Danny pays attention to detail and gets things done and is very professional. When first meeting Danny he was very warm, and heart felt. He made me feel very comfortable in coming to him. When we do stupid things in our life we feel down and embarrassed at times, but Danny put me at ease and let me know things will be better. I was able to call Danny at any time of the day and he would answer for the most part and if not, he would return the call in a timely manner. He helped me through the entire process, and we had a great turn out on the case. He knew all the legal services and was knowledgeable about what the law was in resolving my case. His office and himself were always in contact with me letting me know what was going on and if I needed to be in court at any time. I highly recommend Danny.

Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered
Q. I've been wrongfully acussed and charged on a felony in 2016 and in 2022 was arrested on a failure to appear on this
A: The first question I have is, has the warrant for your failure to appear been resolved? Secondly, did the DA seek a second indictment for bail jumping? Assuming your warrant has been resolved on the initial case, and assuming there is not an additional indictment pending for bail jumping, you should be back to square one on the original 2016 felony indictment. You need to get your case placed back on the court's docket, and file the appropriate motions requesting the discovery for which you are entitled. If no plea bargain can be reached, I would next suggest that you request either a jury trial, or bench trial. I don't know enough about the allegations to suggest any further action. You need to discuss with a competent criminal defense attorney who can assist in answering specific questions, and if necessary, represent you in the matter.
Q. How is evidence introduced at a criminal trial and at the same time protecting a client's rights?
A: All evidence in a criminal trial is either admitted, or excluded, pursuant to The Texas Rules of Evidence, The Texas Penal Code, and The Texas Rules of Criminal Procedure. It's the obligation of the court, as gatekeeper, to determine the admissibility, or inadmissibility, of all evidence which is offered in trial. The protection of a client's rights generally lands squarely on the shoulders of his/her attorney.
Q. Can I file a lawsuit against someone who stole property from my house? The DA is dragging their feet
A: The answer is "yes", but I would speak to the prosecutor handling your case before filing your civil suit. A civil lawsuit running parallel to a criminal prosecution can be used by the defense in the criminal case to show the complainant's motive. In other words, if a Judge or Jury see the complainant as an individual seeking to gain financially from the event that is the subject of both the criminal case, and the civil case, that could be viewed unfavorably, and create a credibility issue.
