Houston Misdemeanor Criminal Defense Attorney

Sugarland Misdemeanor Criminal Defense Lawyer

Texas Defense Lawyer for DWIs, Assaults, & More

While misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, they can still have a significant impact on the life of a person who is arrested and charged with a criminal offense. Misdemeanors in Texas can carry up to a year in jail, and a criminal conviction can close doors in your future. It is important not to take a misdemeanor charge too lightly. Our criminal defense attorneys can help protect your future by developing the best defense possible.

The Hatton Law Firm PLLC is experienced in defending those accused of misdemeanor offenses. We will examine the evidence in your case carefully to identify possible defenses and arguments. If you have been accused of drunk driving, drug possession, public intoxication, or another misdemeanor offense, we can offer you skilled representation by experienced attorneys.

DWI Defense Lawyers in Fort Bend County

DWI is one of the more common misdemeanors people in Texas are arrested for. While the case against you might appear airtight - particularly if you performed roadside sobriety tests or failed a chemical blood alcohol test - this perception can sometimes be off. We carefully examine the circumstances of a case and the procedures followed during testing to identify possible factors that could have influenced the results.

It is important to know that the consequences of a DWI can be serious. More bothersome than the potential jail time to many is the potential long-term loss of driving privileges. To protect your ability to continue driving during your daily life, it is important to take action to defend yourself with the help of a criminal defense lawyer.

Drug Possession & Paraphernalia Attorneys in the Houston Area

Drug offenses are taken seriously in Texas. We are also one of a falling number of states where marijuana is unavailable from legal sources except in extremely limited circumstances. It is unsurprising that a large portion of misdemeanor arrests relate to the possession of illicit substances or drug paraphernalia.

Many of those arrested for drug misdemeanors are not dangerous dealers or major manufacturers, but simply people who use drugs or are addicted to them. We understand how easily a person's life circumstances can lead to an arrest for possession of illicit substances.

We are experienced in using a variety of defense strategies in drug crime cases. In some cases, diversion programs that include treatment for addiction provide a good opportunity that will allow a person to receive help without suffering life-long criminal consequences. Our attorneys will closely review the facts of your case in order to prepare the defense plan that is most likely to offer you the greatest benefit.

Defense Lawyers for Various Misdemeanor Offenses

We understand how easily misdemeanor charges can come about. Your arrest may have come as a shock to you. You may have been enjoying a night out when you were arrested for public intoxication, or you may be facing simple assault charges after being involved in a bar fight. Harmless fun may not seem so harmless after a police officer identifies your actions as disorderly conduct.

It can be quite frightening to be arrested and charged with any crime. You may have concerns about your career, education, or family and how this case could affect them. Our goal is to reduce the impact of your charge in whatever way we can.

If you have been arrested for a misdemeanor offense, we can take the steps necessary to minimize the impact of your charge. We are sometimes able to have charges reduced or dismissed.
