Misdemeanor offenses carry a maximum punishment of up to one year in the Comal County jail. Misdemeanor offenses are prosecuted in the two County Courts at Law in Comal County. These offenses include possession of marijuana, driving while intoxicated, and assault causing bodily injury. Daniel spent five years prosecuting in the County Courts where he became familiar with the common weaknesses and strategies to best defend these cases.


Felony offenses are prosecuted in the four District Courts of Comal County. Felony prison sentences are not served in Comal County but rather in the Texas Department of Corrections. A felony conviction can be costly branding someone a felon for the rest of their lives. You need an attorney that understands the tactical charging decisions behind every felony indictment and that knows the best strategy to defend your case.
