Criminal justice Law

I started my career in criminal law and continue to specialize as a criminal defense attorney to this day. Some of the most common types of cases that I try include:

  • DWI/Intoxication Offense. After a DWI offense, it’s time to get your life back together, whether it means having the DWI charges dropped or having your sentence reduced. As an experienced DWI lawyer, I understand your legal options after a DWI, and I can help you navigate the complicated legal system to get your license back or the case dismissed.
  •  DWI Non-Disclosures. Keep your DWI disclosed from potential employers and other agencies to move forward with your life. If you’ve been convicted of a DWI, take action now by hiring an experienced lawyer to help you navigate the law.
  •  Weapons Cases. Winning a weapons case can be tough, with strict mandatory minimums and fines. As a gun crimes lawyer, I’ve helped clients facing charges such as aggravated assault with a firearm and gun trafficking. For an effective defense in weapons cases, it’s important that you seek appropriate and experienced counsel as soon as possible to achieve the best outcomes.
  • Online Solicitation. Online solicitation charges are serious. To combat these charges, you need an expert criminal defense lawyer with experience in online solicitation cases. He or she needs to understand both local and federal laws to succeed.
  • Possession of Pornography. Facing possession of pornography charges? An experienced criminal defense lawyer can reduce your chance of being designated as a sexual offender.
  • Drug Offenses. There are a wide range of criminal drug offenses, from misdemeanor possession to felony drug trafficking. You need to choose a lawyer with experience in all aspects of trying drug offenses cases.
  • Aggravated Assault & Battery. Assault and battery becomes “aggravated” when a weapon is involved or when serious bodily harm is inflicted. Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is classified as a first-degree felony where a person sustains serious bodily injury. This degree of assault and battery brings with it more serious consequences, making legal representation even more necessary to protect your rights.
  • Juvenile Law. If your child is facing criminal charges, it’s best to hire a criminal defense attorney to help navigate the legal system. Young people make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean they should spend the rest of their life paying for a single act of juvenile delinquency.
  • Sex Offenses. Being accused of a sex crime in Texas can have a lasting impact on a person’s life. Sex offenses have a stigma attached to them that is particularly devastating—and even moreso when you’re wrongly accused. Make sure you have an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you navigate the law.
  • Expunctions and Non-Disclosures. Dealing with criminal charges or convictions can be daunting without the right help. Many people experience problems that lead to their first conviction and worry about how it will affect their lives. If you have a first time conviction, there are legal proceedings like expunctions and non-disclosures that can help you.
  • Grand Theft. Grand theft is a term used to describe theft involving cash or goods valuing more than $500. A situation is considered theft if property was taken without the owner’s consent or property was stolen and then given to someone else who had knowledge that it was stolen. Whether you’ve made a mistake or you’re wrongly accused, navigate grand theft charges with a skilled criminal defense attorney.
  • Extortion. Extortion is a serious crime and being convicted of extortion can lead to penalties ranging from fines and restitution to time in prison. Even if you avoid a prison sentence, having an extortion conviction on your record can have a lasting impact on your life, so it’s important to hire an extortion defense attorney who will fight for your rights in court.

Family Law

Family law cases are among the most emotional and significant legal cases in the court system today. When it comes to protecting your family, you need a family law attorney that you can trust.

  • Divorce. No matter what ended the marriage, you want a divorce lawyer that will stand up for your rights.
  • Child Custody. Whether you seek full custody or simply need to create a child custody agreement after a divorce, you need someone who will represent your side well without damaging the relationship that you have with your kids.
  • Visitation & Parental Relocation. Visitation and parental relocation are aspects of family law that dictate what the parents involved in a custody arrangement are allowed to do and where they are allowed to live. When you are sharing custody of a child or multiple children, you don’t have complete freedom to move around as you please.
  • Domestic Violence. Domestic violence charges can impact your life forever. Choose a domestic violence attorney that will listen to your side and represent you in court.
  • Alimony & Spousal Support. Spousal support or alimony refers to money one spouse pays to the other during or after a divorce. It is often one of the biggest points of contention in divorce proceedings. The purpose of alimony is to relieve the financial burden the divorce may have on one spouse over the other.
