The State of Texas has the power to arrest, charge, try, and convict defendants who violate the state laws of Texas. State courts have broad jurisdiction, so most crimes involving individual citizens- DWI’s, robberies, assaults, sexual assaults, homicides-are usually tried in state courts. Craig Watkins, the former elected District Attorney in Dallas County, is skilled at all stages of a state court prosecution.
Trying injury lawsuits, also known as tort claims, are one of the most important functions of the United States civil court system. Unlike State and Federal prosecutions, civil claims brought by Plaintiff’s Attorney’s on behalf of regular every day citizens is only the means individuals can hold large corporations accountable for their corrupt or negligent actions. This is where I bring the experience I gained as the elected Prosecutor for Dallas County to my Personal injury clients. Just as I prosecuted defendants charged with crimes, I am now prosecuting corporate entities for their malfeasance.
writ & appeal
If you’re convicted of a crime, you have the option to ‘appeal’ that decision to a higher court. In many cases, these appeals are based on some kind of legal error that happened during the legal process. The higher court (appellate court) will review all of your case documents to reach a decision in the matter. The appeals process is much more lengthy and in depth than the traditional criminal justice process. It can take many months, and you need a proven and experienced appellate lawyer on your side.
I support good cops. They work a difficult, life-threatening job, and their days are extraordinarily stressful. However, police officers also exercise a great deal of control over the lives of the people they interact with, and an abuse of this power is particularly egregious. Some examples of this abuse include:
- Unnecessary physical violence
- Unnecessary and degrading strip searches
- Sexual assault
- Coercion, blackmail or other uses of police power to force you into doing something you don’t want to do
- Racial profiling
