Fighting to Get YOUR CASE DROPPED OR DISMISSED

The criminal justice system in Texas is in place to punish people who break the law. Unfortunately, people and situations are much more complex than the courts make them out to be. You may face a compelling case by the prosecution that could land you a hefty sentence, even if you did not commit the crime. Those guilty of certain crimes may have a lighter sentence.

If you are facing criminal accusations in Houston, including shoplifting, felony charge, assault, and immigration violations, the Law Office of David A. Breston is here to help. Our criminal defense attorneys know how to approach your case and will fight for your side of the story. Contact us today to learn more about how our lawyers can protect your rights while facing the Texas criminal justice system.

Have You Been Arrested in Harris County? Contact Us Today at (713) 224-4040!

A Houston police officer may arrest you if he or she has probable cause or a judge has signed a warrant for your arrest. Contact your attorney as soon as possible once you hear about the warrant.

If law enforcement officers arrest you in Harris County, it is important to comply with their orders and remain calm. You can contact your attorney afterwards if you believe the arrest was unfair. If you suffer injuries during your arrest, take photographs of the injuries and seek medical attention as soon as possible.

During your arrest, remember, you have the right to remain silent. Do not answer any questions the officers ask you and do not volunteer information. These officers could use whatever you say against you in court.

Understand Your Rights & Legal Options After You’ve Been Arrested

When you are in custody of law enforcement, it is important to remember that prosecutors and police officers may use anything you say or do against you in court. As soon as you can, contact your attorney. Do not say anything to any police officer until your attorney arrives at the police station. Make sure your attorney is with you whenever an officer is questioning you, if you are in a lineup, or if you are having testing done.

If you are facing criminal charges, you may feel tempted to enter into your case without an attorney or to use the court-appointed attorney. However, these options may not allow you to build the strongest case possible to defend your side of the story. When you hire a Houston criminal defense attorney such as David A. Breston, you receive individualized attention and a number of resources to benefit your case.

Building a Defense Case in Houston

When you hire a criminal defense attorney, you have access to a wide range of resources and experts to help build your defense. Your Houston criminal defense attorney can use his or her resources to gain access to evidence and witnesses, as well as collect expert testimony to argue for the best possible outcome. You can receive the following resources when you hire the Law Office of David A. Breston.

  • A team of legal professionals familiar with the facts of your case
  • Independent investigators who are experts in certain subject matter
  • Crime labs equipped with state-of-the-art technology

With a Houston defense attorney, you hire someone who has the experience and training necessary to advocate on your behalf. Your criminal defense attorney will look at the options available to do and the facts of your case, and help craft a compelling defense. Our law can argue for your innocence, as well as negotiate for plea deals and reduced sentences.
