Texas laws and penalties are known for being some of the most severe in the nation. Our experienced legal team undertakes a range of practice areas, each with its own complexities. Jim Spangler has resolved hundreds of cases in each of the following areas.
DWI or DUI (Driving While Intoxicated or Driving Under the Influence)
Although DWI cases seem relatively straightforward, it is actually one of the most complicated areas of the law. A DWI can include any time a driver is operating a vehicle while impaired by the influence of any substance, even over-the-counter or prescription medication. The penalties depend on whether it is their first offense, how incapacitated you were, whether you caused harm or damage while driving, and how old you were at the time. Every case is different, and even DWIs that initially seem straightforward or “obvious” can turn into dismissals or not guilty verdicts with the right attorney.
Assault and Family Violence
Assault and family violence cases are sensitive, and they require a high level of concern, determination, and discretion. Spangler Law provides that in every case. Each assault case is different, and we know from talking to hundreds of clients that things are not always as they seem. The police officers who come after a 911 call will usually arrest the first person accused of a crime rather than taking the time to figure out what actually happened.
When defending a client accused of drug charges, the nuances and details are critical. Charges of possession are generally less serious than those of dealing or trafficking, but the penalties can escalate quickly. It is essential to have competent counsel from the start
Weapons charges in TX are complicated, and they change often. There have recently been some significant updates in this area. Spangler Law remains up to date on all current laws related to firearms and other weapons, and Jim Spangler is ready to defend you if you are charged with a weapons crime.
Burglary, Robbery, and Theft
With the interconnected nature of burglary, robbery, and theft crimes, the defense options are vast but complex. The consequences can range from fines to a lengthy prison sentence, depending on whether a victim was present, the value of the items taken, and if the accused has prior convictions. The small details really matter. Jim Spangler has resolved hundreds of these cases and is ready to represent you on any of these charges.
