Call me for a free consultation.
Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, all criminal offenses carry serious consequences. If you have been arrested, charged with a crime, or even contacted by law enforcement about a crime, you need to speak with an attorney immediately. It is far better to have your rights protected early than to disregard your rights and lose them forever. Call me to discuss your options before it's too late.
Your case is not over just because you have been convicted. You still have rights, even if a jury finds you guilty. Be careful, the time to seek post-conviction relief begins to run immediately, so don't let a day go by without contacting an attorney about your right to appeal, file a motion for new trial, or file an ineffective assistance of counsel claim against your trial attorney. I handle appeals and other claims for post-conviction relief in Texas and Arkansas, state and federal courts.
Expungement of Records
When you are arrested, the first question you may find yourself asking is, "What is my bond?" "Bond" is the amount you must pay the arresting agency or a bondsman to get out of jail while your case is pending. Call me before you bond out of jail to discuss your options.
This a very important area of criminal defense that many attorneys overlook. You need to make sure you are fully advised of the consequences of pleading guilty BEFORE you plead guilty. Even if you get probation, deferred adjudication, or pretrial diversion, the offense might remain on your record for the rest of your life, which can prevent you from getting certain jobs.
DWI / DUI Charges
Even though you might think DWI/DUI's are not a big deal when compared to other criminal offenses, there are many consequences of being arrested for DWI/DUI that many people overlook. Your driving privileges can be suspended, you could lose your job, and, if convicted, you might have to pay an expensive surcharge just to get your driver's license back. Call me to discuss the consequences of being arrested for DWI/DUI before you decide to take any "deal" from the government.
Possession, Manufacturing, Possession with Intent to Deliver, Simultaneous Possession of Drugs and Firearms. Each of these offenses involve the possession of illegal, controlled substances, and each can have a significant impact on your future and your freedom. Before you think you are automatically guilty of possession of any controlled substance, call me to discuss your options.
