League City Criminal Defense Attorney
Board-Certified Specialist in Criminal Law for League City Defendants
The police and prosecutors in League City are very busy. Crime never slows down, and prosecutors make the front-page of the newspaper whenever they bring charges in a high-profile case. But for the typical person, the days following an arrest are confusing. They have no idea what to do or who to call. And they can’t get answers to any of their questions, like when they can finally go home.
Now is the time to contact a League City criminal defense attorney. Tad Nelson has helped many people like you navigate the Texas criminal justice system. Based on his years of practice, he knows how to defend criminal cases the right way. Make no mistake: these cases are often winnable. Many defendants are wrongly charged or over-charged with more serious crimes than the facts support.
If you contact The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates today, we can immediately begin representing you. There is nobody in the criminal justice system—not the judge, not the prosecutor—who has your back like your own attorney does. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.
We Defend Drunk Driving Charges in League City
Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a common criminal offense, with dozens of defendants appearing before a League City judge every day of the week. Tad Nelson has handled every type of DWI case imaginable and knows these cases inside and out. Just a few of the articles his firm has produced on this subject include:
- Alcohol Impairment Chart;
- Avoid These Common DWI Mistakes;
- Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUID);
- Driving While License Suspended (DWLS);
- Field Sobriety Tests;
- Intoxicated Manslaughter;
- Loss of Commercial License;
- What are the Penalties?; and
- Will My License be Suspended?.
Whether this is your first DWI charge or subsequent one, you need an attorney in your corner. A conviction brings all sorts of problems, including a license suspension, increased fees, and inflated insurance costs. Don’t give up without a fight.
We Defend Serious Felonies in League City
A felony is the most serious criminal charge in Texas. Any felony charge could result in time in jail and a big fine. Felons also run the risk of losing certain civil rights, like the ability to vote or possess a firearm.
Tad Nelson and his team can defend anyone accused of a felony, such as:
- Aggravated Crimes;
- Drug Charges;
- Capital Murder Charges;
- Violent Crimes; and
- Weapons Charges.
There is no reason to wait before reaching out to an attorney. Prosecutors give suspected felons very few breaks, but we can home in on the weaknesses in the state’s case if given enough time.
We Defend Sex Crimes in League City
A single allegation of a sex crime is enough to ruin a person’s reputation. Fighting back aggressively is really the only option. Many of these cases rest on weak evidence, so it is possible to get charges dismissed while defending your good name. Tad Nelson and his team have defended people accused of:
- Internet Pornography;
- Internet Sex Crimes;
- Online Solicitation of a Minor;
- Prostitution and Solicitation;
- Sexual Assault;
- Sex Crime Investigations;
- Sexual Misconduct
- Sex Offender Registration; and
- Sexual Offenses Against Children.
Never voluntarily turn over your computer or your phone. Instead, make the police get a search warrant and work for their evidence.
We Defend Against White Collar Crimes in League City
Although white collar crimes don’t get a lot of attention, any conviction is serious. A white collar crime typically is one committed for financial gain. Increasingly, prosecutors enjoy bragging about their white-collar crime convictions for things like:
- Credit Card Fraud;
- Insurance Fraud;
- Money Laundering;
- Mortgage Fraud;
- Multi-Level Marketing Schemes; and
- Tax Crimes.
Although these aren’t violent offenses, penalties are steep. Business executives and other upstanding members of the community can be ruined by an allegation of white collar crime. Defend yourself vigorously.
We Defend a Broad Array of League City Crimes
Our experience is so deep and broad we can help anyone accused of virtually any crime in League City. We have helped people accused of:
- Criminal Mischief;
- Domestic Violence;
- Federal Crimes;
- Grand Jury Proceedings;
- Human Trafficking;
- Juvenile Offenses;
- Misdemeanor Crimes;
- Probation Violations;
- Theft; and
- Traffic Violations.
Although some of these are misdemeanor offenses, any conviction warrants a bold defense. It is possible to face time in jail, community supervision, and a restraining order. We help you gain a better understanding of the law and how we can defend you.
Tad Nelson knows that League City criminal defense charges don’t require a “one size fits all” approach. Instead, he brings his experience to bear when reviewing all evidence in a case. His firm doesn’t raise a defense unless it’s supported by the evidence. What works in one case might not work in yours—and vice versa.
Some common defenses we raise include:
- Illegal search and seizure
- Unduly suggestive lineups and photo arrays
- Coerced confessions
- Failure to give Miranda warnings
- Lack of knowledge you were committing a crime
- Mistaken identity
- Tampered physical evidence
- Reasonable doubt
The prosecutor has the burden of convincing a jury you are guilty of an offense. Sometimes all we need to do is poke some holes in the state’s case and we can secure an acquittal. In many cases, however, it’s better to present a competing interpretation of events to counter the prosecutor’s evidence. We might even point the finger at the true criminal who isn’t even charged.

I hired them a while back for a DWI out in Harris County, they're good and if you need help with any kind of legal matter, give em a call. For a lawyer, Tad has a great personality so working with him should be easier than working with other lawyers.
He is the one lawyer that I can call and put my trust into. We’ve used him a couple of times, once for a family matter and another time for a troubled relative. He’ll help, tell you the truth with no sugar-coating, and will work for his salt. He’s a good guy and when you go to their office, they make you feel at home, like you’re part of the team. Good lawyers and great folks.
I've had the pleasure of working with Tad personally as a technology consultant for him in the past. We've eaten lunch and dinner together. I know that Tad is very dedicated to his clients and cares for them off the clock. He's definitely the lawyer you want on your side.
