Should I accept a prosecutor's plea deal?

In most situations, prosecutors will offer a plea deal to avoid trial. They'll frame this deal as "the best you're going to get" and possibly even feign empathy for you. However, this tactic is often used to avoid taking a weak case to trial. Let your San Antonio criminal defense attorney review any possible deal before agreeing to it.

Can I appeal my criminal conviction?

Your ability to appeal a criminal conviction will depend heavily on the circumstances of your case. Appeals are very often available, but this won't always be true. For instance, appealing a conviction can be more difficult if you accept a plea deal. Let our San Antonio defense attorneys review your case and help you understand your options.

Should I fight charges if I'm guilty?

Guilt does not negate a person's right to legal representation and a fair trial. Remember, it's the responsibility of state and federal courts to prove your guilt. If they're unable to do so, then it's not appropriate for you to be convicted. Everyone makes mistakes, but these lapses in judgment don't necessarily have to ruin your life.

What if I'm partially responsible for my injuries?

Many people don't bother seeking compensation after an accident because they believe their own fault disqualifies them from financial recovery. This can be a costly mistake. Texas is a comparative negligence state, and that means injury victims may be entitled to compensation even if they contributed to their own injuries. Never make assumptions.

Should You Make a Deal to Avoid More Serious Charges?

Authorities aren't trying to do you a favor. Their goal is to get your case in and out of the system as quickly as possible. Many people don't realize it, but the entire system would come to a grinding halt if every criminal defendant suddenly started demanding a jury trial. Your best interests are far from their concern, and in many cases, they're offering a plea deal because they're unsure whether they could achieve a conviction at trial. Don't entrust your future to professionals who want to convict you of a crime. Contact an experienced attorney and let them review your case. In some instances, they may be able to have charges dismissed or secure a not-guilty verdict. And even if a plea arrangement is in your best interest, they can help negotiate better terms on your behalf to secure a more favorable outcome.

Is Avoiding a Criminal Conviction Possible?

In a perfect scenario, your attorney in San Antonio, TX would be able to have all charges against you dismissed. Unfortunately, there's no guarantee that you'll be able to avoid a conviction. This doesn't necessarily mean you'll "lose" your case. In some instances, a "win" could be securing reduced charges and a decreased penalty. In other cases, a "win" could entail receiving five years of probation rather than five years in jail. This is where the importance of having a criminal law professional on your side becomes apparent.
