Legal Help With Criminal Matters in Fredericksburg, Texas

Criminal charges can range in severity depending on the laws that a person is accused of breaking and how any alleged victims were affected. Less serious offenses will often involve misdemeanor charges, and in these cases, a conviction may result in fines of a few thousand dollars and a jail sentence of up to one year. More serious crimes may involve felony charges, and a conviction can result in a jail sentence of more than one year and $10,000 or more in fines. Determining the appropriate defense strategy will depend on the specific charges, and we can help alleged offenders understand whether certain types of charges may be dismissed or reduced.

We provide representation for defendants who have been charged with multiple types of offenses, including:

  • DWI - Drunk or intoxicated driving may involve situations where a driver's ability to drive safely is affected due to the use of alcohol, controlled substances, prescription drugs, or any combination of these or other substances. A first-time DWI conviction is usually charged as a misdemeanor. In these cases, a person will be required to serve a minimum prison sentence of three days, and they will also face consequences such as fines and the suspension of their driver's license. More severe charges will apply for a second or third DWI conviction or in cases where intoxicated driving caused serious injuries or death.
  • Drug crimes - Cases related to controlled substances will often lead to felony charges, especially for "hard drugs" such as heroin, methamphetamines, or cocaine. A person may be charged with drug possession based on substances found by police officers during a search of their person, home, or vehicle. Cases involving large amounts of controlled substances may lead to more serious charges of drug distribution or manufacturing.
  • Sexual offenses - Crimes of a sexual nature can have significant criminal consequences, and a conviction may cause a person to become a registered sex offender. These accusations can also affect a person's reputation and relationships with family and friends. We can help determine how to respond to charges of sexual assault, sexual abuse, indecency with a child, possession of child pornography, prostitution, indecent exposure, or other sex crimes.
  • Domestic violence - A person may face family violence charges if they are accused of assaulting, threatening, or otherwise harming a member of their family or a person who lives in their household.
