Clear Lake Criminal Defense Attorney
Clear Lake City is one of the largest planned communities in the greater Houston metropolitan area. Adjacent to the world-famous Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center and a number of top aerospace companies–as well as the University of Houston-Clear Lake–the Clear Lake region has also gained prominence in recent years as a cultural center. And if you live within the Clear Lake area and find yourself in trouble with the law, the local criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates can help.
Have You Been Charged With DWI or DUI in Clear Lake City?
Drunk driving offenses are perhaps the most common type of criminal arrest we deal with. Even a first-time DWI or DUI can have serious repercussions, including the loss of your driver’s license and possible jail time. And if you were traveling with a child–a minor under the age of 15–at the time of your DWI arrest, you will face enhanced penalties.
Many Clear Lake residents do not understand their constitutional rights in a DWI or DUI situation. They mistakenly think they will be able to simply talk their way out of an arrest. But local law enforcement is well trained to spot the potential signs of drunk driving–as well as elicit incriminating answers from suspects.
Remember, you have a constitutional right to remain silent when questioned by police regarding any criminal charge. You also have the right to the assistance of a qualified Clear Lake criminal defense attorney. You will not “look guilty” by hiring an attorney. To the contrary, the best way to assert your innocence and ensure you are treated fairly is to work with a lawyer who understands the criminal justice system inside and out.
We Provide Full-Service Criminal Defense Representation
In addition to drunk driving cases, the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates provides full-service criminal defense representation to people accused of all types of felonies and misdemeanors, including but not limited to the following:
- Assault and battery
- Domestic Violence
- Drug Crimes
- Murder and Manslaughter
- Traffic Violations
- White Collar Crimes
Regardless of the specific charge, in any criminal prosecution the burden is on the district attorney to prove every element of the alleged offense beyond a reasonable doubt. We will hold the police and prosecution to that standard and do everything in our power to resolve a criminal matter in your favor. While it may be possible to negotiate a plea to a lesser charge or seek probation in lieu of jail time, if necessary we are ready and willing to go to trial.
But we cannot do anything until you contact us and ask for help.
