Criminal Defense Areas

Mike Monks specializes in many criminal defense areas:

Drug Possession

The Texas Controlled Substances Act makes it illegal to have certain drugs in your possession. These drugs are on a schedule called Penalty Groups, which range from I (the most serious) to IV (least serious). Marijuana and LSD are not placed into any Penalty Group. Regardless, the penalties can be severe; so severe that you may be facing a significant prison term. | Learn More


DWI is taken very, very seriously by local law enforcement. Anyone that faces drunk driving charges faces serious consequences in the event of a conviction. Moreover, drunk driving cases in Texas have a process that moves quickly by design. This is no different in Houston area courts. In fact, the Harris County District Attorney’s office is among the most aggressive in prosecuting drunk driving cases. | Learn More

Felony Assault

Unlike most other states, Texas treats assault and battery as the same crime. In fact, Texas law only refers to “assault and battery” as “assault”. However, assault charges have a great degree of variance in scope. | Learn More

Misdemeanor Assault

Misdemeanor assault occurs when an individual commits an act of statutory assault against another. However, state law specifically notes when an act of statutory assault warrants a misdemeanor charge. | Learn more
