Don’t Let Criminal Charges Ruin Your Future

When you’re facing criminal charges, it is important to have an experienced attorney. My name is Phil Morin, and for the last 16 years, I have been helping clients throughout Texas navigate the complicated legal system. I can work together with you to figure out the best possible solution. As a former assistant district attorney, I can anticipate what is coming and use it to your advantage.

Experience In Many Different Practice Areas

Being convicted of a crime can have an impact on all areas of your life. To protect your career, your reputation and your family, you need representation you can trust. The consequences you are facing could affect you in both the short and long term. Whether you’re facing jail time and a fine or a criminal record as well, I am here to defend your rights every step of the way. I have handled many different types of cases, including:

Another way I can help is by providing bond services. By hiring an attorney to post your bail bond, you save both time and money. This also means that you have legal guidance from the beginning. Hiring an attorney for a bail bond can be especially effective when there is no bond set and there is a possibility that a judge may deny a bond. It’s also useful for someone who is facing an unreasonably high bond.

Frequently Asked Questions

I know how scary it must be when you are facing criminal charges. I can answer all your questions during a free consultation, but until then, please see below for answers to some common questions.

What should you do if you are arrested?

If you get arrested, it is important that you immediately speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Do not make any statements to law enforcement without an attorney present.

What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?

A felony is the most serious type of crime, including murder, assault, robbery and sexual assault. Punishment for felony crimes in Texas can range from high fines, lengthy prison sentences and community supervision. Felony convictions can also impact your life by preventing you from holding certain jobs, voting and carrying a weapon.

Misdemeanors are less serious crimes, including DWI offenses, drug possession and theft. The penalties for misdemeanors in Texas involve fines and jail time of less than one year.

If you are charged with a misdemeanor, do you need a lawyer?

Yes. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you ensure that your rights are protected and avoid a permanent mark on your criminal record. Having worked as a prosecutor, I know how to find weak points in the charges against you and respond appropriately.

Will your case go to trial?

Few criminal defense cases go to trial. More often, cases are resolved by plea bargaining. This consists of negotiations between the attorney and the prosecutor. After a review of the evidence against you, I would strive to negotiate the best possible outcome, including dismissal of your case or a reduction of charges.
