Criminal Defense

Texas is known for its harsh criminal penalties compared to other states. If you are charged with any crime, you need a criminal defense attorney with experience in Conroe and Montgomery County courts. The potential penalties will vary depending on the crime with which you are charged, but even a relatively minor crime like shoplifting property valued between $50 and $500 can result in jail time of up to six months and a substantial fine. However, each crime must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, and Ron Voyles will make sure that the prosecution’s case is challenged at every step of the way. He can raise both procedural and substantive defenses in pursuit of a dismissal or acquittal, or he can negotiate a favorable plea bargain if that is the appropriate strategy.

DWI

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious crime, and a conviction can change your life. The penalties for DWI vary depending on your previous record. A first DWI conviction can result in three to 180 days in jail, a fine of up to $2,000, and a possible license suspension. However, a second DWI can result in up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $4,000, as well as installing an ignition interlock device if the second conviction was within five years of the first. A third conviction has even harsher penalties, including two to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Because of these serious consequences, it is important to hire a skilled DWI attorney in Montgomery County. There are many defenses to DWI that may apply to your case, such as attacking the legitimacy of the initial police stop or the way in which the police conducted tests.

Drug Crimes

If you are charged with a drug crime in Texas, you are likely facing harsh penalties. Even a conviction for possession of a small amount of marijuana can result in penalties of up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. Beyond the official penalties, having drug charges on your record can make it hard to obtain employment, housing, and other necessities. However, an experienced Conroe criminal defense attorney can raise any applicable defenses. For example, if you did not have control over the drugs, or if the police found the drugs during an unlawful search, this may be a basis for getting the charges dropped or dismissed.

Assault

In Texas, you can be charged with assault even if you just threaten someone with an imminent bodily injury. In other words, you do not even need to cause actual injuries to be convicted of assault in Texas. You can be convicted of aggravated assault if there is a serious injury or if a weapon was used. Whether an assault is a misdemeanor or a felony depends on the type of harm that occurs, as well as who was involved. First-degree felonies, the most serious kinds of assault, are when the assault is against a family member or romantic partner or against a police officer or other public official. No matter the type of assault charge that you are facing, Conroe criminal defense lawyer Ron Voyles can help you tell your side of the story and make sure that your rights are protected.

Personal Injury

If you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, such as being struck by a careless driver, you deserve to be compensated for those injuries. In order to show that you are due compensation, there are several elements that you must prove. You need to prove to the court that the person whom you are suing owed you a duty that they failed to meet and that it caused your injuries. For example, drivers are supposed to keep a proper lookout when they are behind the wheel and avoid getting distracted. If you are successful in your claim, you can likely recover compensation for your medical bills, lost income and earning capacity, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Car Accidents

If you are injured in a car accident, you may be tempted to just let your insurance company handle it, but that is probably a mistake. Texas is a “fault” state, which means that the driver who was at fault for the accident (or usually their insurer) is responsible for paying for the injuries and damages that the victim suffered. While you have up to two years to sue for damages after an accident, you should contact an experienced car accident attorney as soon as possible to help you make sure that you do not let your rights lapse and preserve all of the evidence that will be important to your case.

Truck Accidents

The size of large trucks means that the injuries and damages in a truck accident may be worse than in an ordinary car accident. However, in a truck accident, the driver may not be the only party that is liable. Truck drivers may be employees of a larger company, which means that the company may also be at fault. This can help your case because the company may be able to pay a larger amount of damages through its insurance policy. Even if the company did not act carelessly itself, it may be held vicariously liable for the driver’s negligence after an accident that occurred on the job.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases arise when a patient was injured because their health care provider did not do what a reasonable, competent health care provider in the same specialty would have done. In Texas, victims of medical malpractice have a specific amount of time in which they need to bring their case, or else it may not be allowed. This can be challenging because it may take some time for the injury to be discovered, and it is not always clear when it happened, in contrast to car or truck accidents. As a result, you should contact a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible if you suspect that you may have a claim.
