If you have been arrested you should consult with our office immediately. A Texas criminal case is extremely serious and anyone accused of a crime should not speak to the police without an attorney present. We should be able to defend you regardless of the crime that you may have been accused of committing.
Having a good Texas criminal defense attorney is extremely important for felony charges. However, anyone accused of a misdemeanor should hire a criminal defense attorney as well. Anyone convicted of a crime may have to tell any future employers they were convicted of a crime. Many individuals convicted of certain misdemeanors may even be prevented from working in certain professions in the future. A criminal defense attorney can help individuals to seek the best possible outcome of their criminal case. While the charges may not be dismissed, it may be possible to have them reduced or to obtain a not guilty verdict at trial.
When an individual is convicted of a crime, their sentence can vary widely. Individuals in Texas may be sentenced to probation, community service, fines, drug treatment, and jail or prison terms. Individuals accused of a crime may also lose their job. Individuals who are accused of any crime should contact our office as soon as possible. Even if you have not been arrested but are under investigation, we may be able to assist you by beginning to prepare your defense.
Individuals who are accused of a crime should work with a criminal defense attorney who has an excellent reputation and a vast knowledge of police procedure.
