Types of Cases We Can Take On
The criminal defense lawyers at Rosenthal Kalabus & Therrian are uniquely qualified to handle felony and misdemeanor criminal cases.
Charges that are typically referred to as white-collar crimes can be extremely difficult to defend yourself against because this area of the law is complex. Additionally, many of these crimes are brought by the federal government, which means there’s often no limit to the expenses the government may lay out to try you for a crime.
These crimes can carry stiff penalties, including years in prison and significant fines. The white-collar crimes that we defend clients against include:
- Computer crimes
- Identity theft
- Money laundering
- Healthcare fraud
- Wire fraud
- Obstruction of justice
- Social Security fraud
- Mail fraud
- Accounting fraud
- Immigration fraud
- Tax fraud and tax violations
- RICO Act violations
- Securities law violations
- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations
- Environmental law violations
- Controlled Substances Act
Sex offenses are prosecuted aggressively in Texas. Just the allegation of committing a sexual offense can have long-term repercussions that can be difficult to erase. Where you can live, work, and who you can socialize with could all be severely restricted if you’re convicted of a sex crime. It’s imperative that you have quality legal representation to help limit your exposure to significant jail time and the detrimental effect a sex offense conviction can have on your future. We can represent you if you’ve been charged with the following:
- Indecent exposure
- Solicitation of a minor
- Sexual assault
- Date rape
- Sexual abuse
- Statutory rape
- Date rape
- Sexual harassment
- Public lewdness
- Online solicitation
Federal Firearms Crimes
While the United States observes your Second Amendment right to bear arms, the government can levy charges against you if they believe you’ve violated federal firearm laws. Being charged with a federal firearm crime can result in serious consequences if you’re convicted. For example, if you’re a convicted felon and are found in possession of a firearm, you could be convicted of a third-degree felony that carries a sentence of up to ten years’ imprisonment. We handle the following firearm cases:
- Minor in possession of a firearm or ammunition
- Transfer of a firearm or ammunition to a juvenile
- Possession of a prohibited firearm
- Prohibited person in possession of a firearm
- Possession of a firearm while 1,000 feet or less away from a school zone
- Making a false statement to a licensed firearms dealer when purchasing a firearm
- Illegal transfer of a firearm by a licensed firearms dealer
Drug offenses are treated harshly across the country, and Texas is no different. In Texas, you can be charged with several drug crimes if it’s alleged that you committed offenses related to marijuana, cocaine, heroin, prescription drugs, street opioids like fentanyl, methamphetamine, and other controlled substances. Whether you’re charged with federal drug offenses or Texas drug offenses, drug crimes tend to carry some of the steepest penalties depending on the type and amount of drug involved and the severity of the offense. Some of the drug charges we can defend you against are:
- Juvenile drug crimes
- Cultivation of marijuana
- Marijuana possession
- Possession with the intent to distribute/sell
- Drug trafficking
- Drug distribution or sale
- Drug manufacturing
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
Family and domestic issues are some of the most delicate matters to deal with in the legal system. You need a compassionate defense attorney who understands the complicated Texas Family Code laws and who can help you fight these high-stakes charges. We’ve successfully represented those who have been charged with:
- CPS allegations (child abuse, neglect, or molestation)
- Offensive contact
- Child abuse
- Assault with strangulation
- Domestic assault

- Violation of protective order
- Continuous violence against family
We also represent those who have been accused of and charged with:

Lastly, our defense of our clients doesn’t end when they’re acquitted or convicted of a crime. We can also defend you against allegations that you violated the terms of your probation. Additionally, we can help you move beyond your charges by seeking an order of non-disclosure or an expunction of your criminal record.
