If you’ve been charged with a crime, you’ll need legal representation immediately. A criminal conviction will follow you around for the rest of your life. Even minor criminal offenses can carry hefty fines and jail time, not to mention probation and other punishments.
Julie Boren has extensive experience defending clients from conviction and is dedicated to helping you get a fair trial.
Technically, misdemeanors are minor crimes that haven’t hurt anyone or destroyed any property. Drug possession, first and second offense DWIs, and petty theft are all misdemeanors. A misdemeanor criminal conviction can still carry hefty punishment, especially if you’re a repeat offender.
In Texas, a misdemeanor conviction could result in fines of up to $4 thousand and one year of jail time. After you’ve served your time, though, the conviction will follow you around the rest of your life and make finding a job or renting an apartment incredibly difficult.
It’s in your best interest to hire a criminal defense attorney, even for minor crimes. They’ll negotiate with the District Attorney and, if necessary, take your case to trial to ensure that you aren’t convicted of a crime you aren’t guilty of.

Felony charges are more serious criminal charges than misdemeanors. Most felonies involve violence, but extreme instances of theft and property damage--like arson--are also felonies. Felony convictions are serious and could be penalized by up to life imprisonment and, in Texas, the death penalty.
There are several other consequences to being convicted of a felony. Felons may no longer vote, own firearms, and--in certain circumstances--belong to professional organizations. Finding work or a place to live after a felony conviction is especially difficult.
If you’ve been charged with a federal or state felony, you should seek legal representation immediately. Even minor felonies carry the possibility of serious fines and jail time in the state prison. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will be able to negotiate with the District Attorney and plead your case in court, if necessary.
Julie Boren has extensive experience defending clients from felony convictions. She will work hard to help you avoid jail time or conviction, whether that means taking a plea deal or going to trial. Contact us today for your felony criminal defense consultation.
DUI and DWI offenses are some of the most common cases in Texas criminal courts. Because of this, the Texas state legislature has increased the penalties for DWI convictions. They are neither a misdemeanor nor a felony but can be both, depending on how many times you’ve been convicted of driving under the influence.
The punishment for a first DWI, classified as a misdemeanor, can be a fine of up to $2000, up to 180 days in county jail, and a suspension of your driving privileges for up to a year. A third DWI conviction is a felony and can result in fines of up to $10 thousand, 10 years in state prison, and a license suspension of up to 2 years.
If you’ve been charged with a DWI, an experienced DUI lawyer will be able to help ensure you don’t wind up in jail or worse. They’ll be able to plead your case in court and ensure you aren’t punished unjustly. Contact us today to see how we can help with your DUI case.
