Petitions and Orders for Non-Disclosure

Under the Texas law, you may file a Petition for Non-Disclosure requesting that the record related to your case be sealed, in most cases, if you were placed on deferred adjudication community supervision, completed it successfully, and as a result had your case dismissed. If you plead guilty, however, and were sentenced to straight prison time or jail time, without it being a condition of deferred adjudication community supervision, or you plead guilty and were placed on regular community supervision, you are not eligible for an Order of Non-Disclosure. To successfully get an Order of Non-Disclosure in Texas, there are often times waiting periods after you successfully complete deferred adjudication community supervision. Attorney Jason Trumpler can help you with this process and ultimately assist you with the Petition for Non-Disclosure. Read More

Expunctions (Expungements)

Under certain circumstances, you may be able to have a DWI accusation expunged from your record. These circumstances include acquittal, an arrest without charge, and pardon following conviction. If these situations do not apply, you may still be able to attain non-disclosure. If your records have been expunged, or if you have attained non-disclosure, you are not required to report charges on job applications or in a court of law. Because the expunction process can be complex, it is best to seek legal counsel. Read More

Bail and Release

If you or a loved one has been arrested, a judge will set a bail amount intended not as a punishment, but as a deterrent to fleeing town before trial. Unfortunately, bail is often set at an extremel high rate. At Trumpler Law, associates answer the phones 24 hours a day, and will immediately begin to work on posting bail and obtaining your release from jail.

Marijuana Crimes

Though many states have tempered marijuana laws and others have even legalized the drug, in Texas, the use, possession, and distribution of marijuana is still a serious crime. Depending on the amount involved, it could even result in a felony charge, meriting 5 to 99 years in prison. Successfully fighting marijuana charges requires an aggressive legal defense team.

Assault and Violent Crimes

Assault refers to intentional or reckless bodily harm to another person. Though it is classified as a misdemeanor charge, it still carries grave penalties and can be one of the most complicated types of criminal defense. Charges can also be heightened if the assault was committed against a family member, involved the use of a deadly weapon, or caused serious bodily harm.

Assault and Family Violence

“Family violence” refers both to assault against a family member and dating violence. Even a first-time conviction can result in a one-year jail sentence and $4,000 in fines. Fortunately, Jason Trumpler has years of experience defending clients against these types of charges, and it is often hard for the prosecution to prove guilt due to a lack of concrete evidence.

Firearms and Weapons

Unlawful possession of firearms and weapons is a felony crime, but unfortunately the difference between legal and illegal possession is often confusing. You may have been accused of weapons charges because of an unlawful search of your home or vehicle. If this is the case, Jason Trumpler may be able to have your charge thrown out because of blatant Constitutional violations.
