There are number of reasons to seek a very good lawyer if you’ve been criminally charged anywhere in Texas, especially Houston. The main reason being is because you don’t want to have to serve any jail time, and who knows, you might be innocent.
Another reason to fight criminal charges the police may make against you is because you don’t want to be force to remit payment for any fines associates with the crimes you were alleged to have committed.
Finally, its in your best interest to prevent the appearance of criminal records on your background. This can haunt you long after you’ve served your time, paid your fine, and have gone on with your life. Those kind of background records can follow you for the rest of your life and cause all kinds of problems.
