We Can Help You Fight to Minimize the Impact of a Criminal Conviction
Being arrested for a crime might be embarrassing and stressful. It might also derail your personal, professional, and social life. When you are arrested, you should take steps to protect and preserve your good name as soon as possible.

Our team has familiarity with Texas law that helps us work with you to negotiate pleas and sentence reductions that give you a chance to start over.
When criminal convictions incur financial penalties, it might create a financial challenge that affects your entire family. In addition, if conviction leads to incarceration or imprisonment, it separates you from society and your family. According to the Texas Politics Project, possible criminal and financial penalties in Cedar Hill include:
- First-degree felony: Possible $10,000 fine, plus up to 99 years in prison
- Second-degree felony: Possible $10,000 fine, plus up to 20 years in prison
- Third-degree felony: Possible $10,000 fine, plus up to 10 years in prison
- State jail felony: Possible $10,000 fine, plus up to 2 years of incarceration

Incarceration or imprisonment may be difficult to cope with mentally and emotionally and might have a similar negative impact on your family and friends. The forced separation might also be difficult to explain to young children or on a future resume. Our criminal defense team helps you limit this societal impact of a conviction.
The sooner you put our team to work for you, the more time we have to investigate your arrest and ward off the damage of a conviction. Potential employers and landlords may request background checks that uncover a previous conviction. In addition, a criminal conviction may put you in an uncomfortable position where you are forced to:
- Explain gaps in your resume
- Explain blemishes on a background check
- Limit your housing choices
- Limit your higher education options
In addition, some criminal convictions might create social stigmas that make everyday and community life difficult. When you are ready to get the ardent defense you deserve and are entitled to, a Cedar Hill criminal defense lawyer at the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg can get to work for you.
