Galveston County Criminal Lawyer

Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney Fights for Your Rights

If you are charged with a crime, it is critical to your future liberty that you hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to develop an effective legal defense strategy for your case.

When you are facing a criminal charge, you are innocent until you are proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Your criminal defense strategy is what can show the court that you are not guilty of your charge, which will lead to your charge being dismissed and leaving the courtroom a free, innocent individual. In some cases, a successful legal defense results in a charge being downgraded to a lesser version of the original charge, protecting the defendant from facing the steeper penalties he or she initially faced.

The penalties for a conviction depend on a variety of factors, such as the type of charge you are facing, your previous criminal record, and whether there are any aggravating or mitigating factors present in your case. Criminal penalties you can face for a conviction include:

  • Jail time;
  • Restitution;
  • Fines;
  • Community service;
  • Probation; and
  • Loss of certain rights and privileges, such as the right to own a firearm and the privilege of driving.

Why You Need an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

Although you can represent your own case in court, it is not recommended. You do not have the understanding of criminal law that an experienced lawyer has, nor do you have experience interacting with the court and the criminal justice system the way your lawyer does.

From the moment you are arrested, your lawyer is your advocate. He or she can coach you through interactions with law enforcement, help you avoid incriminating yourself or waiving any of your constitutional rights, help you prepare for your deposition and other stages of your trial, and work with you to obtain and use useful evidence to demonstrate your innocence. If the prosecutor offers you a plea deal, your lawyer can also help you evaluate the deal and determine if accepting it is the best course of action for your case. Depending on your circumstances, your lawyer might also be able to help you get into a pretrial intervention program instead of facing a criminal sentence.
