Charged with DWI?
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in the state of Texas has some very serious penalties. It is important to try and avoid conviction for a first offense if at all possible. Drunk driving attorney Scot Courtney will challenge every aspect of your arrest and work to keep your record clean.
Drug charges can range from misdemeanor possession to felony trafficking. Even the lightest charge should be taken very seriously. A Texas drug crime lawyer gives you an ally against a system that will seemingly do anything necessary to bring about the harshest penalty possible
The emotions that often fuel a domestic violence allegation can create a situation that won’t simply just go away. Once an arrest is made, the decision to press charges is in the hands of prosecutors, even if the alleged victim recants. A skilled Texas domestic violence lawyer is the answer.
Do You Have a Criminal Record?
Under certain circumstances, records of arrest and prosecution can be expunged. You may have had a criminal charge dismissed or were acquitted after a trial, only to find out that the public record of the criminal charge is still accessible and prevents you from gainful employment, housing, or other future opportunities. Legal action must be taken to “clear your record.” This is known as Expunction. We can help you through the process of clearing your name and removing public records that might do you harm.
Know Your Rights!
Your right to remain silent is an important one. It’s a mistake to think that your innocence alone is enough to protect you from a possible criminal conviction. By invoking the constitutional right to have a qualified criminal defense attorney by your side, it could be the difference between proving that innocence or having a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. Knowing ALL of your rights is critical. Visit our Citizen’s Rights section or contact us right away to speak with an experienced Texas criminal defense lawyer.
