A Proven Track Record of Success
Avoid the Consequences — Both Direct and Indirect
A criminal accusation may affect you far beyond the punishment that the court will announce. Many indirect consequences occur after the conviction that can last for a lifetime.
A criminal conviction can be a career ending event for professions that require special certification such as law enforcement officers, doctors, nurses, school teachers in private or public institutions, pilots, or members of the military. These individuals may be unable to continue in their chosen fields even if their criminal cases are resolved without a conviction.
Being accused of serious offenses relating to drug crimes, violent crimes, or other felony offenses can have considerable implications on your future career and
educational opportunities. Even high school and college students can face challenges with their educational opportunities for years to come following a criminal investigation.
Don't let this happen to you. A Houston criminal defense lawyer can help you navigate the Texas legal system as you fight to obtain the best possible result in your criminal case. Matt Horak takes a full-service approach to helping his clients deal with the indirect consequences of the criminal case. When eligible, he advises his clients on their rights to seal or expunge the criminal record to avoid many of the indirect consequences of an official criminal investigation.
Same-Day Representation Services
Dedicated Criminal Defense for Your Best Interests
After an arrest, an experienced attorney can contact the prosecutor's office before they make a filing decision. Whether you were wrongly accused of a crime or the prosecutor lacks sufficient evidence to support a conviction, having the backing of a skilled lawyer can make all the difference. An attorney knows what defenses work well with juries and judges as well as what it takes to get a prosecutor to drop the charges that have been filed.
Our goal is to get your charges dropped or reduced. Using expert witnesses and private investigators during pre-trial negotiations or at trial can often help tip the scales in your favor against a determined prosecutor. Based on the circumstances of your case, a criminal defense attorney may find any number of problems with the prosecution's case, including evidence that should be excluded or suppressed. When there is insufficient evidence to support the charge, your criminal defense attorney can fight to have the charges dropped completely.
