Our Houston, Texas, defense lawyers help people accused of theft or burglary.

Theft charges often stem from a misunderstanding over who actually owns the item in question. The person accused of theft may honestly believe the item belongs to him.

Or, theft charges may be the manifestation of an underlying problem. A person facing a theft charge may have serious financial problems, drug addiction problems, or gambling problems. The person may struggle with a compulsion to take things or may have trouble with resisting pressure from friends who urge the person to take something in order to be accepted.

We understand these problems and how they lead to theft allegations. We do not judge our clients because of their struggles. Instead, we offer our clients solid legal advice and strong advocacy.

We represent both adults and juveniles who have been accused of theft or burglary crimes. When we defend a client accused of theft or burglary, we conduct a thorough investigation into the situation. We evaluate the possible defense strategies available. Then, we choose the strategy most likely to get positive results.

We help people with charges related to:

  • Forgery
  • Burglary of a habitation
  • Burglary of a building
  • Robbery
  • Car theft
  • Check fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Shoplifting

We also help people facing assault charges.

Our educated team represents adults and juveniles accused of committing assault crimes.

Like theft charges, assault crimes are often the result of a misunderstanding or an argument. Many assault charges involve family members, close friends, or significant others. When situations get tense and emotional, people who care deeply about one another sometimes lose control. They may say things and do things that they don’t intend to do. Other assault charges stem from mindless bar fights or arguments over traffic incidents. Police officers often don’t try to figure out who started the fight; instead, they just arrest anyone involved in the altercation.

In most of these cases, there are two sides to the story. We make sure our client’s side is heard! Quite often, the event that led to the assault charge was not simply an attack by our client on another person, despite that description being given by the other side.

If you hire us to defend your assault case, our criminal defense attorneys will investigate the situation that led to your assault charge to determine who provoked whom (or if both parties acted aggressively). Then, when appropriate, we will develop evidence to show that the incident was not one sided or that you acted in self-defense.
