Depending on the nature of the criminal charge or driving while intoxicated charge and the difficulty of your legal case, your fee will vary.

Expunctions

We all do things we regret. Unfortunately when your mistake resulted in a criminal charge like Driving While Intoxicated, there is typically a criminal record that is created and attached to your identity. The paper and digital trail left behind from a criminal episode can sink your hopes of a new job, prevent you from leasing an apartment, or could even negatively influence child custody issues.

 

What is an expunction?

Generally, when a judge signs an order of expunction for a particular criminal case, the release, maintenance, dissemination, or use of expunged records and files for any purpose is prohibited. Furthermore, the person arrested may deny the occurrence of the arrest and the existence of the expunction order. Whether you qualify for an expunction is a complex legal issue and it is crucial to hire a criminal defense attorney that is knowledgeable and experienced in this area.

Are you on Probation? Do you know about early termination?

Being on probation is costly. With ever rising fuel prices, transportation costs and monthly fees, the cost of being on probation is substantial. Being on probation is also inconvenient and time consuming.

The Texas Code of Criminal Procedure allows for the termination or reduction of your probation (community supervision) term under certain circumstances. At any time after you complete 1/3 of the original probation period or two years, whichever is shorter, you may apply for early termination of probation for many offenses. There are many other issues particular to your case that must be studied before a determination can be made as to whether you qualify for early termination of probation. Call for a free consultation.
