“I recently hired Vinas & Graham to handle my criminal defense on two cases. During the process they were always respectful and treated me with dignity. They were on top of the cases at all times and were actually able to have both cases dismissed. I would recommend their services to anyone who find themselves in a similar situation.” – PM

DWI (Driving While Intoxicated)

A DWI conviction in Houston, Texas can haunt you for many years. Even a first-time offense can lead to jail time and/or fines. Should you plead guilty and hope for mercy? Should you plead not guilty and try to defend yourself?

Only an attorney with many years of experience fighting DWI convictions can review your case and decide the best way to handle it. As soon as possible after your arrest, you should ask to review the evidence collected against you.

The experienced attorneys at Vinas & Graham, PLLC will review this evidence and advise you on the best way to proceed to minimize the impact of a conviction or even avoid one altogether.

Drug Crime Charges

In Texas, you could be charged with a felony or misdemeanor depending on the type and amount of drugs the police say you had. Drug crimes are prosecuted in the state and federal courts in Texas. You could face a sentence as severe as life in prison if convicted of a drug crime, so you want experienced attorneys on your side to fight for your rights.

Joe Vinas taught hundreds of police officers at both the Houston Police Academy and Tomball Police Department the constitutional requirements for proper arrest, search, and seizure. While assigned to the Public Integrity Division at the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, Spence Graham investigated and prosecuted police officers who abused their entrusted authority.

Weapons Charges

Despite open carry laws in Texas, you can still be arrested for having a weapon in certain circumstances. Even having a concealed handgun license (CHL) does not guarantee that you can’t be charged with unlawfully carrying weapons (UCW).

Even a misdemeanor weapons charge can result in jail time or fines in Houston, so you want experienced lawyers on your side defending you. Vinas & Graham, PLLC have years of experience defending people against weapons charges.

Their over 30+ years of combined experience could save you fines or jail time while upholding your rights.
