Accomplished criminal law attorneys assert the rights of accused individuals

When you’re facing a criminal charge, the authorities want you to believe that they have all the power. However, the knowledgeable Texas firm of Seigman, Starritt-Burnett & Sinkfield, PLLC will vigorously assert your rights and thoroughly investigate the facts to determine if the case against you is based on illegal police procedure or misleading evidence. From our office in Harker Heights, our firm assists clients in Bell and Coryell counties in all types of felony and misdemeanor matters so that they understand their legal options and have the support they need to fight for the best possible result.

Texas litigators take on prosecutors in felony and misdemeanor matters

  • Homicide — Whether you’re facing a capital murder charge or some other type of homicide count, it is essential to retain an attorney who delivers a formidable defense and is not intimidated by the authorities. Our firm handles vehicular homicide and manslaughter cases.
  • Sexual offenses — In rape cases and other matters connected to charges of sexual misconduct, we have the skill and sensitivity to deal with potentially relevant issues of consent and misidentification.

Waiting to obtain qualified legal counsel could lead to a mistake or an infringement upon your rights. Tom Seigman has 20 years of experience handling matters within the Bell County justice system and gives accused individuals the benefit of a free initial consultation so they can get immediate assistance.

Attorneys serving the Killeen and Copperas Cove area handle drug crime cases

The Texas Controlled Substances Act sets forth a wide range of offenses and punishments associated with the possession, sale and manufacture of drugs. Though punishments vary based on the particular substance involved and the amount seized, most possession cases are still treated as felony crimes in the state. Regardless of whether your particular case involves opiates, cocaine, “designer drugs” or the illegal use of a prescription pharmaceutical, we’ll take on overzealous police and prosecutors and battle to exclude improperly gathered evidence. When appropriate, our experienced lawyers will advocate for alternatives to incarceration, such as substance abuse treatment.

Thorough advocates represent motorists charged with drunk driving

A drunk driving charge usually comes without warning and accused motorists might not be familiar with factual and legal defenses that might be available for a DWI. Though you might believe that a failed sobriety test is the end of the story, a legally deficient stop or faulty test procedure could lead to a dismissal, acquittal or sentence reduction. We can identify potential flaws that might help you avoid a license suspension, fine and jail time.

Knowledgeable advisers help with the sealing and expungement of records

Misdemeanors and records of arrests that didn’t result in conviction from long ago shouldn’t haunt you years later. In many cases, Texans have the ability to have certain harmful items expunged from their record or sealed from public view. We can help you seek expunction of an alleged crime if you were acquitted, if the case was dismissed, or if an arrest did not lead to a formal charge and the pertinent statute of limitations has expired. Even if you were convicted of a misdemeanor, you might be able to obtain an order of nondisclosure if only a fine was assessed or enough time has passed.
