Assault is a serious criminal offense charged when a person causes harm, threatens to cause harm, or causes threatening contact to another. Depending on the circumstances involved, accused offenders may also face more serious charges and heightened penalties, such as if the person has been accused of assault with a deadly weapon.

Domestic Violence
Domestic violence charges can create extensive damage to an individual’s personal well-being and reputation. Matters often complicated by emotions and high tension, domestic violence cases require the attention of diligent and experienced legal professionals.

Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of a controlled substance is a crime that packs devastating and far-reaching criminal penalties. From large fines and possible terms of imprisonment to license suspensions and revocations, anyone accused of this crime should obtain counsel immediately.

Drug Crimes
Local and federal law enforcement agencies work in collaboration to increase arrests and convictions of people who are accused of committing drug crimes. If you or your loved one stands accused of simple possession, sales or trafficking of marijuana, cocaine or any other controlled substance, retaining legal aid should be a priority.

Do you have a criminal record? Find out if you qualify for expungement, which is the legal process that can seal your criminal record from the eyes of future employers, colleges, credit card companies, lenders and others.

Federal Crimes
Crimes that explicitly violate federal legislation can be prosecuted as a federal offense. As these charges are often among the most serious allegations one can face, obtaining an experienced criminal defense lawyer familiar with the federal court system is vital to the outcome of your case.

Internet Crimes
Technology has revolutionized the way people commit crimes. It has also revolutionized the ways law enforcement agencies and prosecutors arrest, prosecute, and convict cyber-crime offenders. Whether you face internet sex crime allegations or federal internet crime charges, you need representation.

Criminal investigations against people suspected or accused of a crime can be invasive, tough, and potentially ruinous to one’s reputation. Our Houston criminal defense team protects the rights of clients under any investigation, including sex crime investigations and federal investigations.

Juvenile Crimes
When your son or daughter faces juvenile crime allegations, they risk the consequence of extensive limitations and restrictions at a time when they should be preparing to explore new opportunities. Protect their future by retaining the assistance of a proven and passionate criminal defense lawyer.

Probation Violations
Most people who have been convicted of a criminal offense are required by law to comply with the terms and conditions of probation. Committing another crime, testing positive for a controlled substance, and other actions can result in probation violations and possible terms of imprisonment.

Sex Crimes
Among the most difficult criminal allegations one can face, sex crime charges can devastate the lives of individuals and families. Whether you or your loved one is facing allegations for sexual assault, prostitution, child pornography, or rape, you need an aggressive lawyer to fight for your rights and future.

Theft Crimes
Theft crimes can pose serious criminal penalties and repercussions that can forever alter the lives of convicted offenders. Our firm vigorously represents clients charged with theft crimes such as shoplifting, robbery, and burglary, among others.

White Collar Crimes
Considered some of the most relentless and damaging criminal offenses, white collar crimes encompass a number of non-violent, financially motivated offenses. These can include charges for embezzlement, extortion, money laundering, fraud, tax evasion, and Ponzi schemes.

Violent Crimes
Violent crimes subject accused offenders to long terms of imprisonment and life-altering repercussions. If you or your loved one is facing allegations for any types of violent crime, you should obtain legal representation as soon as possible.
