A Criminal Conviction Might Tarnish Your Future
If an arrest leads to a conviction in Texas, you may be forced to spend time in jail or prison. In addition to separating you from your family and friends, a criminal conviction might also have negative repercussions even after your sentence is completed.
In their 2016 publication of NIJ Update, Catherine E. Forrest explored the collateral consequences of a criminal conviction, specifically on when ex-offenders try to reintegrate into society after release. According to Forrest, criminal convictions might restrict ex-offenders’ ability to:
- Own a firearm
- Interact with children
- Seek gainful employment
- Obtain public housing
- Obtain traditional housing
- Teach at specific education levels, e.g., college
Our team will fight hard to limit these negative effects. Our legal team might be able to negotiate a dismissal of the charges made against you or a reduction in their degree and severity. Our goal is to mitigate these damages and protect your future from being permanently stained.

How Our Team Fights for Your Freedom
A criminal charge can have short-term consequences, such as having to live with the embarrassment of an arrest and potentially missing days, weeks, or months of employment while awaiting bail.

Our legal team can listen to the details of your arrest, question the probable cause that led to your arrest, and determine if your rights were violated at any point. We might be able to identify leverage that may help us defend your case.
Our team takes every case we handle seriously. If you need help collecting evidence to support your case or building an argument to defend your claims, our team wants to help you.
