Assault & Domestic Family Violence
The most common misconception people have about domestic family violence
is that your partner/spouse/girlfriend has authority to drop charges when
emotions cool. The reality is that once assault charges are filed by the
State, no one but the State can decide whether charges are dismissed.
The consequences of a domestic family violence conviction can be severe
because the charge could go on your permanent record, and you could face
possible jail time. There are many opportunities in domestic family violence
cases for an experienced lawyer to negotiate for a better outcome/resolution.

Drug offenses are serious crimes and will jeopardize your freedom. Since
Texas is known for having harsh penalties for drug convictions, felony
drug offense convictions could come with a jail sentences and other harsh
punishments. Like other crimes, the severity of punishments often depends
on the type of drug and quantity or amount of the drug involved.
No matter what evidence the police or the prosecutors have, you should
consult with a defense attorney so he or she can carefully investigate
the crime and the procedures to make sure your rights are protected.
In Texas, DWI is a criminal offense that prohibits a person from driving
or operating a motor vehicle in a public place while intoxicated.
Texas law defines intoxication as:
- When a person uses an alcoholic beverage, drug, controlled substance, or

ability to safely operate a motorized vehicle
- A person’s blood alcohol concentration is more than 0.08 of the body
Our DWI defense attorneys can investigate every aspect of your case with
the ultimate goal of keeping your record clean.

to see whether:
- There was a probable cause or a valid reason for initially stopping your vehicle
- There was sufficient evidence for the police officer to investigate you
for a possible DWI

and in accordance with Texas law

Any form of human sexual behavior that is prohibited by law is considered
a sex crime, and when such an offense is committed, the person will be

activity involving a minor, indecent exposure, or exhibitionism.
Examples of sex crimes under Texas law include:

If you or a loved one is facing sex crime accusations or charges, early
intervention by an experienced criminal defense attorney is critical to
assure the best outcome.
