Answers To Commonly Asked Questions About Criminal Defense
An arrest can raise many questions about your future. The Conroe criminal defense firm, The Law Offices of David P. Ward, draws from experience on both sides of Texas law – beginning with prosecution. Our attorney will work one-on-one with you to strategize how to fight for the best possible results in your case.
During your free initial consultation with our firm, we will provide reasonable expectations about what to expect during your involvement with the criminal justice system. When your freedom is at stake, you need a trial lawyer who is willing to provide dedicated counsel to your case.
Our firm provides straightforward representation, beginning with answering questions such as:
Why Can’t You Represent Yourself?
If you face criminal charges, you have the constitutional right to representation. In some instances, a court will appoint an overloaded public defender. However, our private practice can dedicate our time to strategizing your defense. We will protect your rights while exploring all possible avenues for reducing your sentence or getting your case dismissed. Rather than just accepting a plea, we will fight for the best possible results in your case, taking it to trial if that is in your best interest.
What If The Police Made An Error?
We will help you determine if an error factored into your arrest. Whether police used excessive force, discriminated against you or conducted a drunk driving traffic stop without probable cause, an officer’s actions could be beneficial to your case.
How Does A Misdemeanor Differ From A Felony?
Both misdemeanors and felony charges can result in fines, jail time and a tarnished reputation, though consequences are more severe for felony convictions. A felony on your record can restrict your right to carry a firearm, travel abroad or live in specific housing environments, and may minimize your employment opportunities.
Our experience with both sides of the law is imperative in fighting for favorable results and, when applicable, expunging your record.
