What's At stake in a texas criminal case?

If you’ve been charged with a crime in Texas, you probably know that you may be facing jail time and/or fines. Depending on the nature of the charges, some of the other consequences may be:  

  • Probation 
  • Community service 
  • Mandatory counseling and drug or alcohol treatment, or other programs 
  • Suspension or revocation of your driver’s license 
  • Registration requirements

It’s also important to note that not all consequences of a criminal conviction are imposed by the court. For example, certain criminal convictions may impact your access to housing, eligibility for federal financial aid for higher education and even employment opportunities. At Quinones & Associates, we understand that these indirect consequences can have a serious impact on your future. We’re committed to giving you the most comprehensive information possible about your options and the direct and indirect consequences of a conviction so that you can make the best decision for yourself and your family.  

Our criminal defense representation

Our criminal defense lawyers handle a wide range of charges, with a focus on complex cases in both state and federal courts. That may mean a serious felony case, a murder charge, or a misdemeanor case with complex facts or sophisticated legal arguments.  

The case types that we handle include:  

  • Homicide 
  • Theft 
  • Drug possession 
  • Assault/family violence 
  • White-collar crime  
  • Robbery 
  • Burglary 
  • Sex crimes  
  • DWI 
  • Juvenile offenses 
  • Probation violations 
  • Parole violations 
  • Weapons charges  
  • Expungement/sealing of criminal records 

 

Whatever the charges, we’ll fight hard for you. That starts with getting to know you, listening to your story and understanding your priorities. Then, we’ll assess the prosecution’s case against you, conduct our own investigation, and identify any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and evidence that work in your favor.  

We’re prepared to fight your case on multiple fronts, such as:  

  • Filing and arguing pretrial motions to suppress evidence that may have been illegally obtained, excluding confessions that may have been involuntary, and working on other issues that may weaken or destroy the prosecution’s case 
  • Negotiating with the prosecution for the most favorable plea agreement possible, if that is in your best interest 
  • Preparing for trial and arguing your case to a jury, if that’s the best approach for you
