Your criminal record in the modern age

JBABB Law - Criminal Defense Attorney

Once upon a time, a criminal record was a straightforward endeavor. It was a physical piece of paper held in your municipality that listed convictions during your adult life, and could be transferred via fax or by mail. Employers had to make a formal request to take a peek at it, and that could only happen with your explicit permission.


New Office Locations. An Expanded Reach.

It doesn’t matter how affordable, knowledgeable, or reliable you are as law firm you if you can’t reach those that need you. Think of it this way, it doesn’t matter how great your voice is if no one can hear you sing. In that vein, we at JBABB Criminal Defense Attorneys felt the need to expand our reach and increase our presence in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. We’d like to take this time to announce the opening of our new locations in Fort Worth and Denton.

We live in a time where every person and every business has a blog they want you to read. It would be physically impossible for you to read all of the literature out there, even if you treated it as a full time job. However, I firmly believe that one of the most beneficial blogs a person can subscribe to is a good legal blog.


A Social Media Warning

Social media has taken over much of our life. Even this blog itself has social sharing links. While social media can be a wonderful thing, there are certain rules that must be abided by when using social media following an arrest. Ignoring them can have disastrous effects on the outcome of your trial.

There are certain legal phrases everyone hears, whether from a police officer, an attorney, a court clerk, or your average episode of Law & Order. Some of these might be RICO law, Habeas corpus, or in the case of this post, deferred adjudication. Every time someone gets a ticket, they read that deferred adjudication is an option, but more and more common is the comment that they don’t have any idea what it means. Ideally, we can settle that here.
