Texas law penalizes many different types of conduct. The potential punishment which one faces will depend on the nature of the offense, the defendant’s prior record, as well as other factors. It is important that you take the matter seriously regardless of whether you are charged with a felony or a misdemeanor. Common charges brought by a prosecutor include:

Such offenses may involve a lengthy prison sentence or, in extreme circumstances, the death penalty. Retaining an experienced attorney can be an important step towards making sure that your rights remain protected.

Dan devotes his practice to criminal defense and has done so throughout his career. Prior to an initial consultation he will typically review all public records to gain an understanding of the situation. He will then use the consultation to hear your side of the story and to help you understand what it is you should expect from the process. He will obtain discovery from the prosecution and conduct any necessary investigations. Should he believe that your rights were violated then he will file any necessary motions to throw out illegally-obtained evidence with the Court, and will require the prosecution to justify any detention, search and seizure at a hearing if necessary. If a favorable resolution cannot be reached by negotiation then Dan will ensure that your case is prepared for trial. He handles all matters in the office personally which means that he will be paying attention to each detail of your case. Do not risk your future to less-experienced counsel.
