What Makes a Good Texas Criminal Attorney?

Criminal Defense

 

When it comes time to hire a private criminal attorney in Texas, there is no room for messing around. Even misdemeanor charges can result in lost wages, jail time, and a stain on your criminal record.

Convictions add up, and they will only extend the amount of penalties if you are found guilty on subsequent charges. Defendants must fight back with aggressive strategies and the best help that they can get.

Unfortunately, not all Texas defense lawyers will be able to get you the outcome that you are looking for. The time you put into doing research and consulting with different attorneys is an investment in your future, so don’t take the process lightly.

Differences Between Restraining and Protective Orders in Texas

Protective Orders | Restraining Orders

Most people tend to use the terms “restraining order” and “protective order” to mean the same thing. Which makes sense. After all, both can be used to order one party not to contact or go near another, or near their family, home, work, or children’s school(s).

However, this is where their similarities end.

In this post, we’re going to examine the difference between restraining and protective orders in terms of what they’re designed to do, the language and provisions they typically contain, how they are legally enforced, and the consequences of violating either.

Note that every situation is unique, and based on your needs, either your experienced divorce attorney or Fort Worth criminal defense lawyer will be able to provide [...]

How Texans Should Respond to Accusations of Shoplifting

Shoplifting/Retail Theft | Theft Crimes

Being accused of shoplifting can be all kinds of things: embarrassing, scary, frustrating, insulting, confusing. No matter what you feel, though, you absolutely need to take the situation seriously.

This post outlines some of those rights and offers examples of what you can do if you suddenly find yourself accused.

How Can Breath Tests Be Wrong in Texas? Let’s Count the Ways

Drunk Driving | DWI

At first glance, Texas DWI cases appear to be pretty cut and dried. If you get tested and have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or above, you broke the law because you were too intoxicated to drive. You will be tried, and you will be convicted.

Right?

Maybe. Maybe not.

You might have read stories or heard about people who were pulled over for DWI, tested, and arrested – even though they were perfectly sober. How is this possible?

The consequences of a DWI in Texas are serious, so a false accusation is not something you want to ignore or let pass. Defendants falsely accused of DWI, even with an incriminating BAC, need to fight back.

What Makes Drug Trafficking in Texas into a Federal Case?

Drug Crimes | Drug Trafficking

Because any drug crime can technically be made into a federal case, it’s important to know when the federal government is interested making it one.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at some examples of trafficking and go over the reasons why feds have taken an interest in these specific cases.

Our goal is to help you understand why your drug trafficking offense may be charged at the federal level instead of at the state level here in Texas – but first we’re going to talk a bit about trafficking in general.

Defining Drug Trafficking – in Texas and Beyond

Drug trafficking is most simply defined as the crime of unlawful importing, transporting, or selling of illegal [...]
