Criminal Defense

Dallas Criminal Attorney

There is no question that the Texas criminal justice system can be intimidating to those who are not experienced. If you have been charged with any crime, or if you have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or driving while intoxicated, you may be frightened and unsure of what your rights are. For many people, a DWI or DUI is their first arrest and criminal charge.

Even though a DWI may not seem like a serious crime, it can result in serious consequences. The consequences may include jail time, substantial fines, or a permanent loss of driving privileges, especially if you are a repeat offender. Our lawyer will work to make sure that your rights and driving privileges are properly defended, both in court and before the Department of Public Safety (DPS). In addition to the court-imposed consequences, many people with DWI or DUI convictions on their records find it difficult or even impossible to find motor vehicle insurance except at grossly increased premiums. Therefore, our criminal lawyer, Murray L. Bristol (former Felony Prosecutor) will require the State to show him that it can prove its case under the law.

In addition to drunk driving, DUI, and DWI charges, he handles all types of criminal cases, including such offenses as

  • Drug crimes-possession with intent to sell, manufacturing, or trafficking
  • Assault
  • Burglary
  • Larceny
  • Embezzlement
  • Theft
  • Expunctions or Non-disclosures
  • Shoplifting

Murray will work to defend your rights in criminal court and through trial if necessary to prevent a conviction. As former criminal Assistant District Attorneys, he knows both sides of criminal law; therefore, he has the unique knowledge of how prosecutors think and how best to defend your criminal case.  He has the knowledge and skill to handle any type of criminal offense, from the smallest misdemeanor to the most serious felony.

Bristol & Dubiel LLP also understands that sometimes people have made mistakes in the past and would like their criminal records to be erased from the public to view. Therefore, if eligible, we can file a Petition for Expunction to destroy or expunge all your records of a criminal case that was dismissed. If you do not qualify for an expunction to erase your criminal records we can look into filing a Petition for Non-Disclosure. If you received deferred probation on certain offenses, the law now allows you to prevent the disclosure of your criminal records to the public after a set amount of time has passed since your probation ended.
