THE IMPORTANCE OF CRIMINAL DEFENSE
Criminal charges can have serious consequences on your future. That is why choosing the right criminal defense attorney is such an important decision. We understand that you are concerned about your family, your job, or even going to jail. The impact of a criminal conviction, even a misdemeanor charge, can lead to jail time, fines and other court obligations. Felony crimes can carry much higher penalties. You have probably been searching the internet for information or asking your friends and family for advice—you may very well be scared. Having to defend a criminal case in Texas can be quite serious and sometimes people have no idea how serious it is until it is too late.
Long term consequences of a criminal conviction can affect your future employment, your admissibility to certain schools and even your ability to obtain certain professional licenses. But fortunately, being charged with a criminal offense is not the same thing as being convicted of a crime. If you are being investigated or have been arrested, we can help you. We believe in working hard to protect our clients' rights at every step. Your case will be thoroughly investigated and we will provide an action plan based on the particular circumstances. We believe in the presumption that our client is innocent until proven guilty and work hard to get you the best possible results. We are aggressive attorneys dedicated to your defense.
