Theft, burglary, and criminal trespassing are all similar in nature, but have very specific distinctions and three different charges.
Under the Texas Penal Code, criminal mischief involves tampering with, damaging, or destroying property.
Disorderly conduct is a criminal offense in Texas that refers to a crime committed against public order and decency.
If you and your spouse, partner, or other family member has a volatile relationship, you could find yourself in legal trouble after an altercation.
In Texas, convictions for drug offenses carry stiff penalties, including fines and jail time even for first-time offenders.
Texas classifies its theft offenses according to the value of the stolen property or services and sometimes, by the type of property taken.
Prostitution and solicitation are two separate crimes and a sex act does not have to occur to be charged.
Alcohol and drug-related traffic offenses, commonly known as driving while intoxicated (DWI), are frequently prosecuted criminal offenses in Texas.
Getting arrested has the potential to cause negative effects for the rest of your life, even if the criminal charges against you are dropped.
Texas is widely recognized as one of the harshest states when it comes to criminal penalties, and this includes misdemeanors.
If you knowingly, intentionally, or recklessly carry on your person a handgun, club, or illegal knife, you can be prosecuted for the Class A Misdemeanor.
As an older adult with a Class A CDL and a clean driving history, I recently found myself in a stressful situation with back to back tickets and my first ever accident. I searched through dozens of highly rated Attorneys to find someone to that would speak with me about my dilemma. I finally chose Mr. Rubin, who took the time to visit with me, develop a plan of action and accomplish it. Mr. Rubin didn't sugar coat it. He explained all the possibilities and the actions it would take to achieve the goal. I felt very relieved after our first meeting and I knew then that he was a man of integrity. I am happy to report the plan was executed with precision. I have a lot of respect for Mr. Rubin and will gladly recommend him to anyone in need of professional representation.
I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. Mr Rubin went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I recommend him and will definitely use his services again. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney.
As I am a lawyer myself, I can truly recommend James as a fantastic lawyer. James excels in his practice area and was truly able to help me because he knows the law, the local court system and the prosecutors well. James was always responsive to me. He was patient in answering all my questions and took the time to discuss matters with me. I truly recommend James.
I truly so thankful for Mr. Rubin. i was pretty worried about going to court last minute by myself, not knowing what i going to say or do. Mr. Rubin reached out, and really made a huge effort the same day of my court date to find out all the information about my case, and ended up getting it dismissed. im very very grateful!!!
Just the best!Willian
He solved my case super fast and very efficiently! Was very clear on everything I needed to do so I didn't have any doubts throughout the process! 11/10 would recommend
I have used Mr. Rubin for several of my cases as well as my husbands. DISMISSED all the time!!! He has always been very Professional and straight forward with AMAZING results. I know i can count on him and i will keep recommending him to all my family and friends.
Professional, attentive and got the job done.John
Though not for a traffic violation, I hired Mr Rubin to clear up some criminal records from my youth that were making things difficult for me. He met with me and assured me all of those records could be removed. After getting all the information from me he kept in touch, letting me know the process and status, and after not to long all of the records were gone, making life much easier for me.
Mr. Rubin is very professional and a likable guy. I don't get a lot of traffic tickets, but if I ever do again I will retain his services, an dI certainly will use him again for other matters as well, though I hope that's never needed!
James was referred to me by a friend, and I am so happy that I hired him to represent me. He got my case dismissed quickly and efficiently without even leaving the house. He was very responsive and easy to communicate with via text or phone when needed. I highly recommend him.
FANTASTIC REPRESENTATION!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!Vanessa
YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH JAMES RUBIN!!! He handled my case with such professionalism and kept me at ease during the whole process!! I was so stressed out, but he kept me informed and always discussed all my options. I did not lose any sleep worrying about my case, because I knew I was in good hands. The result of my case was a DISMISSAL! I couldn't have been happier!! Hopefully I won't be needing his services again, but if I do, I again would HIGHLY RECOMMEND JAMES RUBIN!
Man of the PeopleBeau
James represented me in court not more than 2 montages ago. I could tell by the way he enteracted with the prosecutors and other lawyers that he was well respected and well liked. I even overheard one of the prosecutors speaking to his good reputation with one of her colleagues. My case was cut and dry and James kept me well informed on the process of things during the long morning session. He formulated a defense and advised me of my rights and our plan of action as the morning drug on. The prosecutors wanted to make a deal with him but our defense was solid and he advised against it. They ultimately dropped the case. I Couldn’t have asked for a better outcome and I Will defiantly be using him again if needed.
