Providing Texans With A Criminal Defense To Count On
A criminal conviction of any kind can leave your life with more complications than you intended. In addition to legal repercussions, like fines and jail time, you may also experience collateral consequences, like the inability to keep or find a job, a damaged reputation and strained relationships with friends and family, and difficulty finding a place to live. If you are facing criminal charges, then you deserve a Texas defense lawyer who can help you fight your charges to avoid these consequences.
I am attorney John Hicks, and I craft personalized defense strategies for my clients facing criminal charges. My experiences as a Marine veteran, an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) worker and a firefighter help me make critical quick decisions while keeping a level head in stressful situations. At my San Antonio office of The Hicks Law Firm, you can rely on me to help you through your case, no matter how challenging it may seem.
How Can A Criminal Defense Attorney Help Your Case?
I know that the details surrounding a case are the keys to building a strong defense, which is why I take the time to learn all the necessary information in a case instead of making assumptions. As your legal representation, I can stand up for you through charges involving:
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Robbery and theft
I know these kinds of cases often leave my clients with more questions than answers. This is why I remain in constant contact with them, providing them with information about their cases and details on what I am doing for them while also answering any questions they may have along the way.
I pride myself on looking for creative solutions to earn the outcomes my clients deserve in their cases. From confirming police errors to winning cases through litigation to minimizing the charges and consequences through negotiation, I explore all available options to best help my clients.
Common Types Of Drug Offenses
There are many different types of drug offenses, but some are more common than others. The most common charges I see for drug crimes are possession of marijuana charges. These charges can easily escalate into intent-to-sell charges when someone has more than 4 ounces on them at the time of the arrest.
What Is The Definition Of Assault In Texas?
Many people underestimate what kinds of actions can result in assault charges. In Texas, anyone who knowingly, intentionally or recklessly causes someone else to experience bodily harm or threatens someone with immediate bodily harm can receive assault charges. This means that even if you did not touch someone, you may still face assault charges.
Leave Your Defense In Good Hands
During my time in military and emergency service, I have been in countless situations where I was responsible for someone else’s future. I know the urgency of these matters and how important it is to not make any critical mistakes in these cases, which is why I give every one of my clients the respect and attention they deserve.
