Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

What a Criminal Defense Lawyer Does

Criminal defense lawyers serve a vital role in our judicial system by providing a legal defense to those who have been accused of a crime. 

No matter the charges facing you, the constitution protects your right to fair trial in a court of law. Read on to find out what a criminal defense lawyer can do for you. 

Crimes for Which a Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Help

One of the underlying principles in the American justice system is the right to a fair trial and the right to legal defense. This means that, regardless of the charges brought against a defendant, they are entitled to the help of a criminal defense lawyer who can defend their case. 

In Texas, some of the common crimes for which a lawyer can provide a criminal defense include the following: 

  • Traffic violations/DWIs — Although minor moving violations such as speeding could mean a punishment as light as a few points on your license, others such as DWIs or reckless driving could mean legal and/or professional repercussions. 
  • Drug charges, including possession, distribution, or manufacturing — Texas takes the issue of drug control seriously, which means you’ll need a solid legal defense even for charges such as marijuana possession.
  • Sex crimes — A sex crime conviction could have a devestating impact on your freedom and future. Speak with a criminal defense attorney before it’s too late. 
  • HomicideA charge as serious as homicide requires a rigorous legal defense. 
  • Domestic abuse — This crime falls under the umbrella of non-expungeable offenses in the state of Texas, so getting an acquittal will be vital in order to protect your future. 

How an Attorney Can Defend You

An experienced criminal defense attorney will take care of all evidence collection and secure depositions from any witnesses to the alleged crime, allowing you to focus on leading your life as normally as possible. 

In any criminal trial, it’s up to the prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty of the crime for which you are tried. A criminal defense lawyer, therefore, can work to cast doubt on prosecution’s claims in your defense. 

Sometimes, there are other problems with arrest procedure that could lead to your case being thrown out. An officer arresting you without reading your rights or without probable cause could be cause for having your case dismissed.

An experienced criminal defense attorney knows what to look for and could help build a defense that leads to case dismissal or acquittal.

Case Expungement: The Role of a Lawyer

Although a criminal defense lawyer isn’t always needed when applying for an expungement, it’s likely they could help streamline the process. 

If your case was previously dismissed or acquitted, a defense attorney could help you clear it from your record permanently. In other cases, a lawyer might be able to help you seal the record in order to protect your professional and personal reputation.