Came through when it looked like all was lostJosh
Mr. Rubin fought for me when the odds were stacked against me. His perseverance for me and doing what was right won through. He got my case dismissed and I walked out without any residual effects on my record. I will recommend him to anyone I come across that needs a lawyer.
Diligent and EffectiveVictor
Mr. Rubin is the perfect lawyer to handle your criminal case. He was very clear from the beginning on what my options were and was able to get me a favorable outcome. His lines of communication were always open and he kept me up to date with everything as it unfolded. I highly recommend his services.
Great lawyer, worth every penny.Marvin
Best of the best. From the beginning consultation to the final day, Mr. Rubin was up front, and made me feel like more than just another client. There was never a point where I was unaware of how things were going, and there was never any unanswered questions. High integrity, professional, and knowledgeable, Mr. Rubin is the real deal.
Was very fortunate to have received the support of James Rubin in my case. He set my expectations from the very beginning and kept an open line of communication throughout the process. A lot of lawyers work hard to attain the business and than once the ink dries, they’re nowhere to be found. Not Mr. Rubin, he was as attentive on the last day of our business arrangement as he was on day 1. Wouldn’t think twice of hiring him again if deemed necessary.
James and his office have continuously provided excellent service, demonstrating professionalism and personal attention to all details of my cases. James’s attitude and thoroughness to the work he does, not only saved me money, it also helped me to avoid any potential future issues I could not foresee. As human being, we naturally want to fix the issue at hand and do not always think of future complications. However, James and his team have the knowledge to be able to foresee potential issues, they are experienced enough to help prevent them, and be able to give the right advice in a timely manner. My first interaction with James was almost 8 years ago (September of 2011 to be exact) and I swear by him to this day. My advice to any potential client looking for amazing representation remains the same: If you decide to hire a lawyer whose goals and interest align with yours, talk to James Gregory Rubin and you will never regret it.
Such an amazing lawyer!Sandra
Last month I received a class C theft citation, it was going to go on my record and I was really wanting to avoid that. When I went to my consultation, James made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions, he also made it clear that I had nothing to worry about and everything was going to be fine. James was very polite throughout the whole process and when I hired him, he spoke to the prosecutor very quickly and worked something out for me. We took care of the requirements and went to court to get my ticket dismissed and will be getting it expunged. He took care of my situation extremely well and everything was smooth. I definitely recommend him!
I had a hiccup this past month where I needed the help of an attorney. I got referred to Mr. Rubin by another attorney and couldn’t be any happier with his services! He was very responsive and followed up with any concerns I had. He walked me through the process and gave me realistic expectations of potential outcomes. While I wanted him to guarantee me an outcome (like a previous consultation had), he said that he wanted me to be ready for any possibilies, which I greatly appreciate. He listened to me and genuinely cared about helping me resolve my case. I can’t give him enough praises, as he went above and beyond to ensure everything was taken care of. In the end, my case was dismissed due to his diligent work! Thanks again, Mr. Rubin!
He is the BESTFadi
This guy is outstanding. It took him 2 days to resolve my case and have this all taken care off. Everything was a smooth from sending the contract via email, quick response time via text/phone calls and sending me the dismiss letter from the court regarding my traffic ticket. Will recommend James to anyone who is looking for a guy who is no fluff or BS just result oriented.
Results better than what I had hoped for!Casey
When I found myself in need of a criminal attorney, I truly did not know where to start. I decided to do multiple free consultations. James immediately stood out. In my gut I felt more at ease with him than any of the other lawyers I met with. He was genuine and honest. Just to give you an idea, some of the other guys I met with were using scare tactics to try and pressure me into making a decision on the spot. In hindsight, I am so glad I didn’t buckle under the pressure and hire one of the other guys. Upon hiring James as my lawyer he immediately got to work and was proactive about tackling my “issue”. I didn’t even know that dismissal may be an option. I will forever be grateful to him for getting my case dismissed. I was never unable to reach James at any point over the past month. More often than not he initiated the communication and kept me informed or just reassured. I will not hesitate in the future to use James again (let’s hope I don’t need to) or to recommend him to someone else.
Thank you Mr. RubinVince
A friend recommended Mr. Rubin when I needed help with my traffic ticket and I’m so glad they did. Mr. Rubin is very professional, he explained every step, and he always made me feel like my case was in good hands. Plus, he got my ticket dismissed! I’ll definitely refer Mr. Rubin to my friends and family.
