Knowledgeable Criminal Law Lawyers Providing A Strong Defense

It cannot be denied that sometimes bad things happen to good people, and even for the innocent citizen, encounters with law enforcement can be intimidating.

Texas State has some of the nation’s strictest laws against drunk driving. Drivers pulled over on Houston’s roads or highways and arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI), driving while ability impaired (DWAI) or aggravated driving while intoxicated (AGWI) could end up facing heavy fines and surcharges, higher insurance premiums, license suspension or revocations or imprisonment.

There may be a mandatory enrollment in a Drunk Driver Program and attendance at a Victim Impact Panel. Offenders may even be forced to install costly and embarrassing ignition interlock devices (IID) in any vehicle they own or use at their own expense.

Robbery & Assault

Violent crimes, such as murder, domestic violence, criminal possession of a weapon, hate crimes and assault, carry severe consequences. People convicted of any of these offenses could face imprisonment, fines; loss of child custody or visitation rights, and community service.

​You are innocent until proven guilty. We believe that. We want to listen to your story and fight for your vindication. People should be cautious about making statements to law enforcement officers because their statements can be twisted to be used against them. Before saying anything, consult with a lawyer.

Drug Possession ​

​Being in possession of an illegal substance is a serious crime in Texas. Anyone caught handling or harboring illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia (e.g. water pipes, bongs), chemicals (e.g. dilutents, dilutants, adulterants) or apparatus (e.g. vials, scales) used for the manufacturing, distribution, sale or ingestion of controlled substances could face severe penalties. Penalties could include a prison sentence, a driver’s license suspension or revocation, probation, fines, drug testing, and forced registration as a narcotics offender.
