Criminal Defense

At The Sheena Law firm, we have a proven track record in criminal defense and we are well established in the criminal defense community.  We follow a criminal case to the end, from pre-charging investigations all the way though to the end.  Danny Sheena has gained a reputation of being one of the toughest, most successful trial lawyers within their office. As a criminal defense attorney, he knows how to defend even the toughest cases, and how to guide your case through the system with your best interests in mind.  Our criminal practice includes legal advice and representation in the following areas:

We will provide you with time, preparation, respect, and persistence you should expect when you hire a private criminal defense attorney. We are licensed to practice criminal defense in Texas State and federal courts at the trial and appellate levels.  We represent clients in all types of criminal and traffic cases, from minor infractions and misdemeanors, to the most serious felonies.

Any person facing the possibility of being convicted of a crime, being sent to jail or prison, or being placed on probation, should always hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.  The complexity of the criminal justice system, coupled with the emotional, social, and professional impact of a conviction requires professional representation.  Each criminal case is unique, and only an attorney who is experienced in dealing with the many variables present in any given prosecution, can provide meaningful representation for those charged with a criminal offense.  This is so even in the cases where a conviction seems a certainty.  Often, there are creative alternatives to the prosecution itself and in sentencing.

Pre-charging Investigation
When you are suspected of committing a criminal offense, you need an attorney immediately. During this time of uncertainty, an attorney can do pre-filing investigations and contact the investigating officer on your behalf. Too often we are contacted after the client has already given a statement to the police. 

We contact the police for you, since nothing we say can be used against you.  Remember, the police are very good at getting suspects to talk.  Especially if you are NOT GUILTY of the charges, you need an attorney even more so to intercede on your behalf.  Two of the purposes of pre-filing investigations are to advise you of your rights and to negotiate with police and prosecutors. It is also a vehicle for showing the prosecution that their case is weak and therefore not worth pursuing.  This can save you thousands of dollars in bail premiums alone!!

During our many years of practicing criminal law in the Houston area, we have earned a reputation among law enforcement officers and prosecutors for practicing criminal law with integrity, giving us credibility and allowing us to establish important professional relationships. Our good reputation is an invaluable part of our pre-charging investigations and benefits our clients at every stage of their criminal cases. 

Sentencing Mitigation
We find creative and innovative ways to mitigate any potential sentencing. We emphasize rehabilitation and work towards alternatives to incarceration.  We have a vast array of experts at our disposal to offset any incriminating information the prosecution may try to admit in sentencing.   Our clients benefit from our skills as negotiators and our thorough understanding of sentencing characteristics, procedures, and laws.
