I was arrested for burglarizing a house. I was convicted of two felonies when I was younger and I was sent to prison in the past. The prosecutor used these old convictions to label me a habitual offender. The prosecutor tried to send me to prison for 20 years for a crime I didn’t commit. I had no choice. I had to turn down the plea bargain. If I lost I would have been given between 25 years to life in prison. Mr. Chaires handled my defense and he used the video surveillance of the burglary, eyewitnesses and other stuff to convince the prosecutor that they arrested the wrong man. Mr. Chaires even found out the identity of the real burglar. I was so relieved when my case was dismissed. My life was almost ruined, but I got a second chance because I had a good lawyer.

If you get arrested don’t hesitate to call The Law Office of Alberto Elias Chaires, PLLC. I was parked in a vehicle with some friends when the police detained us for questioning related to some altercation nearby. When one of the officer looked in our vehicle, he saw there was a handgun under my seat and pulled his gun on me. They arrested me on charges of Felon in Possession of a Firearm. At the time, I was on deferred adjudication probation for Attempted Sexual Assault and the cops didn’t want to hear my explanation. The handgun didn’t belong to me, but I was arrested anyway. Because I was charged with a new felony, the probation department moved to revoke my probation and send me to prison. I was facing as much as 10 years in prison on the firearm charge and as much as 20 years on the probation revocation.

As part of his case preparation, Mr. Chaires visited me in jail and met with the witnesses on my case. He worked with my family to gather photos and other evidence to defend my case. He found caselaw from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals supporting my case. In the end, he convinced the District Attorney to withdraw his Motion to Revoke Probation and to dismiss the new felony charge. Because of my attorney’s legal representation, I am out of jail and back with my family.

I was having dinner with friends at a popular local restaurant when I was accused of criminal trespass by two off-duty uniformed police officers working at the restaurant. I was told that I had to leave because I had not paid for my food. I presented proof of payment, but was told I still had to leave. Despite complying with the officers’ orders I was still arrested and charged with criminal trespass. My friend was also arrested for allegedly interfering with the officers. I had never been arrested before and I hired The Law Office of Alberto Elias Chaires, PLLC to represent me in court. My friend hired another firm. The District Attorney presented dashboard camera video and officers’ testimony to prove our guilt. Mr. Chaires in cooperation with the other law firm obtained surveillance camera video from inside the restaurant proving that the officers acted with unnecessary aggression and without proper justification. Mr. Chaires and the other firm conferred with the District Attorney’s Office and both of our case were dismissed. I was pleased that both firms worked together to achieve justice for my friend and I. We could not be happier.

I was hurt in a car crash when I was riding home with my sister through a construction zone and large tractor cut into our lane hitting our car. The car was destroyed and we were both traumatized. My mother contacted The Law Office of Alberto Elias Chaires and hired him to handle our lawsuit. Mr. Chaires dealt with the construction company lawyers and got our car paid for. Thankfully, my sister was not badly hurt, but had to be checked out after the crash. Mr. Chaires had her medical bills paid and she received a nice settlement for her pain and suffering. I wasn’t so lucky. I was struck in the face by broken glass and had to go to the hospital. I’m ok now, but the experience was painful and scary. Fortunately, Mr. Chaires got me a $90,000.00 settlement to take care of my medical bills, pain and suffering as well as my attorney’s fees.

I was driving home from a friend’s house after a party when I was pulled over on the highway near downtown Austin. The officer said I was swerving in my lane and nearly hit his patrol car. The video did show I drifted, but that was all he needed, I was arrested for DWI because I had a few drinks at the party. I was worried because my job requires me to drive from worksite to worksite and I could not afford to lose my license or get convicted of DWI. I hired the Law Office of Alberto Elias Chaires and got a one on one interview with the attorney. He got copies of the video and police report and met with me to review the video and police report. The prosecution would not accept anything less than a conviction for DWI, so we went to court several times to face trial. In the end, my lawyer got my case reduced without a conviction on my record or a DWI and it saved me $3,000.00 in DWI fees I would have had to pay the State of Texas. My job was saved and I could not be happier with the outcome and the representation I received. I give this law firm my highest recommendation.

I was falsely charged with domestic violence and hired another attorney to handle my trial. I was found guilty by a jury and convicted of the offense which resulted in costly fines, probation, loss of employment and most damaging was a finding of family violence entered against me. The conviction restricted my parental rights under Texas law and cost me subsequent employment opportunities. I filed my appeal to the Fourth Court of Appeals without much success. I then hired Albert Chaires to take over my appeal which he researched and fought but was denied after review. This didn’t stop my lawyer, Mr. Chaires filed a Writ of Habeas Corpus and successfully set aside my criminal conviction. My case was once again before a jury, but this time I had a well-prepared defense and two lawyers ready to take on the State of Texas. In preparation for my criminal trial, Mr. Chaires conducted an extensive investigation uncovering evidence to clear my name and convinced the State to dismiss the criminal charge against me. As a direct result of the dismissal, the previous finding of family violence was removed from my record and my parental rights have been restored as if the whole thing never happened. In addition, because my criminal history was cleared of this false charge, I was recently hired by a prominent national company at a high salary. I received excellent representation and much attention to my concerns. Mr. Chaires was never too busy to meet with me in person. Mr. Chaires was always prepared and went the extra mile to get results. I would strongly recommend Mr. Chaires to my closest friends and family.
