Useful Information About Your Criminal Process

If a Law Enforcement Official Asks Me Questions, Do I Have to Answer?

Absolutely not. It is most important that you remain silent until you have your Frisco criminal defense attorney with you. You do not have to talk to law enforcement or answer their questions and anything you say can be used against you.

Should I Hire an Attorney if I Suspect I Am Under Investigation?

The sooner you hire an attorney, the better. Even if you have not been arrested or charged with a crime, it is highly advisable that you hire a lawyer if you have reason to believe that you are under investigation so that we can build a case in your defense.

What Are the Penalties for Theft Crimes?

The exact penalty for a crime depends on the specific nature of the crime in question. For example, if you have shoplifted something of minor value, the penalties you face if convicted are far less for grand theft auto of a valuable vehicle.

What Happens if I Am Convicted of Domestic Violence?

If you are found guilty of family or domestic violence, the consequences can vary. In most cases, there will be a restraining order and you will lose your ability to see your children. You may also face jail time, depending on the severity of the incident.

What Is DWI & What Are the Penalties?

DWI, also known as driving while intoxicated is a very serious offense in Texas. Being charged with a DWI can lead to the suspension of your license, points on your license, jail time, heavy fines, and a permanent mark on your criminal record.
