Need Criminal Representation?
In Texas, law enforcement is very strict when it comes to drug crimes. A conviction of a drug crime in Texas can carry with it some severe penalties. There are several factors that could lead to your case being dismissed. For example if the search conducted by the police was illegal than any evidence (drugs) that was found as a result of that search would be inadmissible.
Without an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side you may never know if your charges could have been dismissed. If you have been charged with a drug crime it is to your advantage to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to handle your case.
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
Being charged with Driving While intoxicated (DWI) in Texas is very serious. The maze of complicated paperwork and hearings alone can be very overwhelming. For most people getting a DWI is not a normal occurrence, but with the help of an experienced lawyer you don’t have to face the prosecution alone.
One of the most common questions from our clients who have been charged with DWI is when will they get their license back. The good news is that most people are eligible for what is referred to as an occupational license. An Occupational license allows a person with a suspended license to travel to and from work/school.
If you have been charged with a DWI, you need to act quickly to protect your freedom and your driver’s license.
The Texas Penal Code states that no physical harm is involved in an assault. The most common misconception is that a person cannot be charged with assault unless they physically harm another. Under Texas law a person can be charged with assault by simply touching a person or by making threats against another person. An assault charge on a person’s record can have an adverse effect on school and career options. Consult an experienced attorney at Giddens & Burns today.
