A Former Prosecutor Who Knows How to Fight These Charges
Felony defense attorney Lisa Shapiro Strauss is also a former prosecutor in Texas with over 15 years of experience practicing law. Her unique background enables her to anticipate how the state may approach your felony case. She can evaluate your situation from every angle to determine the best course of action.
We have extensive experience providing defense strategies for felony charges. Our experience includes the following:
- Felony assault
- Drug crimes (possession of drugs)
- Probation revocation
- Weapons charges
As a former prosecutor, Ms. Strauss understands the value of your case. She also understands that many cases are based on misinformation, improper police conduct and other errors in judgment. She fights hard to have improper evidence suppressed and cases dismissed.
A Knowledge of Alternative Sentencing Options
When dismissal is not an option in a felony criminal case, we will evaluate alternative sentencing options versus possible trial outcomes to determine which is in your best interest. Options may include:
- Deferred adjudicated probation. If you follow court-ordered steps, the conviction would not go on your record.
- Straight probation. If you follow court-ordered steps, you could stay out of prison.
- Plea bargain. Depending on the situation, we could negotiate a lesser charge or minimum sentencing requirement.
It is important that you comply with court orders. If you violate your terms of probation, you could face substantial penalties.
