Domestic Violence

Houston Domestic Violence Lawyer | Attorney Greg Tsioros

Domestic Violence Charges Defense in Houston: Brazoria, Ft. Bend, Galveston, Harris & Montgomery Counties

Domestic violence charges are a very serious matter, often loaded with emotion and passion. An allegation of domestic violence has the potential for lifelong consequences for the defendant, the alleged victim and their family members. In Texas, a call to the police in relation to domestic assault will almost always result in an arrest of one of the parties involved.

Houston domestic violence defense attorney Greg Tsioros began his legal career as an intern for the Family Criminal Law Division of the Harris County District Attorney's office. He received extensive hands-on training in this area of the law, dealing with countless cases involving domestic violence charges of all degrees.

As a former Harris County prosecutor, Mr. Tsioros has unique insight into how the State handles and prepares domestic violence cases, and how they determine whether or not to file charges. In addition, attorney Greg Tsioros works closely with his clients to understand the circumstances surrounding the charges, and employs his experience to defend the rights and reputation of the accused.

If you are being investigated for domestic violence or have already been charged never agree to speak to the police without an attorney present. Investigators use many different tactics to elicit confessions and other incriminating statements from suspected offenders.

Houston domestic violence lawyer Greg Tsioros has extensive experience in defending clients from charges involving any type of domestic violence and assault charges as well. The guidance of a qualified attorney is imperative in the protection of your rights and the development of a proper defense against domestic violence charges in Houston, Texas.

Drug Charges Defense

Houston Drug Lawyer | Attorney Greg Tsioros

Drug Charges Defense in Houston: Brazoria, Ft. Bend, Galveston, Harris & Montgomery Counties

If you have been arrested on drug charges in or around Houston, the immediate retention of legal representation is a must - the consequences of a conviction can be life-changing, ranging anywhere from fines and community service to the forfeiture of property and jail time for more serious offenses.

Felony-Level Drug Crimes and Consequences

Whether you have been charged with possession or trafficking, or as a first-time or repeat offender, Houston drug attorney Greg Tsioros will guide you through the necessary steps to protect your constitutional rights. Most of the drug cases Mr. Tsioros handles are at the felony level and include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Possession of controlled substances
  • Delivery of controlled substances
  • Trafficking
  • Felony drug charges
  • Marijuana possession
  • Cocaine possession
  • Methamphetamines (Meth)
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Prescription drug cases

Dedicated in Handling Your Drug Possession Case

Search & Seizure

The defense of marijuana, cocaine, or other drug possession charges always begins with a focus on your rights, specifically search and seizure issues. A seasoned attorney will thoroughly review police reports and any other elements of the case that could help determine if your rights were violated in any way.

  • Did the police officer have grounds to stop you in the first place?
  • Did the police officer frisk you when you posed no safety threat?
  • Did the police officer search your vehicle without probable cause?
  • Did the authorities enter your home without a valid search warrant?

Houston drug lawyer Greg Tsioros knows that in any of these situations, the drug or drugs were seized unlawfully and can not be admitted as evidence against you, likely forcing the prosecution to dismiss the charges altogether.

Reasonable Doubt

Even if the seizure is valid, there may be insufficient evidence to show that you were in possession of the drugs. The possibility exists that you were in the vicinity of illegal drugs, but did not own them or didn't even know they were even on your premises. Affirmative links need to be established between you and the drugs. If these links are weak or can not be established, a good drug lawyer will raise reasonable doubt. If there is reasonable doubt in your marijuana or drug charge, attorney Greg Tsioros will seek to have the charges against you reduced or dismissed completely.

Options if Convicted for Drug Possession

If the evidence is strong against you on a drug possession charge, we will seek deferred adjudication. This way your future law-abiding activities can be rewarded with an order of non-diclosure, which will prevent your criminal record from being viewed by anyone but legal authorities. If your crime was a "one-time" occurrence and you keep yourself out of legal trouble, there is no reason that it should impact the rest of your life or affect your freedom. Shorter jail sentences and receiving credit for time served are options as well.

Being charged with a crime can be a frightening experience. Let the guidance of a qualified Houston defense attorney see you through the complex and potentially overwhelming legal process that lies ahead. If you have a pending criminal case and need legal representation, or if you anticipate criminal charges being filed against you in the future, please contact the law office of attorney Greg Tsioros for a free, no obligation consultation. Mr. Tsioros will be happy to consult with you over the phone or to schedule an office appointment for an in person consultation as well.

First Offense

First Offense | First Time Offenders | Houston Criminal Charges

Experienced Criminal Defense in Brazoria, Ft. Bend, Galveston, Harris & Montgomery Counties

Many of the clients that the attorney Greg Tsioros represents are first time offenders. If you have never been arrested or charged with a crime before, the whole process can be extremely overwhelming and in many cases, downright scary. Our job at the Law Office of Greg Tsioros is to help you sleep at night. We have years of experience working within the criminal justice system to get the best posssible results for all of our clients.

