Criminal defense attorneys specialize in defending individuals who have been charged with some type of criminal activity. Regardless of what charges have been brought against an individual or what you have or have not done, every person has the right to a fair trial with legal representation. Our job as criminal defense lawyers is not to make judgments, but to ensure that your basic rights are upheld throughout the entire process while attempting to obtain the best possible outcome for your situation.
If you or a loved one have been charged with any of the following or other criminal activities, please get in touch with the Alex R. Hernandez Criminal Law Firm as soon as possible so we can work to move forward.
DWI or DUI
DWI — short for driving while impaired/intoxicated — can result in suspension of your driver’s license, fines, and even jail time. The more DWI’s you have, the more likely it is that you will be facing severe consequences. No one should ever make the decision to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but if you have been charged with doing this, you need a DUI lawyer you can count on. We can also answer questions you have regarding DWIs and DUIs, so please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
Did you know that you can be charged with burglary even if you don’t steal anything? In the legal sense, burglary happens when an individual enters a building without permission with the intent of thievery or assault. This includes breaking into cars, sheds, homes, and other buildings. In some cases, this can even result in a felony charge, so ensuring you have a defense lawyer on your side is key.
We specialize in a wide array of white collar crime defense, including forgery. Forgery can include bank fraud, forging documents for illegal entry into the country, counterfeiting money, using another’s credit card, or modifying a will or deed illegally. In Texas, this activity often results in stiff punishments, even though there was no physical harm. The consequences can be determined by how often this crime was allegedly committed, what amount of money was involved, how the forgery affected other parties involved, the age of the defendant, and other factors. For this complicated situation, make sure you have a white collar crime lawyer available to you.
Causing bodily injury to another can sometimes be a felony, especially if the offense is against a police officer or has occurred multiple times to the same person. Not all assault cases are created equal. Sometimes assault charges are brought after things get too heated at a sporting event and there are multiple parties involved. Other times the assault is one-sided against a child or elderly person, and when that assault involves a deadly weapon, charges can be even more severe. It is possible for assault charges to be brought against a person who did not even make a physical attempt to harm someone. Ensuring that you have a trusted assault lawyer working on your case can help get a better outcome during the proceedings.
