Criminal Defense

There are two situations in which people find themselves if they have been arrested; I am not guilty and I want to clear my name or I made a mistake, how do I fix this.  We can help in both situations. We fight to protect you in a system that wants a conviction. Fighting criminal cases in court is what we do, we challenge the prosecution on their evidence against you, we challenge witnesses on the stand and we cross examine police officers testifying against you. Regardless of your guilt or innocence, we fight to get you the best possible outcome.


Felonies and Misdemeanors:
Texas has two main categories for crimes: Felonies and Misdemeanors. Each of these categories has several sub-categories.

Misdemeanors are classified according to the relative seriousness of the offense into three categories:
Class A misdemeanors;
Class B misdemeanors;
Class C misdemeanors.

Class A misdemeanors are punishable by a fine not to exceed $4,000; confinement in jail for a term not to exceed one year; or both a fine and jail time.


Class B misdemeanors are punishable by a fine not to exceed $2,000; confinement in jail for a term not to exceed 180 days; OR both a fine and jail time.


Class C misdemeanors are the lowest level of crime. This is the category traffic tickets fall under. These are punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.


Felonies are classified according to the relative seriousness of the offense into five categories:
capital felonies;
felonies of the first degree;
felonies of the second degree;
felonies of the third degree; and
state jail felonies.

Capital felonies are the highest level of crime. These crimes are punishable by imprisonment for life without parole or by death. This is reserved only for certain types of murder. A first degree felony is punishable by imprisonment for life or for any term of not more than 99 years or less than 5 years. In addition to imprisonment, a felony of the first degree may be punished by a fine not to exceed $10,000.


A second degree felony is punishable by imprisonment for not more than 20 years or less than 2 years. In addition to imprisonment, a felony of the second degree may be punished by a fine not to exceed $10,000.
A third degree felony is punishable by imprisonment for not more than 10 years or less than 2 years. In addition to imprisonment, a felony of the third degree may be punished by a fine not to exceed $10,000.
A state jail felony is punishable by confinement in a state jail for not more than two years or less than 180 days. In addition to confinement, a state jail felony may be punished by a fine not to exceed $10,000.
