Criminal Defense

San Marcos Criminal Defense Lawyers Serving Clients In Central Texas

At Sergi & Associates, P.C., we have a simple philosophy for providing aggressive, effective criminal defense: If you are truly innocent, we will challenge everything about the police evidence and the prosecutor's case against you. We will leave no stone unturned in pursuit of justice. We know how high the stakes are for you and your family.

Knowledge And Experience To Help You Avoid An Unjust Conviction

We are unique in our approach to building the strongest case possible for your defense. Many big-city law firms talk about preparing their cases for trial. We follow through. We have a full-time investigator on staff to investigate the evidence to prepare for court. Not at the end of the case — right from the very start. In short, if we cannot convince the state to dismiss the criminal charges, we are prepared to take your case to trial.

When Innocence Is Not The Issue

We also know that people make mistakes. We will never advise you to pursue an acquittal in court if you are not innocent of the crime. We are not here to judge our clients. We put a human face on your mistake, so a prosecutor and/or court can understand why one may have committed a foolish act — often as a result of suffering from depression, a life-changing event like divorce or death of a cherished family member or being caught up in chemical dependency. Accordingly, our attorneys work with a wide variety of psychologists, psychiatrists, health care professionals and other specialists to present a favorable image of our client.

Do not give up. We are often able to work with the prosecutors to seek an alternative to the harsh penalties and jail sentences that can result from a conviction. We have an excellent record of helping people avoid jail or prison.

Our state and federal criminal law attorneys have handled hundreds of criminal cases ranging from capital murder cases (those charged with a death-penalty offense) to complex financial federal fraud cases, as well as fairly routine drug possession and driving while intoxicated cases. These criminal law lawyers are experienced in state and federal criminal law, and given David Sergi's background as a law clerk to the chief judge of the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Texas, our Criminal Law Section has the depth and understanding to handle almost every criminal case.

Our experience includes murder defense for cases carrying the possible death penalty.

  • DWI defense, Texas driver's license suspension

A Note To Parents About Your College Student's Criminal Charges

Young people make mistakes. Young people away from home attending college for the first time are subject to temptations and situations that many are unable to handle. If your college student has been arrested for a typical "college" crime such as shoplifting, drug possession, underage drinking, DWI, sexual assault, possession of a fake identification card or vandalism (to name a few), turn to us for help. We will work with the local prosecutor to seek an alternative to a conviction on his or her record.
