I've been arrested. What happens next?

Once you have been arrested, you will be fingerprinted, booked, and placed in police custody. You will be brought before a judge within 48 hours of your arrest. There, the judge will announce the charges against you, inform you of your rights, determine whether there is probable cause to continue holding you in custody, and set a bail amount. Regardless of whatever stage you are in your criminal process, it is never too soon or too late to retain highly skilled legal counsel to protect your rights! If you have reason to believe you are under investigation or have already been arrested, don't wait a moment longer to contact a highly skilled attorney.

I have only been charged with a misdemeanor. Do I need legal counsel?

Yes! Any charge, no matter how minor it seems at the time, can create a criminal record. All convictions can have significant and long-lasting ramifications that may impact your ability to legally own a firearm, attain employment, or further your education. If you are facing any criminal charge, I can provide the assertive representation you need to lessen its potential impact as much as possible.

I have been charged and convicted. Do I have any hope?

Our nation was founded on the belief that all individuals have the right to fight for justice. As a former prosecutor and now dedicated criminal defense lawyer, I can tell you mistakes happen frequently and may occur during any stage of a judicial proceeding. It is never too late to assert your constitutional rights. As a seasoned Katy criminal defense attorney, I am extensively experienced in delivering the unwavering advocacy required to pursue a legal challenge to an unjust conviction, including:

Does the professional background of my attorney matter?

Additionally, you deserve a determined and dynamic advocate, fully prepared to go to battle for as long as it may take.

If there is a flaw or weakness, I can find it and use it to your advantage. I have extensive trial experience, including numerous successful cases before courts of appeals. My background provides me with strategic insight into what options are available if a complete dismissal proves not to be possible. As your Katy criminal defense lawyer, I can deliver the tenacious advocacy you need to negotiate a favorable plea bargain.
