Criminal Charges in Texas


Regardless of the crime you stand accused of, Barrera, Cavazos & Powers is prepared to fight for you. Our lawyers possess extensive judicial, prosecutorial, and defense backgrounds in a multitude of potential charges, including:

The impact on you and your family from a conviction on any of these charges can be substantial. Even non-DWI traffic violations can result in the loss of your driving privileges and significant fines. Serious criminal convictions often come with incarceration and a lasting effect on employability upon release. For murder and capital murder, Texas is one of 30 states in which the death penalty is a sentencing option.

At Barrera, Cavazos & Powers, we understand the magnitude of these charges and the importance of avoiding a conviction. We will fully investigate the facts of your case to make sure your rights were not violated by law enforcement, and we will examine all evidence and witness accounts to look for inconsistencies. After analysis of all conceivable sources of information, we will define a course of action and pursue dropped or reduced charges.

Criminal Offenses and Charges

Texas Expunction Lawyers


Individuals with an arrest or conviction on their criminal record may be eligible to have it removed through expunction. To avoid complications with potential employers and other issues, this can prove essential for persons previously found guilty of some misdemeanor offenses, or whose case was dismissed or never pursued in court. Barrera, Cavazos & Powers attorneys can determine if the offense in question is eligible for a petition for expunction and subsequent order of expunction. If it does not qualify, it could meet the standards for a nondisclosure order that will limit access to your criminal record.

Jury acquits Karnes City man in 2012 bar stabbing

September 20, 2018

Nearly everything went wrong for the prosecution in last week's murder trial at the courthouse, and jurors spent little time finding Jeffrey Reyna not guilty in the 2012 stabbing death of Jimmy Garcia. While the defense relied upon Reyna's DNA not being present on the weapon suspected as being used in the killing, prosecutors were depending on eyewitness testimony to implicate Reyna.
