Law Firm Overview FREE CONSULTATIONGriffin and Cain, Attorneys at Law represent individuals who have been arrested and charged with a crime in the Greater Houston area, or if you have heard that you or a loved one are being investigated by a law enforcement agency, the most important decision you face is choosing a criminal defense lawyer to represent you in fighting these charges or in stopping the investigation. Criminal accusations are serious, and having a conviction on your record can be troublesome for you and your family.
Your choice of divorce lawyer or family lawyer is very important. You must remember you are entering into, or being dragged unwillingly into, a lawsuit. In any lawsuit being fully informed with reliable and competent information is the key to success. Your divorce or family lawyer is the point-person in this process, and he or she must educate you, develop a plan, and execute that plan by your side. You need to know that your lawyer will listen to what you have to say, know the right questions to ask, and have the expertise necessary to take that information and bring about the result that is in your and your family's best interests.
Areas of Law
Areas of Law Description
Our practice areas include, but are not limited to the following:
An experienced DWI lawyer will advise you of the pitfalls ahead and future problems you may face, and will guide you through the landmines lying in wait for you. The DWI lawyers at Griffin & Cain, Attorneys at Law are experienced, knowledgeable, resourceful and ready to help you. Many like you have come to our offices facing the same problems you face. Whether or not you think there's any chance at beating the charges, you should not go it alone. Our outlook is to look for the best resolution of the case possible given the circumstances, and that starts with our free consultation and appraisal of the case against you.
Texas law says you can be charged for acts that are obvious assaults, such as kicking, punching or choking someone, but also says you can be charged under assault for merely saying you are about to hurt a person if that person has a reasonable fear that you will actually hurt them. You need to know that simple disagreements that turn to charged and heated verbal fights can be criminal assault. If you have hurt someone, or think you may have threatened someone, our criminal defense lawyers are ready to protect your rights and aggressively fight for you.
Texas law provides for a broad range of punishment for any of the above charges based on the circumstances surrounding the charge, including the amount alleged to have been stolen, whether violence was used or threatened, and whether a certain type of building was allegedly entered during the theft. Even a small sum alleged can result in significant penalties and jail time. You should also keep in mind the state will also seek restitution of the amount they prove was taken illegally.
- Record Expunctions
Everywhere in the United States, whether it is to rent an apartment or to get a job you are asked to complete applications on which thorough background checks are run. If you have a criminal record it may be very hard for you to get a job or rent a decent home. Texas allows people a second chance through an expunction.
- White Collar Crimes
White collar crime is always a hot button issue, gathering attention from the media and strict scrutiny from law enforcement officials and prosecutors. This strict scrutiny means that white collar prosecutions are generally lengthy and well investigated. White collar crimes can include felonies and can lead to long prison terms, hefty fines and large restitution bills. If you are facing state white collar charges you can trust the criminal practice experience of Griffin & Cain to see your rights and your business name are protected.
- Domestic Violence
Law enforcement and prosecutors vigorously pursue family violence charges. If you are charged with a crime of domestic violence you need a defense lawyer who will protect your rights just as vigorously. Officers called to the scene of a domestic dispute may decide that one person was out of control sometimes without even talking to the other person. In situations like that you need the experience and tenacity of our Criminal Defense Lawyers.
- Drug Offenses
The laws prohibiting possession of drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, and prescriptions drugs that a doctor has not prescribed are stiff, and provide for punishment ranges from fines to lengthy jail time or even confinement in prison. At Griffin & Cain, Attorneys at Law, our focus is on protecting your rights, and getting the best result possible under the circumstances.
Whether you are filing for divorce, or your spouse has already filed, you are about to enter an emotional process with serious consequences for the next several years of your life. There are many problems you can create for yourself, and just as many you can avoid altogether with the right representation. Our divorce lawyers are experienced with the process and understanding of the stress you will be under. Call today for a free consultation.
- Grandparental Rights
As a grandparent, you don't need to read a statute to know that your relationship with your grandchild is in their best interest. As a grandparent whose son or daughter is going through a divorce or other custody action, you also don't need to be told that your relationship with your grandchild may be under as much strain and stress as with the child's parents. You know that the outcome of the custody battle currently being waged has the potential to effectively shut you out of your grandchild's life altogether. In most cases, there is little that you can do to preserve your relationship through a court's order. However, there are times when a grandparent can step into their child's shoes, filling the void left by a parent who the court finds is unable to provide proper care for a child. Our Family Lawyers can help you preserve your rights, and protect your grandchild.
- Protective Orders
The state of Texas has legal support in place for victims of family violence. Anyone who has been physically harmed or threatened by a family member or a child who has been abused by a family member can receive a protective order. The Conroe Divorce Lawyers at Griffin & Cain can help victims obtain a court order to prevent the abuser from committing more acts of violence against family members.
- Child Support
Texas law provides for child support guidelines which are both a starting point and a presumption of fairness. The guideline formula takes in data on the parents' income and resources, and gives a number for monthly support. Deviation from this number, whether ordered by a judge after a hearing, or after an agreement by the parents, requires good cause, and a statement of that cause in the divorce decree or other document. Your situation may suggest deviation from the guidelines, and you need a family lawyer to press your case.
- Child Custody
The best interests of your children are no doubt your primary concern while you go through a divorce. Texas law also has those interests in mind, and couples that interest with a robust set of rights for parents. Maintaining or regaining custody may not be a simple process, but our experienced attorneys know the law, know the courts, and are ready to explain and enforce your rights.
- Post-Divorce Modifications
Revisiting the issues you thought were settled will no doubt be a trying time for you. Our divorce lawyers are experienced with the process and understanding of the stress you will be under. Call today for a free consultation.
- Enforcing Child Support And Visitation
Have you been holding an order concerning child support or your visitation and access with your child or children and wondering what good it really is? Is your former spouse withholding something you know that document gives you the right to receive? You need a Texas Divorce Lawyer to press your interests and those of your children. The same court that issued those orders needs to hear about your problems. That court can enforce the order by issuing sanctions that can possibly include imprisonment.
- Property Division
Dividing the marital property is necessary in every divorce. While there are some assets and that are the exclusive property of one spouse, the vast majority of assets owned by a couple are shared, and tough choices will often have to be made. The same is true of most marital debts. Something very important to remember is that the divorce order assigns property and debt in terms of obligations between the couple, not between the spouse or spouses who incurred the debt and the lender. Additional steps may be necessary to protect you from a messy post-dissolution debt situation. Our divorce lawyers know the pitfalls inherent in a sloppy property division, and are prepared to do everything possible to protect you from future headaches.
