Criminal Defense From An Experienced Attorney
When facing criminal charges, you need to have a strong defense because there is a lot at stake. You could be facing incarceration, serious fines and other penalties if you are convicted. It is not too much to say that your freedom and future are on the line.
When defending yourself against criminal charges, the most important thing you can do is work with a lawyer you trust – someone who knows the criminal justice system, can protect your rights and can minimize the damage that criminal charges can have on your life.
Meet Me, Attorney Jeremy Sylestine
I have more than 15 years of criminal law experience, and I defend clients against a wide range of criminal charges in Austin and the surrounding areas of Texas. For more than 15 years, I worked as a prosecuting attorney, handling the most serious of felony cases exclusively for 15 years and, for seven years before that, prosecuting domestic violence and child abuse cases.
I know the criminal justice system from both sides, and I am a trusted source for criminal defense representation throughout the Austin, Texas, area.
Strong Defense Against A Range Of Charges
- Drug- and alcohol-related charges: I can help you defend against driving while intoxicated charges, as well as all types of drug-related charges, like possession, possession with intent, and trafficking.
- Violent crimes: I represent clients accused of both misdemeanor and felony assault and battery, aggravated assault and domestic violence.
- Sex crimes: I also help clients who have been accused of rape, prostitution, solicitation, possession of child pornography and other types of sex crimes.
Whatever you have been charged with, I have the experience and knowledge to represent your interests and ensure that you receive a fair trial free from bias and any violations of your constitutional rights.
Time Is A Factor
When you are accused of a crime, it is important to get your criminal defense lawyer on the case as soon as possible to gather evidence and build your case. Even if you have not yet been arrested and charged but have good reason to believe you are under investigation for criminal activity, call me. I can often help clients in this situation, and, in some cases, I can defeat a claim before an arrest is even made.
