Misdemeanor Defense

Misdemeanor charges must be taken seriously. Conviction for a misdemeanor, even some traffic offenses, has serious and long-term consequences, including:

  • Establishment of a Criminal Record
  • Large Fines
  • Increased Insurance Premiums
  • Probation
  • Jail Time

We regularly represent clients charged with misdemeanors involving traffic offenses, drug charges, disorderly conduct, minor assault, and theft. If you are guilty of the offense charged, and you are a first-time offender, we can explore several options for keeping a conviction off your record and avoiding serious consequences. However, if you go to court without a lawyer and simply plead guilty, there is a wide range of consequences that the court might see fit to impose upon you.

If you are convicted of drunk driving (DWI), you face additional penalties, including:

  • Loss of Your Driver’s License
  • Court-Ordered Alcohol Education & Treatment

Police, prosecutors, and judges throughout Texas do not consider drunk driving to be a minor traffic offense; they consider it to be a serious criminal charge. You need a serious and experienced DWI attorney to represent you.

Misdemeanors and traffic offense charges are just like any other criminal case in that the State is required to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. We hold the State to their burden, while protecting your rights.
