It is extremely important to hire the right Hays County criminal defense attorney. Crimes in Hays County, Texas, are not taken lightly and are prosecuted aggressively.

We Can Help You Fight Your Charges

While there are some misdemeanors and lower-level prosecutions, a lot of the serious criminal charges we see are at the felony level, meaning there is a substantial risk of 5, 10, or even 20-40 years in prison if convicted. A knowledgeable defense attorney will understand the nuances of the law and can get to work immediately in assessing the facts and building your defense.

We can craft a solid defense to criminal charges that include:

  • Felonies and Misdemeanors
  • Assault and Family Violence
  • Driving While Intoxicated
  • Drug Possession

Many crimes we see in court are felony offenses that carry the possibility of years in prison and hefty monetary penalties. You can anticipate a sentence ranging from 5-40 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines if you are convicted. In addition, you stand to lose your gun rights and could face employment and housing challenges. Don’t risk losing everything. Call Cofer & Connelly, PLLC for help.
