Other notable achievements last week were a Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver charge, a first degree felony, enhanced. The defendant had a previous felony conviction, and could have faced a minimum sentence of 15 years to life in prison. Mr. Venza fought relentlessly for a better deal, and got his client 2 years, and he will be eligible for parole within the next month.
Criminal charges are a serious matter, and a conviction will have a long term impact, even on a misdemeanor offense. A background check is a common action used by prospective employers, and a criminal conviction for a misdemeanor violent crime or DWI often destroys the opportunity to be selected for a position. In felony cases, the legal situation is extremely dangerous. The law firm you choose to represent you could not be a more important factor in the outcome of your case.
Mr. Venza served for five years as a prosecuting attorney for the State of Texas. His background serving on the other side of the aisle allowed him to hone and refine his trial skills, as well as giving him real insight in critical issues such as defense case preparation, negotiating skills and tactics, and defense case presentation. His firm is 100% criminal defense and remains strictly focused on this area of the law. His Fort Bend criminal defense law firm defends individuals charged with DUI/DWI, drug offenses, violent crimes such as murder, manslaughter and assault, crimes against police, family violence, theft offenses, sex crimes and organized crime offenses, among others. The firm continues to garner a reputation for excellent defense work. The recent victories are one more indication of the quality of the the firm. You can find out more about John L.
