Criminal Felony Offenses

An arrest and a conviction for a felony results in very serious consequences that may have a lasting effect on your life. Some of those consequences include:

  • Prison time
  • Substantial fines and court costs
  • Probation fees, along with certain terms and conditions
  • Driver’s license suspensions or renewal denial
  • Substantial yearly surcharges assessed by the Texas Department of Public Safety
  • Inpatient and/or Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Counseling Treatment

A conviction for a felony may also affect you in other areas of your life, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Entrance into a certain school or college or ability to stay at your current school
  • Loss of ability to obtain student loan financing
  • Approval or cancellation of a professional license
  • Damage to reputation
  • Loss of employment and employment opportunities
  • Ability to lease property

If you are not a citizen of the United States of America, a plea of guilty or no contest, or a finding of guilt for the offense charged may result in deportation, the exclusion from admission to this country, or the denial of naturalization under federal law, so make sure you have an experienced defense team on your side.
