Why a Criminal Attorney?
Why You Should Involve a San Antonio Criminal Attorney
If you've been arrested or are involved in a criminal matter of any kind, your future is on the line. One of the most important steps you can take is to consult an attorney regarding your case. Although you may "only" be under investigation by law enforcement at this time, that means that you are also currently at risk of facing arrest, formal criminal charges and criminal court proceedings. Whether this is your first DWI arrest or you are being charged with domestic violence or even murder, you will need a competent San Antonio criminal attorney at your side to defend your rights.
Virtually any criminal offense may be punishable by incarceration in county jail or state prison, along with fines, community service, driver's license suspension, and the possibility of mandatory sex offender registration or drug/alcohol treatment. The severity of these penalties will depend on the unique offense as well as the circumstances surrounding your case, including your past criminal record, if any. You may also suffer from a damaged reputation and limited opportunities if you have a misdemeanor or felony conviction on your record.
Facing Criminal Charges? You Can Reach a Brighter Future
An attorney can take immediate action to protect you from a conviction. This will include representing you during police questioning and in any and all court proceedings. This will also include negotiating with the prosecution to minimize your charges or attempt to have them dismissed altogether. In building an aggressive defense strategy tailored to your unique case, a criminal attorney at our San Antonio law firm can work to help you avoid a conviction altogether.
