Criminal Defense Attorney in Houston, Texas
At the Law Office of Q. Tate Williams, P.C., the clients' wishes come first. I am focused on pursuing the result that my clients want. Representing the accused is a collaborative process. The client's needs and goals are the cornerstone of a successful outcome. In any representation I find out what is important to the client, in order to determine how to approach the case. You can't have a strategy if you don't have a goal. Not all cases and clients are alike and I believe an attorney has to listen to their client to know what to say on their behalf.
In order to provide clients with the ability to make informed decisions about their case and achieve their goals, I conduct a full analysis of all the evidence and the law and advise my clients based upon my years of training and experience defending the accused. My review and evaluation often lead to identifying mistakes, weaknesses, and rights violations that can lead to a dismissal, acquittal, reduction in charges, or a plea agreement more favorable to the accused. While this may be an ongoing process, it is important that your defense begin as soon as possible. Early in a case, there are opportunities to take actions to protect your rights and identify and preserve favorable evidence that might otherwise be lost or overlooked. Whereas some attorneys may prefer to advise their clients to plead guilty or enter into a plea bargain when the client would rather fight, I am willing and able to go to trial. There are many cases that at first glance seem hopeless that result in an acquittal at trial, a dismissal, or acceptable plea offer on the day of trial or sooner once the government knows the accused is serious about their case and competently represented.
My firm can provide the legal representation that you need in most types of criminal cases, including but not limited to DWI, including defending people in the Houston area that have been convicted of
multiple DWI offenses. I manage the case throughout the
DWI process, and am committed to helping you fight any and all
DWI penalties, including driver's license suspension.
I take special concern in defending those accused of underage DWI, or felony DWI and am familiar with challenging both breath & blood tests in court.
If you were charged based upon the administration of field sobriety tests, these are frequently incorrectly administered and unfairly interpreted. Challenges to these tests are often the centerpiece of attacking the basis of the probable cause for a DWI arrest in driver's license hearings and the criminal trial.
An Experienced Attorney You Can Count On
If you are facing charges related to any drug crimes, whether
trafficking, it is crucial that you contact an experienced attorney like myself to begin to defend your case. If you wish to get an
expunction or seal your criminal record, you should contact an attorney with the knowledge and experience to determine if you are eligible and, if so, handle it correctly and promptly. I can defend you against almost any
juvenile crime, or
sex crime, including serious felony charges related to
sex with a minor,
child abuse. Those who are accused of
family assault need an experienced and aggressive defense, and I am prepared to present it on your behalf. I also am committed to pursuing a positive outcome in cases of
theft including charges of
robbery. I am very familiar with defending
white collar crime accusations, and have the professional resources to call upon that are necessary when defending against serious financial crimes, either in state or federal court. I also can assist you if you are accused of a
The justice system is a dehumanizing experience, and it is crucial that you have the guidance and support of a criminal defense attorney who actually cares about the outcome of your case. This is often the most embarrassing and stressful event in the lives of many accused. Part of my job is to counsel my clients through the process, and often, by re-humanizing them to the prosecutors, the courts, and juries, we are able to achieve a favorable case outcome.
