this client, accused of manslaughter (which has a 2-20 year prison sentence by the way), go home a free person.
Here’s how the story goes:
A certain client (we have to protect their confidentiality) approached Kent for legal representation. This client was accused of killing another individual in Collin County, TX.
This client was charged with criminally negligent homicide (has a 180-day to 2-year sentence). The client actually admitted involvement with the death of another person. However, the client did not believe their actions amounted to criminally negligent homicide. Kent agreed with the client on this, and thought a prison sentence for their actions was completely outrageous.
So, Kent discussed the charge of criminally negligent homicide with the Collin County district attorney – and it didn’t go well. In fact, the district attorney was so outraged over Kent’s arguments that he actually increased the charge to manslaughter (which has a 2-20 year prison sentence).
Now, most inexperienced lawyers, and some experienced ones who’d rather just collect a check, would have immediately sought a plea deal. That could have sent the client to prison for several years!
But based on over 20 years of legal experience, Kent knew the district attorney hoped to intimidate him. He planned to get the client to agree to a plea deal.
However, Kent strongly believed this client did not deserve to go to prison. He even did extensive legal research on other similar cases and found those individuals also did not go to jail.
He presented that research to the district attorney and the judge, but they still thought the client should go to jail!
Rather than back down, Kent took the case to trial. He presented the same legal research he showed before to the jury. After an intense, stressful, and draining 1-week trial, the jury agreed with Kent: the client was “not guilty” of manslaughter!
That’s the difference an experienced passionate, attorney makes. While an associate, inexperienced, or uncaring criminal defense attorney would just give up, take a plea deal, and send the client to prison for a few years, Kent fought until this person went home free – just like they deserved!
Make no mistake about it – Kent’s not the type of lawyer who gets guilty criminals off of charges based on legal technicalities. He’s the high-integrity type of lawyer who helps you get the just legal outcome you deserve.
Once he understands all the facts of your case, he’ll let you know exactly what he can and cannot do for you. Regardless of your personal circumstances, Kent does guarantee he will do everything in his power to get you the best legal outcome possible.
You can’t afford to waste any time. Plano law enforcement officials start building their case against you the minute (or sometimes weeks or months before) they arrest you.
