Felony Charges / Alleged Felony Arrest Charges
Austin Texas Criminal Defense Attorney
David Frank provides legal services to people charged with criminal offenses in
State and Federal Courts in the State of Texas. Extremely serious felony charges
include murder, aggravated assault, aggravated sexual
assault and aggravated robbery. Life in prison is a possible punishment for
all of these state felony crimes. Other felonies, such as burglary of a
habitation, are first degree felonies in Texas and the range of punishment
includes life in prison. If you have been charged with or are under
investigation for theft charges, felony charges of
conspiracy, credit card or any other felony arrest charges, you need to
take the matter very seriously.
At law office of David Frank, Mr. Frank listens to his clients. Many
times, they are at the wrong place at the wrong time. Other times he can protect
their rights through motions to dismiss or motions to suppress illegally
obtained evidence. He challenges cases on procedural errors and lack of probable
cause as well.
A felony charge is a life changing event and threatens your freedom. Arrest for
a felony of any kind is a serious matter and calls for aggressive negotiation
and trial strategies of a seasoned criminal defense attorney. Convictions in
felony criminal cases can result in the loss of many of the rights you now enjoy, as well as the loss of freedom.
Many people who are arrested for a felony wait too long to hire a
criminal defense attorney. They are unaware
that a criminal defense attorney can, under some circumstances in some criminal
cases, take steps that may lead to a client never being charged with a felony or
arrested for a felony. The time to consult with a criminal defense attorney is
the instant you know you are under investigation for a felony. If you wait until
you have been arrested for a felony, one important window of opportunity to
improve your situation has been closed.
Some people are arrested during the alleged commission of a felony and cannot
know to hire a lawyer before their felony arrest. In these cases, time is still
of the utmost importance. Even if you have been arrested, you have not been
formally charged with a crime until your case is heard by the grand jury and it
returns an indictment charging you with a felony. This is another important
window of opportunity for an experienced criminal trial lawyer to negotiate with
law enforcement, district attorney and appeal to the grand jury before they
decide whether or not to charge you in a criminal case.
When you are under arrest for a felony, you are placed in jail, and you and your
family will need an attorney to work on your behalf to secure your release.
Although not always possible, in most criminal cases, the amount of bond you are
required to pay for your release can be reduced by your criminal defense
attorney by personally talking with or appearing before a judge. He will work
with the bonding company to secure your release as quickly as possible.
If you have been indicted by a grand jury, you have been formally charged with a
felony and it is imperative that you consult with a criminal trial lawyer
immediately if youíve not already done so. If you havenít yet been arrested,
felony arrest is imminent. At this stage, your lawyer may be able to make
arrangements to avoid the felony arrest by going through the processes of
booking in and posting bail at an arranged time. It is extremely important that
a defendant in a criminal defense case be out of jail while awaiting trial so
that he can assist the defense lawyer in preparing his case for trial.
Prosecutors are less inclined to make good plea bargains for incarcerated
defendants, and in Travis County, it can take a year or longer to finally get to
The final stage before a felony case goes to trial is one of intense
negotiations between your lawyer and the district attorney or federal prosecutor
in charge of your criminal case.
Mr. Frank has years of experience in working with prosecutors and is a
skilled and aggressive negotiator. The importance of plea negotiations cannot be
overstated, because arriving at a successful plea bargain, if possible, will
avoid a trial. Sometimes, this is the best alternative.
Throughout the entire process of your criminal defense case, Attorney David
Frank will stand up for you and protect your rights under Texas law. To
