Proven Texas Lawyer Provides Effective Criminal Defense

Accomplished Weatherford advocate pursues justice for clients

When facing a criminal charge, the best way to get the representation you deserve is to find a defense lawyer with a strong track record. At the Kernan Law Firm, P.C. in Weatherford, I am an aggressive advocate who has taken more than 70 cases to trial before a jury and gotten charges dropped or dismissed in hundreds of other matters. Whether the allegation against you relates to a violent felony or a traffic offense, I work relentlessly to protect your rights from the moment you retain my services. By combining compassion with a fierce commitment to justice, my firm provides comprehensive legal guidance for any criminal law matter.

Law firm offers detailed counsel from a former prosecutor

As someone who has achieved successful results as a prosecutor and a defense attorney, I provide exceptional counsel in a full range of felony and misdemeanor charges, including:

  • Drug crimes — Prosecutions involving the alleged possession or sale of controlled substances are often based on incorrect assumptions or improperly gathered evidence. I can detect weaknesses in the case against you and seek an appropriate outcome.
  • Assault — If you have been accused of assault, I conduct a thorough investigation to identify any possible defenses and build an argument to reduce or dismiss the charges.
  • Traffic offenses — Losing your driving privileges can severely limit your ability to work and take care of your family. My firm fights traffic citations and allegations of reckless or drunk driving.

Whether you are being prosecuted in state or federal court, I can give you a detailed overview of your legal options during a free initial consultation.

Knowledgeable counselor handles drunk driving charges

My firm is highly skilled at defending against charges of driving under the influence of alcohol (DWI/DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI). Though many people use the terms interchangeably, Texas law makes a slight distinction between the two charges. DWI applies to drivers 21 years of age or older whose blood alcohol concentration is .08 percent or higher. Younger drivers are charged with DWI/DUI if they have any alcohol in their system. If you’ve been accused of either crime, I will investigate whether police had reasonable suspicion to stop you, whether sobriety testing was conducted correctly, and whether there were any violations of your rights that would render evidence inadmissible.

Thorough litigator handles probation violation and revocation cases

If you are convicted of a felony or misdemeanor while on probation, it might be a violation of your probation terms. In addition to helping you fight the allegation in question, I also work to help clients avoid incarceration by arguing that extended probation is appropriate rather than time in prison.

Lawyer assists with expunction and nondisclosure of criminal records

A criminal record carries a social stigma and other serious consequences. Felony or misdemeanor convictions can make it difficult to obtain a job, an education, an apartment or a professional license. In some cases, my firm can help expunge past violations so that there is no longer a record that can be found by someone running a background check.
