Fraud Attorney San Antonio, TX

Aggravated Assault Lawyer in San Antonio, TX

Attorney Albert A. Flores has extensive experience in criminal cases. He has handled multiple cases, trials, and complex motions in counties throughout the State of Texas. It can often be an advantage to have outside counsel representing you. He has extensive personal experience in cases involving the following:


Drug Cases: Possessing, selling, or transporting illegal drugs are all serious crimes under Texas law that often carry harsh mandatory minimum sentences. Mr. Flores can show the court that there is not enough evidence to convict you of the charges as filed. Depending on the nature of the alleged crime, he may be able to help you get the charges dismissed, win a verdict of not guilty, or even access a treatment program if that is what you need.


Sexual Assault: Crimes of a sexual nature are seen as abhorrent, but they can be very difficult for the prosecution to prove. Mr. Flores understands how to help the jury interpret the evidence and understand your side of the story. He can assist in the defense against all kinds of sexual assault charges, including aggravated sexual assault and child sexual assault.


Aggravated Assault: Aggravated assault is the attempt to cause severe bodily harm to another person or to act in a reckless or purposeful way that runs a serious risk of causing severe bodily harm. These charges are extremely serious, and state and local prosecutors will pursue them to the fullest extent of the law. Mr. Flores can help you mount a defense by pointing out the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. He can help to create reasonable doubt that you caused bodily harm or that you did so knowingly or recklessly.


Controlled Substances: Possessing or delivering controlled substances, including prescription drugs which were not legally prescribed to you, is seen as a serious crime and can have harsh penalties attached to it. Mr. Flores is here to assist you in your case. He can seek to suppress the prosecution’s evidence and introduce the court to your side of the story. Depending on the exact circumstances, he’ll work to get your charges dropped or dismissed.


Murder: Murder is often listed as one of the most heinous crimes, and it carries a sentence of lengthy prison time or even death. If you have been charged with murder or attempted murder, Mr. Flores can provide you with the vigorous defense you need to protect your freedom and your life. By challenging the prosecution’s evidence and working to create reasonable doubt, he can help you to win a not guilty verdict, get the charges dismissed, or plead down to a lesser charge.


Family Violence: Family life is complicated, and sometimes actions can be taken out of context or even invented wholesale during a difficult time. If you have been charged with domestic or family violence, Mr. Flores can help you to defend your rights and your good name. He can help to cast doubt on the prosecution’s witnesses and their evidence, giving you a better chance of beating these charges.


Theft: Theft may seem like a simple enough charge, but attempting to prove a theft case can be anything but simple. Mr. Flores will make sure that the prosecutors and court fully understand the circumstances and what actually happened. Perhaps the property in question originally belonged to you, or perhaps you made a simple mistake. Whatever the circumstances, Mr. Flores can help you to craft the best possible defense against these charges.


Other Charges: Mr. Flores also has experience defending clients charged with attempted murder, possession or transport of deadly weapons, money laundering, and a number of federal crimes.
Know Your Constitutional Rights!
From Albert A. Flores:

If I think back to most of the search and seizure issues that I have tackled in court, I can honestly say that the vast majority of them began as seemingly innocent traffic stops. As a general principle, you must understand that a police officer or federal agent does not have the right to search a vehicle, house, or personal property without probable cause. In the course of a traffic stop or any kind of investigation, if you are asked for permission to search any of these items, you have the absolute right to say NO! Make sure you are clear to the officer that you are not giving him permission to search and under no circumstances should you or anybody else sign any consent to search form.In the end, they may search your vehicle anyway but as least you have preserved your objection.

Once you have made your objections to a search or questioning known, that should end your involvement. If you want to preserve your issue further you may want to ask that a supervisor be present. Your refusal of a search should be a passive event. Do not under any circumstances attempt to stop or impede law enforcement from conducting a search! This may lead to additional charges filed against you.

You also have the absolute right to remain silent. If you are being investigated, questioned or interrogated, you have the right to remain silent and request an attorney. Use it! Law enforcement cannot force you to speak against your will, and once you request an attorney all questioning must stop. You are only obligated to identify yourself, and that is it. Well-trained officers often try to get information from you by saying things such as, “This won’t take long,”“You can only help yourself,” “This is the only chance you will get to give your version of the story,” or “Why not talk if you have nothing to hide?” Keep in mind that anything you say, however innocent you may think it is, can be used against you at a later date. If you really want to talk, at least do it with the assistance of a knowledgeable attorney at your side. Never voluntarily go to a police station or federal agency to give a statement. When in doubt, call an attorney.
