I’m committed to Getting Your Criminal Charges Dismissed

Over the course of my twenty years of experience helping people with criminal charges, I’ve found that most convicted defendants lacked suitable legal counsel, while almost every defendant that had their case dismissed had an experienced criminal defense lawyer as counsel.

The message to people with criminal charges is simple; it’s a good idea to choose carefully among the available law firms to ensure you get the right legal help. Avoiding a criminal conviction and a criminal record could be as simple as hiring the right criminal lawyers for your case. If the lawyer is only interested in selling you on the idea of a plea bargain, without conducting a thorough investigation of the case, you’re probably working with the wrong attorney or criminal defense firm.

Furthermore, if the lawyer takes personal injury claims or does civil litigation work on civil cases, they’re not the attorney you’ll want if you’re charged with a serious crime like a felony offense. Jack-of-all-trade lawyers and attorneys who don’t exclusively work in criminal law are not the best options for jury trials in criminal court. Especially when a criminal conviction could result in a lengthy multi-year prison sentence.

On the flip side, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can usually get a flawed case dismissed with ease. A careful review of the facts involved with the case, the police reports from law enforcement, and a quick interview of the witnesses, could be enough for a seasoned criminal law attorney to get your case dismissed. I’ve practiced law in federal and state courts since 2004, so I know an important thing or two about getting cases dismissed.

Drug Offense Criminal Charges

If you were accused of possessing, manufacturing, or delivering a controlled substance in Angleton or elsewhere in Brazoria County, and you’re searching for the best legal services you can find, call my office. As a criminal defense specialist, I know the best methods of fighting drug possession allegations and why most of these cases are flawed.

Why Drug Charges Are Often Dismissed

If any of your Constitutional legal rights were violated or if the police can’t prove that you knowingly possessed a controlled substance, the state cannot prosecute. If you were unlawfully searched or police lacked probable cause, then you cannot be prosecuted. Although laughable, but an often occurrence, law enforcement can lose or misplace evidence. If law enforcement can’t produce the evidence, or if they “lost” the evidence, then you cannot be prosecuted, and the District Attorney will be forced to drop the case. These are just a few reasons why many seemingly “open & shut cases” are dismissed.

In Texas, criminal penalties for felony drug possession can range from six months to two years state jail and on up to 5-to-99 years for First Degree Felony drug possession. Whether you’re charged with a State Jail Felony dope case or more severe felony charges, my office will pay special attention to your case and focus on obtaining a good result for your specific situation.

Assault Cases

If you’re facing criminal charges for assault, we can help you. We’ve provided defense for people with cases related to self-defense and successfully defended individuals with aggravated assault charges.

Sometimes, tensions can run high, resulting in poor decisions leading to physical assault. Under certain circumstances, anyone could relate. Even if you’re guilty as charged, some judges and prosecutors can relate to certain situations and may be willing to compromise. If we can get your case dismissed or make a probationary arrangement, there’s no reason to waste years, even decades of your life away in prison.

If you’re looking for a criminal defense lawyer to help you with a simple assault case or a more serious aggravated assault charge, contact my office today at 713-524-6646 or 979-265-6800.

I’ve Helped on Hundreds of Domestic Violence Charges

Although I’m not a civil lawyer nor do I practice family law, I help people charged with domestic violence and assaults of family members. If you’re facing criminal charges for assaulting one or more family members, it’s important to fight this charge with no reservations.

As an experienced criminal defense lawyer, I know there are hundreds of people facing felony charges for nothing more than accepting a misdemeanor conviction or “plea bargain” on a previous family assault case that might have been frivolous.

The First Offense is A Misdemeanor

In Texas, the first case of family assault can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor offense, but any future arrest will be classified as a felony. I’ve seen many men & women take a misdemeanor plea to get things “over with.” Only for them to be arrested for a minor family assault case in the future, then blindsided by an unexpected felony charge.

In Texas, any unwelcome physical contact can result in assault charges. If you’re beefing with a romantic interest or another loved one, and they hall off and call the cops on you, depending on your past, it could mean a felony charge.

Regardless of how minor your assault on a family member charge may seem, you need to fight this case. Even if it’s just a misdemeanor, the minute you’re released from jail or post bond, talk with a lawyer.

I’ve remained active in the criminal justice system since 2004 and I’ve seen it all when it comes to domestic violence cases. If you need help fighting criminal charges based on accusations of an assault on a family member, my office will help you. We’ve helped folks with cases in Brazoria County, Fort Bend County, and on the docket at the Harris County court. To schedule your free consultation, call me at 979-265-6800 or 713-524-6656.

Looking for a DWI Lawyer?

Similar to domestic violence cases, first time drunk driving cases are misdemeanor offenses, but the stakes are raised on the second offense, and the third is a felony. If you’re charged with intoxication manslaughter or intoxication assault, it’s a felony offense.

A felony DWI offense is a serious criminal matter. A conviction for a felony DWI offense could mean multiple years in prison, Texas Driver License suspension, and a myriad of fines and surcharges in the future.

If you’re looking for an experienced, licensed Texas lawyer to help with a criminal charge for Driving While Intoxicated, contact us by submitting a contact form or by calling our law firm directly at 979-265-6800 or 713-524-6656.
