Criminal Defense Without Appearing in Court

Court Many criminal defense cases can be resolved without the defendant ever appearing in court. For example, many common criminal charges like: Driving with a Suspended License, No Valid Registration, No Valid Driver’s License, No Proof of Insurance, Resisting an Officer Without Violence, Open Container, Theft, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and DUI.

In addition to having these charges resolved without appearing in court, an experienced criminal defense attorney can many times have these charges dismissed and sealed from one’s criminal record. You many notice that in Rockwall County and Dallas County law enforcement officers target specific areas for these crimes. Take DUI or DWI for example…if you are leaving the lake area in Rockwall at Dalrock at night, you are very likely to see an officer observing traffic and pulling over any suspicious vehicles to check for intoxication.

It is important to have an experienced criminal attorney so that your record does not cause issues for you in the future. Many homeowners associations, employers, volunteer organizations and colleges look into an applicants background during the application process.
