Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer Protects Your Legal Rights
Experienced Texas criminal defense attorney knows the law and zealously defends clients’ interests
The Law Offices of Stephen H. Miller, located in Plano, Texas, has been defending the rights of criminal defendants for over 25 years. Since 1992, I have dedicated my practice to aggressively defending those who have been charged with drunk driving, juvenile offenses, drug offenses and violent crimes or seeking to have their criminal record expunged.
Accomplished attorney defends individuals charged with drunk driving
In Texas, you can be charged with the crime of driving while intoxicated (DWI) if you have a blood or breath alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher or if you are impaired due to alcohol or drugs regardless of your BAC. Fines for a DWI can be up to $2,000 and jail time ranges from three days to 180 days for a first offense. Repeat offenders face much stiffer penalties. I have defended DWI cases for over 25 years and will work to protect your rights.
Zealous advocate protects the rights of juveniles charged with a crime
Texas defines a “juvenile” as a person between the ages of 10 and 17 at the time he or she engaged in an act of delinquent conduct or conduct in need of supervision. If your child is adjudicated as a minor, it can result in probation and, if certified as an adult, jail time. I represent juveniles through all stages of the Juvenile Court process and work to obtain an adjudication in their favor or reduce the penalties imposed.
Experienced litigator handles cases involving drug charges
In Texas, the knowing possession of an illegal drug or a controlled drug for which you do not have a medical prescription is a criminal offense. The penalties for drug possession in Texas are serious and depend on various factors, including the type/classification of the drug, the quantity possessed and past convictions. I will challenge the prosecution’s evidence and work to have your charges reduced or dismissed.
Texas attorney defends those charged with a violent crime
Texas imposes harsh penalties for violent crimes, including assault & battery, sexual assault, domestic violence and homicide. Texas law allows the death penalty for serious violent crimes such as first degree murder. Assault & battery and aggravated assault may be a misdemeanor or felony depending on the circumstances.
Knowledgeable lawyer works to achieve expungement of criminal records
Texas allows for expungement — known as “expunction” — of criminal records in certain situations. Expunction means that your criminal offense is erased from your record. If you are eligible, I will work to expunge your offense so that you can move forward with your life unencumbered by a criminal record.
