Criminal Defense: Protecting Your Rights
When you have been charged with a crime, things can feel overwhelming and you may not know where to turn next. The important thing to remember is that you have rights, and an experienced lawyer can ensure that your rights remain protected every step of the way.
I have been practicing law for more than 20 years, and I understand what is at stake when it comes to criminal charges. I will do everything I can to help minimize the potential consequences of criminal allegations. For a free initial consultation, call my law office in McKinney at 972-301-8324.
Building A Defense
A criminal charge involves much more than the possibility of heavy fines and/or jail time. A conviction will result in a record that will follow you for life, making it difficult to find employment and housing, and may disqualify you from receiving certain loans. With so much at stake, you should not take criminal charges lightly.
I handle a variety of criminal defense matters, including theft, assault, and possession of illegal drug cases. I am also a court-appointed lawyer on child protective services (CPS) cases and handle these privately. When you come to me, I’ll explain the process step-by-step, identify the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and let you know how things are likely to work out. I take pride in making my services affordable so that you do not have to mortgage your financial future to receive the quality legal defense that everyone deserves.
Expunctions And Non-Disclosures
It is important for your future to make sure your criminal mistakes can’t be seen when a potential employer runs a background check. You can’t even rent an apartment in most places if you have a Class B misdemeanor on your record. Some people don’t know that even if you get a deferred adjudication, a dismissal, or even a pre-trial diversion, you must go back and do civil paperwork to clear your arrest record.
