The victims of sexual assault suffer many lasting consequences because of their experience. At our law firm, our team of sexual assault attorneys understands how sensitive these cases can be, so we approach them with care. In order to defend sexual assault cases, it’s imperative that a complete investigation is conducted. The background of the complainant must be investigated too as well as their family dynamics. We also must hear the entire retelling of the experience. We understand that this can be difficult, but it is necessary for us to defend you the best way possible.

When you’re facing a sexual offense charge, you need to know that you’re facing one of the most serious charges that you will ever see in your life. If you’re convicted of any kind of sexual offense, it’s likely to follow you around for the rest of your life. Besides having the obvious conviction on your record, you’ll likely have to mention it whenever you apply for a job to any potential employers, and depending on the nature of the offense, you might be forced to register as a sexual offender whenever you move to a new location.
All those negatives are before the prospect of any fines or jail time enter the equation, which means that a sexual offense case is not one that you can afford to lose. Here’s how the right attorney can help you prepare to earn the best possible outcome for your case.
When you start your search for a sexual offender attorney in Houston, you need to focus your search on an attorney who has the necessary experience and knowledge to provide the best defense possible for your case. The right attorney will not only know Texas laws regarding your specific situation, but will also have an idea of what cases are most relevant to crafting your defense. There are thousands of cases that have been argued over the years in the Lone Star State, and a good attorney will be able to pinpoint a case or two that is both relevant and helpful to your situation, if such a case exists.
Even a great legal argument won’t make a dent with a judge who isn’t receptive to the points that you’ve outlined in your strategy. A good attorney can use both his or her own experience in front of the judge and the results of past cases decided by that judge to fine-tune a strategy that’ll appeal to their interpretation of the law. Remember, judges are still human and will view the law through their own mentality. The right attorney will be able to use that to your advantage.
Sometimes, the facts are simply stacked against you and there’s nothing that any attorney can do to get you a not guilty verdict. But even then, the right attorney can work in your best interests through his or her relationships with the prosecution. If your lawyer has worked with the prosecutor for years and you’re facing a relatively minor charge, your lawyer could strike a deal that will lessen your sentence in exchange for a guilty plea. Even on more serious charges, there’s still a chance that with your cooperation and the right lawyer on your side, you can lessen the sentence you receive.
If you’ve been accused of sexual assault or you’ve been a victim of sexual assault, it’s important that you speak to a sexual assault attorney immediately before speaking to the police.
