Constitutional Rights & Criminal Proceedings

If you are arrested for allegedly committing a criminal offense in El Paso, remember you have certain rights. If those rights are violated, the charges against you may be dropped. In order to determine if your rights have been violated, you need to speak with a criminal defense lawyer who understands both state and federal law.

The legal proceedings in your case will depend on the type of case and the severity of the charges. For instance, a first-offense misdemeanor DWI (driving while intoxicated) charge is handled differently than a felony drug possession case. Both, however, are heavily prosecuted since Texas strictly enforces its laws. To understand the legal process, you need to speak with a criminal attorney about your case.

What to Do After You’ve Been Arrested

Criminal Defense Cases

Attorney Marco Aranda handles a wide range of criminal cases, including both misdemeanor and felony charges. He proudly represents clients throughout El Paso and the surrounding areas.

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is one of the most commonly charged offenses in the state. It can carry significant penalties, including jail time.

Assault offenses can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies depending on the circumstances of the case. It is important to discuss your case with an attorney to ensure you receive the best possible outcome in your case.

Charges related to domestic or family violence can be devastating. Upon conviction, many of your rights can be affected. A lawyer can review your case and determine the best course of action.

Drug charges are serious offenses that can lead to a state prison sentence if convicted. Without the help of a skilled defense attorney, you could serve the maximum sentence.

Misdemeanors are serious offenses that can lead to jail time if convicted. For too many people do not realize the far-reaching impact of a misdemeanor charge. It is important to remember that there are defenses that arise in most cases.

A conviction for a felony offense can result in a state prison sentence. With your freedom on the line, you cannot afford to not have legal representation.

If you fail to comply with a court order, you may be charged with one or more probation violations. An attorney can help recall any warranted related to these charges and resolve the matter in court.
