Trusted Legal Representation for Criminal Charges: Thomas Tears, Attorney at Law

Have you been charged with a misdemeanor or felony crime? An arrest for a criminal offense can have serious consequences personally and professionally. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you could be facing imprisonment, fines, restitution, mandatory psychological counseling, court-ordered drug or alcohol treatment, asset seizure, vehicle forfeiture and sex offender registration. Offenses involving a child, the use of a deadly weapon, or crimes that resulted in serious bodily harm are considered extremely severe and often result in harsh sentencing. Even certain misdemeanor can lead to jail time. If you have a prior criminal history, three strikes legislation can also put your future at considerable risk.

Fred Highland

There are hundreds of DUI lawyers out there, and I’m sure there’s are a few that know how to win, but I don’t think all attorneys have the legal experience and relentless compassion, followed up by the genuine care that Attorney Tom Tears has proven to me as a client.

Joel Villarreal

I never felt like he wasn’t completely devoted to my case and my well being. He truly cares about his clients and his willingness to work with me in regards to paying out the fees was amazing. I do not believe I could have found another like him. My gratitude is immeasurable.
