Baytown Criminal Defense Attorney

Criminal Charges: A Danger to Your Freedom

Any criminal charge, whether a misdemeanor or felony, can impact your life forever if you are convicted. The Baytown Police are a highly committed group with 149 sworn officers. Their three bureaus are focused on different areas of law enforcement and work closely together to identify, arrest and assist in the conviction of those who they believe are engaged in criminal activities in the area. There were 3,775 total crimes in 2011, ranging from 261 DWI's, 701 burglaries, 119 assaults, 2632 assaults, 228 auto thefts and many other crimes. The focus of the department is to reduce the crime rate in the area.

If you have been arrested and charged, you are in serious trouble. The prosecutors and police work hand-in-hand to get results in court. It is imperative that you have an equally coordinated defense team on your side if you are facing serious felony charges. Our founding attorney at the Khawaja Law Firm, PLLC, Ibrahim Khawaja, formerly served as a prosecutor, and was the Chief Prosecutor of County Criminal Court at Law #6. His background serving on the other side of the aisle can be of great benefit to you in your defense. Call upon our dedicated team for immediate representation in criminal charges.

Texas Law and Your Rights

You have the right to remain silent, and the right to an attorney under the U.S. Constitution. The Texas criminal justice system is known for being one of the most punishing in the country, and the last place you want to find yourself is behind bars, facing charges. The penalties imposed by the courts in the area are not minor, even for a misdemeanor offense. The most important action you could take if you have been arrested is to exercise your rights and remain silent and get a Baytown criminal lawyer that knows the system working on your side. Don't answer questions, don't try to explain what happened, and don't expect any sympathy from the police. Just contact our firm immediately to get a high quality criminal defense lawyer on your side.

If you are accused of committing a violent crime such as assault, battery, or domestic violence, or the most serious criminal charges of manslaughter or murder, your case must be carefully managed from the moment of your arrest. There is little doubt that the prosecutor will be aggressively pursuing a conviction – that is their duty and job. They will present the evidence against you in an organized fashion, and the fact of your arrest indicates that they believe that they have sufficient evidence to convict you. It is imperative that you take action to fight back, and that is where our firm comes in. We know the law, we know how to present a persuasive defense case, and we believe in justice and in protecting our clients throughout every step of the criminal justice process.

Powerful Defense Against Drug Charges

We defend all types of drug crimes including charges related to cocaine, codeine, ecstasy, as well as illegal possession of prescription drugs, marijuana crimes of all types such as possession, manufacturing & drug trafficking, and the first part of the defense process is to review the evidence for errors, such as illegal search & seizure. There are a surprising number of criminal drug cases in which serious errors have been made by law enforcement, and these errors must be discovered as early as possible after your arrest. In some cases, we may engage the services of a private investigator to get information about witnesses, other possible perpetrators or to provide other types of expert testimony that could support your defense in court. Each case is unique and the strategy we employ will be based upon the existing evidence and other factors that could influence a decision by a jury.

Enlist effective advocacy!

If you have been arrested and charged with DWI, the impact of a conviction can last for years. You could have your opportunities for employment diminished, you will be paying exorbitant rates for insurance, and you will definitely be without a license for a period of time, even in a first time DWI misdemeanor conviction. What if your case is flawed and you could have the charges dismissed? You will never know unless we have the opportunity to evaluate the evidence, exactly what happened, the testing procedures, the area in which you were stopped and why and all the other factors in your case. It is important that we do so immediately after your arrest.

We also represent those who are facing charges of internet crimes, juvenile crimes, sex crimes such as rape and possession or distribution of child pornography. If your case involves theft crimes such as burglary, robbery, shoplifting or other theft crimes, get our firm on your side. Our early involvement could be critical. We will know what to do after we analyze the situation and the evidence that led to your arrest. We also offer our services to those who are accused of white collar crimes such as fraud crimes, embezzlement, identity theft, credit card offenses, and a range of other financial crimes. Get help from a professional defense law firm with a record of success. That is your best option when facing charges. Call today!
