Criminal Law

Criminal LawWhen facing criminal charges, you stand to lose more than a fine or jail time. You can lose your future. A criminal conviction can mean the loss of your right to participate in democracy through voting or running for office or your right to carry a weapon. Even a misdemeanor conviction may affect your ability to secure loans or gainful employment.

You need immediate legal representation to protect your rights, and you need it from the moment you receive that negative interaction with law enforcement. It is important that clients reach out to an attorney quickly. Law enforcement may seek to get you to admit to committing an offense in casual conversation. Don’t get caught out by an overzealous police officer. Have one of our Pennington Law attorneys communicate with law enforcement.

Our Pennington Law staff will fight with you every step of your case. We will gather the facts, including your side of the story, to best build a defense against the prosecution’s argument. If necessary, we will force the prosecution’s hand by setting your case for trial. This way, the prosecutor’s office will take a hard look at their case and decide quickly if they need to make an offer to work in your favor, whether that is a plea to a lesser offense or dismissing the charges. Should things go south at trial we have experience handling appeals, whether it be a mistake by a judge, jury or your trial attorney.

Our experience in protecting clients from police overreach will serve you well should you be unfortunate enough to be caught in up in a criminal matter. We are experienced in defending clients in DWI, drug possession and distribution, sexual offenses, assault and burglary cases. No one should not be unfairly caught up in the system and ruin their future, so if you are in the Williamson or Travis County area, call us at Pennington Law as soon as possible.

Pennington Law attorneys will work with young people in need of a criminal lawyer every step of the way to make sure the police, prosecutors and judges treat our clients fairly. If necessary, we will attempt to get juveniles into programs to avoid jail time and clear their record.

Our attorneys can deal with these sensitive matters with compassion, keeping the child’s best interest as a priority. We will ensure the kid doesn’t become a victim by being treated poorly by the juvenile justice system.
