You Have Rights
Once you are accused of a crime, it is up to the prosecution to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that you are guilty. Until that time, no matter what anyone says about you or what the police charge you with, you are presumed innocent, as codified in Texas Penal Code § 2.01.
As the accused, you have the right to hire a lawyer to build a defense on your behalf. Your lawyer can defend you against all sorts of charges, including but not limited to:
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Family violence and domestic abuse
- Weapons possession
- Drug possession and other drug crimes
The Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg is ready and willing to help you with any of the above charges. Let us assign a Midlothian criminal defense lawyer to your case so that you do not have to take on the burden of building a legal defense by yourself. Give us a call at
Even One Conviction Can Upend Your Life
The penalties you face if you are convicted depend on what type of crime you are charged with and whether or not you have any prior convictions for similar crimes. The more prior offenses you have, the more burdensome the penalties may be.
For example, crimes like certain DWI charges and minor drug offenses are categorized as Class B misdemeanors. Such crimes, per the Texas Politics Project, carry penalties like:
- A maximum prison term of 6 months
- A maximum fine of $2,000
Compare that with an aggravated assault charge. This is a second-degree felony, a much more serious charge that carries penalties like:
- A maximum prison term of between 2 and 20 years
- A maximum fine of $10,000
Your case may be more complicated if you are facing multiple charges. For example, having an open container of alcohol in the car is an entirely separate charge from DWI or DUI. If you are convicted of both, you may face more stringent penalties.
Other Consequences of Conviction
If convicted of a crime, you stand to lose much more than time and money. Being sentenced to prison for an extended period of time may cost you your job. In DWI and DUI cases, you may have your driver’s license suspended for months or years, making it more difficult—and, potentially, more expensive—for you to travel to and from school or work.
In addition, certain types of convictions cannot be expunged from your criminal record, meaning that all future employers, landlords, and neighbors will be able to see your conviction. Finally, a criminal record may permanently cost you the ability to vote or to own a gun.
In short, a conviction is a serious matter, and you will want to do everything in your power to protect yourself from the consequences outlined above.

Let a Lawyer Protect Your Rights and Fight for You
While it is impossible to predict how your case will go, having a lawyer on your side to help you navigate the process can make things clearer and less confusing for you. It can also be much less scary and stressful to face criminal charges when you know that someone is out there fighting on your behalf.
An attorney can support you throughout your case by:
- Searching for evidence of your innocence: we will seek out and examine all available evidence, specifically looking for proof that you did not or could not have committed the crime you have been accused of.
- Searching for evidence of misconduct: police error and misconduct are sadly not as uncommon as they should be. If your case was marred by such an error, we will look for evidence to prove it.
- Seeking a reduction: we can negotiate with the judge to, for instance, get your charges reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor. You may then face fewer and lighter penalties.
- Seeking a dismissal: with sufficient evidence, we can argue that the charges against you be dropped altogether so that you can return to your normal life right away.
- Representing you in court: if your case ends up in court, we will handle everything, including the presentation of oral arguments and the questioning of witnesses.
- Giving you advice: it can be hard to know what to do or how to handle your case. Your lawyer will make sure you understand what is happening and help you make the best possible decisions.
