Accused Or Arrested?

Shelander Law Offices Can Help

A criminal defense attorney has a duty to protect his or her client's constitutional rights. No matter what the crime, every American has the right to certain protections, including the right to not incriminate themselves and the right to hire professional legal help.

At Shelander Law Offices, we will do everything possible to reach a favorable outcome in your case, working tirelessly to reduce the charges against you or eliminate them altogether. From thoroughly investigating the circumstances to making sure all police procedures were followed during your arrest, we offer our clients representation backed by years of knowledge and experience.

Felonies Vs. Misdemeanors

Our attorneys in Beaumont represent clients in a range of criminal charges, including:

  • Drunk driving and DUI defense
  • Theft, shoplifting, robbery and burglary
  • Drug offenses (possession and/or distribution)
  • Sex crimes
  • Assault and murder
  • Weapons and firearm charges
  • White collar crimes, including forgery and fraud
  • Domestic violence

When you are charged with any of the crimes above, your penalties depend on whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony.

More minor crimes are considered misdemeanors, and can be punished by hefty fines or up to a year in jail. Felonies, on the other hand, are very severe. They include murder charges, assault and burglary, and punishments can range from time in high security prisons to the death penalty. If you are facing a felony charge, it is important that you seek immediate legal help.

If you are facing a criminal charge, it is important that you seek a lawyer as soon as you are arrested or when you learn of an accusation against you. It is never recommended that you represent yourself, as criminal cases can be complex and often require an in-depth knowledge of the law.
