Get Informed

Burglary refers to unlawfully entering a house or building with the intent to commit a felony, assault or theft. Robbery refers to unlawfully taking property from another person by force. Both crimes can result in felony charges and even life imprisonment, depending upon your situation. If you have been charged with either of these theft crimes, it is very important that you contact our lead attorney at the Martinez Law Firm in order to protect your constitutional rights.

If you have been convicted of a crime that is classified as a first degree felony under Texas Penal Law, you could face life in prison. This type of classification allows the court to sentence you to from anywhere from 5 to 99 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.

Whether or not you go to jail on a drug possession charge will depend on the type of drug found in your possession as well as the quantity. Illegal drugs are categorized under Penalty Groups in Texas according to their potential for addiction and abuse which dictate the penalties they incur. The penalties you face may also be influenced by criminal records, whether or not a minor was involved, if a weapon was used, whether or not serious injury or death was caused, whether or not intent to sell or distribute was found.

It is not legally necessary to have representation if you have been charged with DWI in Texas. You could be facing probation, license suspension, community service and even jail time if you are convicted. In light of these punishments, you might consider that protecting yourself legally by consulting with a professional attorney would be in your best interests.

If you are facing charges for crimes that you did not commit, you should contact an attorney immediately. Almost nothing is more unjust than spending time in prison for a crime of which you were not guilty. With the help of a Attorney Martinez at our law firm, you can make sure that you are protecting yourself with the best possible legal defense in the face of a false accusation.
