Criminal Defense

I'm happy to provide some quality care and counseling when it comes to family law, but for your criminal defense, I know first and foremost that a strong fighter is what you need.


Like family law, areas of criminal law can branch off into their own specific sub-categories. When you set up a consultation with me, here are a few things we can discuss in detail regarding your criminal charges:

  • Drug charges. Say your son or daughter is charged with possession of marijuana. Depending on the amount, 2 ounces for instance, we can talk about the criminal procedure including litigation or sentencing, the defendant's rights, juvenile delinquency, or even expungement eligibility. Drug manufacturing and drug trafficking may also be applicable in these cases.
  • DUI & DWI;  when it comes to driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated, there is much to know about when these charges may be considered a felony — as opposed to a misdemeanor.
  • Property crimes include theft, robbery (theft through physical force, such as with armed robbery), or burglary (breaking in with intent to commit a crime inside the building or property).
  • Fraud,  such as identity theft, is a serious offense, but I want to make sure you know as much about your case as possible before we go into litigation, if it comes to that.
  • Parole Cases. Maybe you're on a conditional release from prison. In this case, it's important you know not to sign anything stating you violated that parole without your lawyer present.  

We need to assess your options as soon as possible; there may be ways for us to get you the best outcome from the options that I'll provide to you.

I urge you to take a look at my case results if you want an idea of the kind of work we can do together, and the fair outcomes that I have been able to get for my clients in Texas. In the meantime, it may benefit you to learn a little more about Texas criminal laws. Here are some examples of what to know about laws in our state:

  • Assault. In Texas, assault (an attempt at bodily harm in cases of assault or actual bodily harm) charged as "Assault," has many classifications that differentiate it among the nature of your specific crime.
  • Drug Charges. Unfortunately, Texas has harsh laws against drug possession, and some of them are specific to marijuana. For example, possession of marijuana may be considered a Class B misdemeanor and carry a sentence of up to 180 days in jail and/or a $2,000 fine.
  • Sexual assault. such as rape. This is usually a 2nd degree felony in the Lone Star State and can carry a sentence of 2 to 20 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.

One thing that really makes a difference in your case is your involvement. It's extremely important that you feel you have a hand in your future — that you have an invested interest in how things turn out for you and possibly your family. Even though I'll be on your side, I can't stress enough that you need to feel like you're on your side as well.
