Drug offenses can have serious consequences which makes it important to hire a skilled attorney who understands these types of offenses. Beyond the initial charge, there can be any number of issues that need to be addressed. For this reason, a knowledgeable attorney is a necessity.
Shoplifting, Theft, and Theft by Check
The seriousness of the theft charge depends on the value or amount stolen. You can be charged with theft from a store, theft by writing a bad check, theft from an employer, and many other form of theft. Theft is very serious because it is considered a “crime of moral turpitude” and can follow you the rest of your life. It is important you understand all of your options and the the consequences that go along with if you are charged with a theft offense.
Juvenile law is very unique in that your attorney needs to be familiar with the more than just criminal law. A juvenile arrest could result in school suspension or expulsion and placement in an alternative school. If your juvenile is detained, it is important you contact an attorney as soon as possible so that your child’s rights can be protected.
Evading/Resisting Arrest and Fail to ID
These as well as other similar offenses involve your encounter with a police officer and these laws are constantly changing. It is important that you find an attorney that understands these laws so that your rights are protected.
Administrative License Review Hearings
When your driver’s license is been suspended, typically you are entitled to a hearing to determine whether or not the suspension is proper. Suspensions resulting from DWI’s and DUI’s only allow 15 days to request this hearing. It is important you hire an attorney quickly to protect your rights in these hearings.
Occupational Driver’s License
If your license has been suspended, you may be eligible for a restricted license limited to driving to work and for essential household needs. In most cases you will need to participate in a hearing is required to show the judge why you need the occupational license.
Expunctions and Non-Disclosures
If your misdemeanor was dismissed, or the charges were never brought after an arrest, you may be eligible for an Expunction. Expunctions are important because they clean up all records of your arrest and/or charges. Non-disclosures allow you to keep your deferred adjudication disposition from being released to the public. If you have received deferred adjudication, you may be eligible for a non-disclosure.
