Criminal Law

Criminal Law - Police Cars

Being charged with a crime changes your life in an instant. If you are convicted, you may face a variety of penalties, including time in prison, fines, and more. For this reason, it is important to find an attorney who understands how these cases work and can help you work toward the best possible outcome. We have extensive experience representing clients who have been charged with all types of crimes.


The most serious crimes in the state of Texas are felonies. If you have been charged with a felony, you are facing the possibility of serious penalties. Our team can help you determine and follow through the best course of action in these cases, whether you decide to accept a plea bargain or take your case to court.


Although misdemeanors are not as serious as felonies, a misdemeanor conviction can still have a significant impact on your life. Zimmerman Law Firm can represent you in your misdemeanor case, whether you are negotiating a plea deal or fighting the charge in court.


Driving while intoxicated, or DWI, is a common charge in Texas. However, this charge carries significant penalties, especially if you have past convictions. Our legal team has experience with these cases, and we can help you minimize the impact of DWI charges on your future.

Possession of Marijuana

Possession of marijuana can be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. Regardless of the situation, we will help you build the strongest defense possible.

Traffic Offenses/CDL

Traffic offenses are serious for everyone, but they can be particularly problematic if you hold a commercial driver license (CDL). If you have been charged with any type of traffic offense, we can help you fight these charges in court. We also help CDL drivers minimize or avoid licenses suspensions.


In some cases, you may be able to have past convictions removed from your record through a process known as “expunction.” We are happy to review your situation and help you pursue an expunction if possible.

Juvenile Defense

When your child has been charged with a juvenile offense, you want to know that he or she has the best representation possible. As your legal representatives, we will do everything in our power to protect your child’s future.
