Criminal Defense Attorney in Harris County
20+ Years of Experience
If you are currently facing a criminal charge, it can feel like there is no hope in sight. Whether you have been accused of a misdemeanor or a felony in the state of Texas, receiving a guilty verdict will have extreme consequences on your rights and your liberties, not only affecting you in the short run, but long into the future as well.
Although it depends on the exact nature and type of crime, a conviction often leads to extensive periods of jail time or imprisonment. You and your family will be forced to pay exorbitant fines and high court fees, and potentially repercussive costs as well, which can reduce all of your life savings in a few months.

Long-Term Effects of a Conviction
It is crucial that you understand that being convicted is a serious matter which can have devastating consequences for your future. You will need to undergo parole and probation and will likely need to take mandatory counseling and rehabilitative classes that will slow your process of getting back to your life. Once you are able to finally join society again, you will forever have a stained record that will bar you from getting a loan or a mortgage, disqualify you from jobs, and even take away your voting rights.
