If you have just received notice that you are being investigated for a criminal offense, you can either make the mistake of running away from your problem, inevitably leading you down a path of personal ruin, a lingering criminal record, and possibly jail time. Or you can choose to hire Dallas’ best criminal defense lawyer, Justin Sparks.
If you’ve been arrested, or charged with a criminal offense, whether its a federal fraud offense or petty theft, your first action should be to call a criminal defense attorney immediately. A lawyer can explain your rights during each stage of the criminal process, help reduce the criminal charge to a lesser offense, lessen the severity of punishment, reduce or eliminate jail time, and help to construct a sound defense strategy. Acting quickly can also increase your chances of having the offense expunged from your record.
In the State of Texas, laws pertaining to firearms are in flux. If you’ve been arrested or charged with carrying a holstered handgun openly in a public place, you need a Texas firearms lawyer who is in-tune with recent changes to Texas handgun restrictions. If you suspect your rights as a gun owner have been violated, calling a lawyer should be one of the first steps you take toward clearing the illegal charges brought against you. While gun laws may seem cut and dry, there are several instances where carrying a handgun or long gun is illegal. If you’re unaware of these laws, seek the aid of a criminal defense attorney ready to educate you on Texas gun rights as well as punishable offenses.
In Texas, DWI, or Driving While Intoxicated, is essentially drunk driving. According to the Texas DMV, if a person is legal drinking age, but a blood test indicates that a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) exceeds 0.08%, that person is considered to be drunk driving. A commercial driver with a BAC of 0.04% is considered driving while intoxicated. For minors, the BAC is 0%. Violating the rules set forth by the DMV carry expensive penalties, and jail time, and could result in the loss of your job, and loss of driving privileges. While a DWI/DUI attorney cannot prove your innocence if your BAC was in excess, a lawyer may be able to help minimize the DWI penalties.
The Federal government has the funds to assemble a powerful team of investigators and attorneys to rally against a person suspected of conspiracy, drug crimes, or embezzlement. Federal crimes are not limited to US soil. Wire fraud, kidnapping, illegal arms trading, and terrorism are all examples. Chances are, long before a person is aware of any suspicion by law enforcement, the federal government has already employed the FBI to investigate any suspicious activities, and is already planning their case. Often times, suspected individuals fall prey to unconstitutional tactics to draw out a confession of guilt. Justin Sparks is a federal crimes lawyer with a powerful knowledge of the federal law.
Causing harm to another person, whether intentionally or recklessly, carries a range of penalties. The definition of assault includes simple assault (Class A, B, C misdemeanor, or felony), bodily injury, recklessness, provocative or offensive contact, and domestic assault. The penalties also vary, and with proper defense, jail sentences can be reduced to deferred adjudication or community probation. But an assault conviction becomes part of your permanent criminal record. Hiring an assault lawyer that is familiar with the local criminal court system will increase your chances of the best possible outcome. Justin Sparks handles simple assault, aggravated assault, domestic assault, murder, and resisting arrest cases in Dallas/Fort Worth.
