Defending Your Driving Rights, Protecting Your Future.
While some people may tell you that misdemeanor charges are not that serious, you would be wise not to listen. The penalties for a misdemeanor conviction are less than those for felonies but they can still result in the loss of your job, your reputation, your freedom, your driver’s license, and more, depending on the nature of the offense and its severity.
When charged with a misdemeanor, you should do everything you can to protect yourself from the negative consequences of a conviction. The best action you can take is to seek the representation of a qualified criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. At Aaronson Law Firm, our El Paso misdemeanor attorney has been practicing in this field since 1976. His extensive experience gives him a thorough understanding of Texas criminal law, how the criminal justice system works in our area, and what it takes to successfully defend clients.

Texas misdemeanors are categorized into three classes as follows:
- Class C misdemeanors. These are the least serious of the three carrying a fine only of up to $500. Examples include writing bad checks and disorderly conduct.
- Class B misdemeanors. These are punishable by up to 180 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,000. Examples include DWI, Indecent exposure, and possession of two ounces or less of marijuana.
- Class A misdemeanors. These carry penalties of up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000. Examples include public lewdness, unlawfully carrying a weapon, and violation of a protective order.
Aside from the penalties above, a misdemeanor conviction will also end up giving you a permanent criminal record. Your record can be accessed on a routine background check, jeopardizing your chances of gaining employment, being able to rent a house or apartment, obtaining credit, or potentially qualifying for a professional license in your career of choice, such as in a trade like plumbing or electrical, in education, pharmacy, as a pilot, or other professions.
