San Antonio Criminal Lawyer Provides Vigorous Defense

Accomplished Texas criminal law attorney handles your felony or misdemeanor charge

When your freedom, your reputation and your career are on the line, it’s vitally important to retain a lawyer with the experience and determination to assert your rights. With Tylden Shaeffer, Attorney at Law, P.C., in San Antonio, you get a board-certified specialist in criminal law who has defended Texans against a range of charges for 30 years. My previous career as a prosecutor means I am able to provide clients with a distinct advantage by understanding how the opposition works. Whether you’re charged with a felony or misdemeanor, you have my full commitment to craft an appropriate strategy and work aggressively for a positive outcome, whether that’s an acquittal, dismissal, or reduction in charges.

Texas defense lawyer asserts your rights against criminal prosecution

Law enforcement in Central Texas is aggressive in prosecuting both felony and misdemeanor offenses, so the attorney you choose must be able to match their skill and determination. Whether you face state or federal charges, you can have confidence in my ability to protect your rights and work toward a favorable resolution of your case. Matters that I regularly address in my practice include:

  • DWI — If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated, I can question law enforcement practices and test results to limit the consequences of your DWI.
  • Domestic violence — I represent Texans accused of domestic violence to help them resolve conflicts productively for their sake and the sake of their families.
  • Drug crimes — In state and federal court, I represent clients accused of various drug crimes, ranging from simple possession of marijuana to trafficking in illicit drugs.
  • Sexual offenses — An arrest for a sexual offense can irreparably damage your reputation as well as place you in jeopardy of extended jail time. I defend clients accused of sexual offenses ranging from rape to possession of child pornography.
  • Violent crimes — Offenses that involve violence against another person have severe penalties attached. In my practice, I have defended clients accused of simple assault all the way up to capital murder. Convictions for violent crimes impose a stigma that can make life difficult even after time served, so I’m determined to mount the strongest defense possible to your charges.
  • White collar crime — Nonviolent economic offenses, known as white collar crime, include embezzlement, fraud and money laundering. If you face any of these charges, I will work to provide a defense that challenges state or federal prosecutions.

For clients charged with these or other offenses, I offer a free consultation to explain the full implications of the charges against you and present your options. You can get to know me on a personal level to see if my background and approach inspire the confidence you need to get through this ordeal. If you agree I’m the attorney to manage your case, you get my complete commitment to work tirelessly on your behalf.

Skilled lawyer provides effective representation for post-trial matters

Even after a case has been adjudicated, there may still be matters to address. If you are acquitted, or charges are dismissed, there is the matter of your arrest record. I often help clients with the sealing and expungement of records, so an arrest does not continue to haunt them. I also represent clients in probationary matters, whether they seek an early end to probation or defense against alleged violations.
