Our firm’s founder, Christine Dauphin Lacy, served for 12 years as a City of San Antonio Municipal Court Judge. She presided over a number of trials involving underage minors who had committed Class C misdemeanors such as minor in possession, theft under $100, city park curfew violations and others. She approached each case by helping minors understand the consequences of their actions, while providing the opportunity for them to have a second chance and not ruin their future. She has also served as a criminal magistrate judge and has extensive experience presiding over felony cases.
Ms. Dauphin Lacy takes the same approach as a criminal defense attorney. Our office is a judgment-free zone; we understand good people, regardless of age, find themselves in bad situations and need their due process rights protected. Our focus will be to find options in your case that allow you to move forward without an arrest or criminal charge permanently limiting your chance at a successful life. We will represent clients facing charges ranging from DUI and drug violations, assault, accusations lodged by child protective services, underage drinking and tobacco use, to traffic tickets and other moving violations.
The rules in Texas related to sealing you or your child’s criminal record are complex, and many convictions do not qualify for expungement, but Dauphin Law, a Professional Corporation can help you navigate this process if your situation allows for one.
