Criminal Defense Attorney in Rockwall
Welcome to the Law Offices of Estrada & Estrada. My name is Alton Estrada,
and I am the Rockwall criminal defense lawyer at the firm. My firm practices
in North Texas and is prepared to help clients with all of their legal
issues. If you, a family member, or a friend is facing charges of a criminal
allegation, I am prepared to assist you through each step of the legal process.
With more than a decade of experience, I have
tried more than 120 jury trials. Drawing from this strong background, you can trust in the legal counsel
I provide for all of the following types of cases:
Assault and Battery
In Texas, assault charges range from just a small threat to the use of
a violent and dangerous weapon. You can be charged with assault even if
no physical contact has been made, however. Assault and battery crimes
include simple assault and aggravated assault, as well as domestic assault
(or domestic violence), and aggravated domestic assault.
Driving While Intoxicated
In the state of Texas, driving while intoxicated (DWI) refers to drunk
driving. This is charged when a driver's blood alcohol concentration
is at 0.08% or higher. If convicted of DWI, you can face substantial penalties
based on the factors of age, type of license, and other circumstances.
Individuals who are charged with a
second or third DWI offense can face even heavier penalties.
One of the most common types of drug crimes in the state of Texas is
possession of marijuana or cocaine. Another serious drug crime is
drug sale. Drug crimes are classified as
felony offenses. If aggravated factors are involved in your case, such as drug
sale near a school, your penalties may drastically increase. With the
serious penalties that Texas imposes on drug crime offenders, you will
need aggressive legal attention from my firm.
Minors are usually treated differently by the criminal justice system,
but the experience can still be traumatizing. Hire a juvenile defense
attorney who knows how to successfully handle these sensitive cases. In
aggravated cases, a juvenile may even be tried as an adult. Make sure
your child has experienced and aggressive defense.
Failing to comply with the terms of your probation could land you back
in jail. Have you been wrongfully accused of violating probation? You
need the representation of a seasoned criminal attorney to protect your freedom.
Sex crime penalties are very serious, especially when the sex crimes are
against minor children. If you are accused of a sex crime, you may face
years in prison, as well as mandatory registration as a sex offender.
Some of the sex crimes under the Texas Penal Code include
sexual assault, public lewdness, indecent exposure, and improper photography.
Theft crimes can be found under Texas Statutes Chapter 31. In Texas, theft
is often referred to as larceny, which takes place when property or services
are taken with the intent to deprive the owner of its value. It is also
considered theft to take property that you know has been stolen.
White Collar Crimes
Economic crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, forgery, and identity theft
– also known as "white collar" crimes – are federal
offenses that can result in a prison sentence upon conviction. Act quickly
to retain aggressive and proven criminal defense if you are facing charges
of a white collar crime.
Strong Legal Guidance in Northern Texas
As an experienced criminal defense lawyer, I have strong knowledge of the
process involved in and strategy required for every case. When I take
on a case, I can select the most appropriate case strategy to obtain a
