Types of Cases We Can Defend Against
As Attorney Silverman is a
Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist (TBLS), we are able to represent clients facing all types of sex crime
allegations, from non-registerable offenses to the most serious
federal crimes. Examples of the cases we handle include:
Handling False Accusations
In some communities, being accused of a sex crime is as bad as being convicted.
Guilt or innocence no longer matter. The false allegations cast doubt
that may never go away. Getting to the bottom of the allegations and fighting
to keep the charges off of your official record are critical to protecting
your future. If you have been falsely accused, get the legal help you
need as soon as possible.
At The Law Offices of Jed Silverman, we have seen nearly every type of
false allegation, as well as every reason for one. Oftentimes, a child
makes an accusation after being coached by a parent involved in a custody
battle or bitter divorce. Unfortunately, it's a common practice that
works too often. Sometimes, a victim is simply confused about the nature
of a personal relationship or its intentions. Other times, mental illness
may play a role in the false allegations.
Attorney Jed Silverman has a strong record of protecting people who have
faced false accusations of sex offenses. Our Houston law firm knows how
to investigate beneath the surface of the allegations, to get to the real
evidence and motivation for the charges. Keeping your reputation and your
record clear is our number one priority. We work aggressively to get the
charges dropped and have your name cleared.
