Put A Former Prosecutor On Your Side

Attorney John M. Petruzzi has more than 30 years of criminal law experience. Mr. Petruzzi is a board-certified criminal law specialist, as certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He is also a former chief prosecutor in Texas felony court and a former Assistant District Attorney in Harris County.

Mr. Petruzzi's knowledge of local courts and procedures is a decided advantage. There are a number of ways that he may be able to make a significant difference in the outcome of your case:

  • He can file a motion to suppress evidence that has been obtained in violation of your constitutional rights, including evidence obtained as a result of an unreasonable search and seizure. If evidence is suppressed, your charges could be dismissed or you may be in a better position to fight your charges at trial or obtain a more favorable plea bargain.
  • He can negotiate with the prosecution on your behalf to seek a favorable plea agreement, which may enable you to avoid a criminal conviction, accept a plea to a lesser offense or significantly minimize the penalties arising from your charges. As a former prosecutor, Mr. Petruzzi knows how prosecutors tend to view cases, better enabling him to know how to effectively communicate with prosecutors.
  • He can fight your charges at trial. Mr. Petruzzi has acted as lead attorney in more than 150 criminal jury trials.
