Pasadena, TX Criminal Defense Attorney
Over the past couple of decades, the City of Pasadena, Texas, has become one of the strongest working-class communities in Harris County–not to mention its second-largest city after Houston. With more than 150,000 residents, Pasadena enjoys the benefits of a large metropolitan area while retaining its smaller-town feel. This is borne out in the city’s overall crime rate, which is consistently ranked at or below the national average.
Unfortunately, crime is still a fact of life in Pasadena, and you may find yourself facing criminal charges ranging from drunk driving (DWI) to more serious felonies like assault or robbery. If that happens, you will need the advice and assistance of an experienced Pasadena, Texas, criminal defense attorney who knows the area and its court system. At the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates, we have the expertise to help you assert your innocence and ensure that the police and the courts respect your constitutional rights.
Have You Been Charged With Drunk Driving in Pasadena?
DWI and DUI are among the most common charges we assist clients with in the Pasadena area. For many of you, a drunk driving arrest will be your first direct interaction with the criminal justice system. We know this a frightening experience. That is why, at the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates, we will guide you through every stage of the process.
The most important thing to remember in any DWI case is you have certain rights that the police cannot violate. For instance, in most cases the police cannot force you to take a breath or blood test without your consent. But there are also non-criminal consequences for such refusal, notably the administrative suspension of your driver’s license. We can help you address these issues and work to resolve a drunk driving case in your favor.
