A REPUTATION FOR EXCELLENCE

Criminal Defense Attorney

As a criminal defense attorney, Derek W. Emmons can defend those who have been charged with criminal acts. Early stages of a criminal case involves a preliminary hearing or grand jury that determines if any probable cause is present for the case to continue. This makes hiring a criminal defense attorney immediately after being arrested that much more important. A criminal defense attorney helps those with both misdemeanors and felony charges.

A misdemeanor is a criminal activity that is punishable by one year or less in jail while a felony is punishable for more than a year in jail. Regardless of the crime, any charge can have serious consequences. Derek W. Emmons can investigate the facts and identify any defenses that can lead to either dropped or reduced charges. He has experience in every branch of criminal law including:

  • Trespass
  • Criminal mischief
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Domestic Violence
  • DUI
  • BUI
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Drug Possession
  • Drug Sale
  • Drug Manufacturing
  • Drug Distribution
  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Violation of Probation

DWI Charges Defense

In Texas, it is illegal to drive or operate a motor vehicle if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. According to state DWI law, a person is considered too impaired to drive if his or her blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is over .08%. If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated, you do not have to face these charges alone. With the help of a DWI defense attorney in San Antonio, Texas who can represent you when you need legal expertise by your side, you can navigate the complicated legal waters with ease. Finding and hiring legal representation immediately helps to ensure that your case is defended the way it deserves to be. An attorney such as Derek W. Emmons can immediately investigate your case in order to obtain the evidence needed to represent you the way that you deserve.

The penalties associated with driving while intoxicated are very serious and can include jail time, fines, outpatient and in-patient treatment programs, as well as driver’s license suspensions. That in itself can lead to thousands of dollars in high-risk insurance premiums. Also, if someone is injured as a result of the drunken driving accident, it is possible that you will be charged with a felony, and if they die, you will be charged with felony motor vehicle homicide. This can lead to 2 to 20 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines. An experienced DWI defense attorney such as Derek W. Emmons can help you during this difficult time.

Drug Crimes Defense

In Texas, the laws on drugs are tough and Derek W. Emmons is knowledgeable on all categories of drugs and their penalties. A drug possession defense attorney has the experience and skills needed to represent people like you who are charged with these crimes in Texas. Drug possession charges in Texas are considered either Class B or Class A misdemeanors, which can lead up to one year in jail and fines of up to $4,000. With larger quantities or other charges added to someone’s case, individuals can face up to life in prison and up to $250,000 in fines. This is why hiring a drug possession drug attorney is important, as they allow you a better chance at reduced or dropped charges and the representation you deserve.

Other areas of criminal law that he has experience in includes:

  1. Intoxication Assault
  2. Domestic violence
  3. Sex crimes such as rape, indecent exposure, or child pornography
  4. White collar crimes such as wire fraud, securities fraud, mail fraud, or Welfare fraud