Early Intervention is the Key

Attorney Greg Tsioros has been very successful in negotiating with prosecutors prior to the arraignment, or formal filing of the charges. He is skilled at using your first-time offender status to your advantage - frequently preventing the filing of charges and often reducing felony charges to misdemeanors. It is critical to obtain legal representation by a skilled Houston defense attorney as early as possible. Mr. Tsioros will act quickly to intervene - presenting evidence on your behalf and establishing you as a first - and last - time offender to the prosecution. Failure to act quickly will almost always have consequences - inhibiting your defense attorney's ability to beat your charges early on in the case.

Charges Filed. What Now?

If formal charges have already been filed against you, it is more important than ever that you seek the guidance of a qualified Houston defense attorney. As a first time offender with a clean criminal record, you have many options for the successful resolution of your case. A pre-trial diversion program may be available depending on the county and nature of your criminal charges. These programs are generally offered for misdemeanor, non-violent first time offenses.

Plea Bargaining

If a pre-trial diversion is not an option, attorney Greg Tsioros will commence the plea bargaining process on your behalf. Your clean record will be used as a strong tool for leverage in the negotiation of your case. Mr. Tsioros will seek the most favorable conditions for your plea and explore every available option before accepting an offer from the prosecution.

Trial

In some instances, the state may decide not to make a plea offer that you or your defense attorney find acceptable. If you decide to take your case to trial, you need the expert advice of a former assistand District Attorney to guide you through the process. As he was once employed by the state, Houston defense attorney Greg Tsioros can anticipate the moves of the prosecution and establish a strong connect with the judge and/or jury.

Being charged with a crime can be a frightening experience. Let the guidance of a qualified Houston defense attorney see you through the complex and potentially overwhelming legal process that lies ahead. If you have a pending criminal case and need legal representation, or if you anticipate criminal charges being filed against you in the future, please contact the law office of attorney Greg Tsioros for a free, no obligation consultation. Mr. Tsioros will be happy to consult with you over the phone or to schedule an office appointment for an in person consultation as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

General Legal Questions and Answers Provided by Houston Criminal Lawyer Greg Tsioros

If I am eligible for probation, does that mean that I will automatically get probation?

No. Just because you are eligible for probation does NOT mean that you are entitled to probation. It is often the case that prosecutors will not offer you probation and the judge will likely not give you probation. Your defense attorney needs to be able to evaluate your case with you and explain to you the likelihood that you will get probation from the Judge or the Prosecutor.

I have successfully completed my deferred adjudication probation. Can I have my criminal record cleared?

This is a common misconception. Contrary to popular belief, a successful deferred adjudication probation sentence cannot be expunged, except in the case of certain class C misdemeanor offenses. However, depending on the particulars of your case, you may well be eligible for an order of nondisclosure.

I failed or refused to submit to a breath or blood test. Is my driver's license automatically suspended?

No. If you request hearing through the Administrative License Revocation (ALR) process within fifteen days of your arrest, your license will remain valid until the hearing takes place. It can often take several months to schedule a hearing. Your license will be valid at least until the date of the hearing. At the hearing the State must prove certain facts. If they fail to do so, your license will not be suspended.

What if I'm guilty of the charge? Do I still need a lawyer?

Absolutely. Your attorney is the only person with the knowledge and the motivation to get you through the legal system with the minimum amount of consequences. The prosecutor, the court clerks, and even the judge have their interests in mind, not yours. Quite often this means they will recommend what will save them the most time, not what will obtain the best result for you.

What is the process for getting out of jail once a person is arrested?

After being arrested a person will be booked into jail; followed by an arraignment; bail will be set, and once the bail money is paid a person will then be booked out.

What is an occupational driver's license, and why would I need one?

An occupational driver's license is a restricted license issued by DPS which allows you to drive to and from work, school and in the performance of necessary household duties during the period of suspension. The license may limit the times you are allowed to drive to specified hours, counties or roadways.

Can I get probation if I have a prior felony conviction?

You still may be given probation if the Judge decides that justice will be better served to grant you probation or if the District Attorney offers probation as a plea bargain.

What is the difference between Probation and Deferred Adjudication?

Probation results from a guilty finding and from a suspended sentence. Upon fulfilling the probation requirements, you will not be sent to prison or jail. In Deferred Adjudication, the Judge finds that there is enough evidence to find you guilty, but defers a guilty finding while he places you on community supervision, i.e. probation. In a regular probation, the maximum the Judge can sentence you to in prison is the number of years that you were given on probation. For example if you are on a straight probation for a felony drug charge and you received 3 years of probation, the maximum amount of time you can receive in prison if you are revoked is 3 years.

Being charged with a crime can be a frightening experience. Let the guidance of a qualified Houston defense attorney see you through the complex and potentially overwhelming legal process that lies ahead. If you have a pending criminal case and need legal representation, or if you anticipate criminal charges being filed against you in the future, please contact the law office of attorney Greg Tsioros for a free, no obligation consultation. Mr. Tsioros will be happy to consult with you over the phone or to schedule an office appointment for an in person consultation as well.
