Houston Criminal Defense Attorneys

TX

If you have been arrested by a local or state law enforcement officer, charged with a crime, or recently learned about a criminal investigation, now is the time to consult an established criminal defense attorney. The Law Office of David A. Breston handles cases in Houston, Harris County, and across Texas.

If confronted by police, it’s important to remain polite, refuse to answer questions, and request an attorney. You may be scared about your future – and rightly so. A criminal conviction will follow you for the rest of your life. Whenever you have a criminal case concern or question, contact a team that can help you make an informed decision about your situation.

What to expect in the Texas criminal justice process

When everything goes according to plan, the justice system in Texas punishes individuals who are guilty of breaking the law. Unfortunately, things are rarely as straightforward and simple as they seem. Those who aren’t guilty may face a compelling case by the prosecution, and those who did commit a crime may be treated unfairly. After the commission of a crime, those who are accused, arrested, and charged have rights that should be protected, regardless of guilt or evidence.

Warrants and Arrest

You may be arrested by an officer in Texas if he or she has probable cause at the time or if sufficient evidence has been submitted to the court and a warrant has been issued. Once you hear about a warrant, it is the right time to contact an attorney. If you are arrested, accept your right to remain silent and ask for an attorney before you answer any questions, regardless of guilt or innocence.

Attending Court

As long as you are in custody, things that you say or do in front of law enforcement officers or prosecutors may be taken out of context and used to build a case against you. Stay calm and speak to an attorney when given the opportunity. He or she will guide you through the justice process in your jurisdiction. Do not attempt to enter a plea or represent yourself. For misdemeanors, you will typically be arraigned in a Texas county court. Felonies are charged by indictment in the presence of a grand jury in district court.

THE GOVERNMENT ADVANTAGE

Our attorneys are well aware of the inequality of power and material resources in the Texas criminal justice system. The State of Texas and United States Attorney’s Office take advantage of an extensive staff of lawyers, police and agents, sophisticated crime labs and experts, and a huge budget provided by the taxpayers.

The government has a tremendous advantage because the legal system is based on the premise that “the whole truth” is that presented at the trial. If a person accused of a crime cannot challenge the government’s case, or submit his or her own witnesses, then the jury by default will probably accept as true whatever evidence the prosecutor produces.

BALANCING THE SCALES OF JUSTICE

At the Law Office of David A. Breston, we work to level the playing field with the vast resources of the government, and provide outstanding legal advice, representation, and results to clients accused of state and federal crimes throughout Texas as well as people struggling with the bureaucratic U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service.

We believe communication is sometimes half the battle when representing clients. Clients need to know where they stand at all times, so they can properly consider all of their options. At our firm, our attorneys strive to always be approachable, responsive, efficient, and effective.

Our attorneys appreciate the importance of defending the rights of the accused, and use all available means to ensure that our clients receive high caliber legal representation and access to justice. Our clients come from all walks of life and need a law firm staffed by experienced, creative criminal defense and immigration lawyers who get results.
