Practice Areas

As a criminal defense attorney, I understand what’s at stake for the people I defend. I represent persons charged with any and every kind of felony and misdemeanor from DWI to Capital Murder.

Just a few of the practice areas I represent include:

Domestic Violence – Domestic violence refers to the intentional use of violence or force on a spouse, former spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend or member of the same family or household. It is sometimes referred to as “family violence” as well. These types of charges have a strong emotional element involved. Once police officers are called to a domestic violence scene, there is a good chance that someone will be going to jail. The consequences can be harsh including restraining orders that bar you from your home and family, jail time that ranges from a county jail sentence to incarceration in a TDCJ prison, and a lifelong criminal record that will impede your ability to work or own a firearm. Due to the complexity of these types of charges, it is important to have aggressive, objective representation. I will fight for your rights.

Drug Crimes – If you have been charged with drug possession, drug distribution, or any other drug-related crime, it is crucial that you have experienced and knowledgable representation. Even a misdemeanor conviction on your record can have serious consequences. I take an aggressive and thorough approach to each client and protect your constitutional rights. You may be eligible for alternative sentencing by the courts. I combine a thorough understanding of the law, knowledge of the local courts, and fierce determination to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

Driving While Intoxicated/Driving Under the Influence (DWI/DUI) – If you have been charged with DWI or any alcohol-related offense, it is important that you understand your rights. The consequences of pleading guilty or not fighting such a charge can mean anywhere from a few days in jail to decades in prison, depending on whether you have been convicted of a serious crime in the past, and particularly if you have been previously convicted of felony DWI or similar offense. Your license can be suspended or revoked, putting you in financial trouble and you may face surcharges from the court for up to three years. In these cases the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were “intoxicated” as defined by Texas state law. I can help you to fight for dropped or reduced charges. Contact me immediately if you have been charged with any alcohol related offense…

Federal Crimes – Any crime that violates federal legislation or committing a crime on federal property. These kinds of cases are investigated at the federal level by government agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the IRS. There are many categories that fall under this jurisdiction. Just a few include antitrust, counterfeiting, immigration law violations, fraud (accounting fraud, bankruptcy fraud, health care fraud, etc) tax crimes, gun law violations, drug possession, and a number of others. Federal crime procedures are extremely complex. If you have been accused of a federal crime, it’s important that you contact me immediately…

Juvenile Crimes – A juvenile defender is anyone under the age of 18 in most states who commits any act prohibited by law. It is extremely important to a minor’s future that they have the best representation possible. As in other cases, do not volunteer any information to authorities without an attorney present or discuss your case with anyone else. Juvenile cases have many unique aspects. I have a thorough knowledge of the intricacies in representing a juvenile defender. Contact me immediately…

Homicide – Homicide cases require immediate investigation and the counsel of an experienced, knowledgable criminal defense lawyer. In Texas, there are various types of homicide: capital murder, murder, reckless manslaughter, intoxicated manslaughter, felony murder, and negligent homicide. To date, no capital murder defendant-client of mine has ever received the death penalty. Further, in State v. Laird, a capital murder case that went to full battle weeks-long jury trial, the jury returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY of capital murder to my client. I have the extensive trial experience required for homicide cases. If your liberty and freedom is at stake, you need an aggressive attorney that will fight for you. Don’t settle for anything less. Contact me today…

White Collar Crimes – This refers to non-violent crimes of a business nature such as fraud (bankruptcy fraud, credit card fraud, healthcare fraud, insurance fraud, etc.) embezzlement, forgery, money laundering, public corruption, extortion, bribery, antitrust violations and a number of others. These are generally prosecuted in federal court although they may be enforced on a state level. Being charged with a white collar crime can often mean going up against federal agencies such as the FBI, the IRS, and others. If you are under investigation for a white collar crime, it is critical to get counsel immediately to begin building a defense.

Weapons Cases – These charges can refer to almost anything that can cause physical harm to someone else including firearms, knives, pepper spray and others. If proper procedure wasn’t followed or your constitutional rights violated in any way, I can have those actions reviewed by the court often reducing charges or getting them dropped altogether. It is important that you call me immediately so that I can begin building your defense. Contact the Davidson Law Office…

Sex Crimes – Sex offenses are a serious criminal charge. An accusation of a sex crime can destroy your reputation. A conviction can be extremely devastating, leading to the loss of your job, your family and your freedom. It is critical if accused of a sex offense that you make no statement without an experienced criminal defense attorney present. Sex offenses can include date rape, indecent exposure, rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, statutory rape, and others…

WRITS OF HABEAS CORPUS

I represent persons in applications for writ of habeas corpus cases. A writ of habeas corpus is a judicial mandate to a prison official ordering that an inmate be brought to the court so it can be determined whether or not that person is imprisoned lawfully and whether or not he or she should be released from custody. Also, an accused may file a habeas corpus petition if a judge declares him or her in contempt of court and jails or threatens to jail that person.

If you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense, it is critical that you seek the counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney. I have handled thousands of criminal cases. I will fight for your rights and freedom. Contact me as soon as possible. In all criminal cases, time is of the essence. Do not delay.
