Criminal Defense Representation

We will defend you if you have been charged with a criminal offense in Texas. Let us fight for your freedom!
The spirit behind the law – Texas Criminal Code – is to protect the safely, welfare, and well-being of its Citizens by criminalizing and penalizing certain conduct that has been deemed to be harmful, dangerous, and in violation of basic principles of common standards and societal values Codified in to law by the Citizens of the Commonwealth through the General Assembly.

“You may have defenses available to the criminal charges that may result in a not guilty verdict or the charges entirely being dismissed!”

The law can be interpreted, enforced, and understood differently from person to another. An experienced attorney is able to use his knowledge, skills, and previous experience to determine the available defenses, present evidence to the contrary, bring to the court’s attention mitigating circumstance and other factors to defend your freedom and rights. As such there are numerous categories of violation that could result you with huge criminal fines, revocation of driving privileges and jail time.
