When a criminal allegation is made, the police will open an investigation. Unfortunately, all too often this investigation may turn out to be completely one-sided. It may seem less like a search for the truth and more like an execution. While the police provide a great service to our community, it is critical that you understand, when you are the subject of a criminal investigation, the police are not on your side. If you have been contacted by a police officer or if someone has alleged that you committed a crime, you must speak with a criminal defense attorney to insure that your rights are protected. Whether you are innocent or guilty, talking with the police only provides them information that will be used against you. Don't assume that you can reason with them or talk your way out of it. You may only dig a deeper hole for yourself. You need to have an experienced criminal attorney on your side.A Premier Trial Lawyer on Your Side

If you find yourself on the road in the late hours of the evening, there is a high probability that you could become the target of a DWI investigation. Police officers know that a much higher percentage of the vehicles on the road late at night are operated by intoxicated drivers. The simplest of violations then becomes probable cause for a traffic stop and a Driving While Intoxicated investigation.
While most DWI investigations involve only alcohol, it is becoming increasingly common that other drugs, including prescription medications, are the primary source of a person's suspected intoxication. Blood samples, some taken by consent and others taken by search warrant, are tested with substances in the blood identified and measured. Collin, Dallas, and Denton County law enforcement agencies have become increasingly aggressive in obtaining search warrants for the forcible drawing of an accused citizen's blood. They will use that blood and any other evidence obtained in the prosecution of your case. That prosecution for DWI can lead to a criminal conviction, suspension of your driver’s license, surcharges, fines, probation, community service, and even jail time.
Let our experienced DWI lawyer challenge the State's case and insure that your rights are protected.Family Violence (Domestic Violence)
An argument in the home can often escalate and sometimes get out of control. A person, who otherwise may have no violent propensities at all, may find themselves engaged in a physical confrontation, and then the police are called. You may have even been the victim of that violence. Once the police are involved in a domestic disturbance, there is a very high probability that someone is going to jail. The police will not accept the risk of leaving a potentially violent person in the home, and an arrest is then likely to occur.
Following an arrest for family violence, a court may impose an Emergency Protective Order or bond conditions which may limit your ability to communicate with your spouse, prohibit you from seeing your kids, and even ban you from going back to your own home. This happens without any trial and prior to any finding of guilt. It all happens based on the allegation alone. An arrest for family or domestic violence can have severe consequences. Don't leave the outcome of your future to chance. Hire a domestic violence lawyer experienced in handling these types of cases. Waren Price has handled hundreds of domestic violence cases. He can help you.Marijuana Possession
When we take on representation of a client charged with possession of marijuana, our goal is the dismissal of all charges. As more states move toward the legalization of marijuana, Texas remains firmly against full blown legalization. In spite of that, most district attorney's offices and many law enforcement agencies acknowledge the changing environment. Many prosecutors can be persuaded to treat the possession of a small quantity of marijuana as being more the equivalent of possessing paraphernalia and may reduce the charges to a class c misdemeanor given the right circumstances. Others may even agree to dismiss the charges all together where there are adequate defensive issues raised by your marijuana defense attorney. Make no mistake that marijuana possession can have significant consequences including fines, probation, jail time, community service hours, and loss of driving privileges. Dismissal of your case is our goal. Let us work with you to meet yours. If you have a Collin, Dallas, or Denton County marijuana case, call us today and speak directly with an experienced marijuana possession attorney.Drug Possession
With the increasing recognition that drug addiction is a disease, there are ever increasing efforts in the judicial system to treat the addiction rather than simply incarcerate the addict. In spite of that recognition, the laws governing drug possession have not significantly changed in recent years. Possession of many common street drugs, including cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine are felony offenses and carry the potential for severe consequences. We want to work with you to fight your drug possession charges and to put you in the best position to recover from the criminal charges brought against you. Our Frisco drug possession lawyer can help.Juvenile Offenses
Criminal prosecutions of persons younger than 17 are handled in the juvenile justice system. While that system is not technically criminal in nature, the penalties for many offenses can be significant. Generally, the goal of the juvenile system is to rehabilitate the accused juvenile. We have successfully defended many young offenders. If your child has been accused of committing a criminal offense, they need an experienced criminal attorney on their side. We want to insure your child's rights are protected. We want to insure your child's future is not permanently harmed.Expunction of Criminal Records
Once you have been arrested for a crime, you now have a criminal history. That criminal record may later turn up at the worst possible time. Our goal from the beginning of our representation is to put you in the best position to insure that this type of long term effect doesn't happen in your case. Even if you did make a mistake or suffer a brief lapse in judgment in the past, there is no reason that you should be punished for the rest of your life. We all make mistakes, and we all bear the consequences of those mistakes, but those consequences don't have to be permanent.
If you were arrested in Collin, Dallas, Denton or Tarrant County, let us fight to protect your rights and put you in the best position to clear all of this from your criminal record.
