Felony ChargesIf charged with a felony offense, seek a quality criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and preserve evidence that could establish your innocence.

Felony cases need serious care and attention from the onset. If you are contacted by officials–even if you are not formally charged–consult an attorney before giving any statements or signing any documents. You could be under investigation before any charges are brought forward.

What Happens If You Are Convicted of a Felony?

Individuals convicted of a felony either serve a prison sentence or a lengthy period of supervised probation. Afterwards, expect limited employment prospects. If convicted, you may have your drivers license and other professional licenses revoked.

All felony convictions are reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety and become a public record. An employer faced with two equally qualified persons will always hire the one with a clean record. Individuals convicted of a felony should prepare to face the adverse effects for years to follow.

Why Choose Justin Sparks Law Firm?

Justin Sparks is a former prosecutor, trained to spot flaws in arrest warrants, search warrants, and indictments that other attorneys might miss. When brought to attention, flaws in these documents require the judge to deny the prosecutor the right to use any related evidence against you in trial. Challenging a police officer’s basis for your arrest and demonstrating a lack of probable cause could also result in a dismissal of the charges against you. Justin knows the requirements and procedures in a felony court case, and subsequently how and what to evaluate for your case.
