Traffic Violations/DUI

A conviction on DUI charges can seriously affect your life. It will cost you money, you will lose your driver's license, and you may even go to jail. If you have been arrested for DUI/DWI, you need an experienced DUI lawyer working to protect your rights and preserve your freedom

The Law Office of Keatts & Horton, LLC., has extensive experience in the defense of drunk driving and traffic violation charges.

A DUI arrest triggers two separate legal actions-a trial on the criminal charge and an administrative hearing which can result in the loss of your driver's license. The Law Office of Keatts & Horton, LLC. can represent you in both proceedings, and will work to minimize the effect on your life and preserve your ability to drive.

In some cases, a DUI/DWI charge can be overcome. The arresting officer may not have had probable cause to stop your car. The officer may not have had cause to continue the investigation. The breath test may not have been conducted properly. In these situations, our firm will undertake a vigorous defense on your behalf. In other cases, the State may have good evidence against you. In these situations, it may make sense to obtain an acceptable plea agreement, put the event behind you, and move forward with your life.

Weapon Charges
Weapons charges will often arise with other criminal allegations involving assault or drug crimes. Whether you are under investigation for a weapons charge or you have recently been arrested, it is important to know your rights. At The Law Office of Keatts & Horton, LLC., we will clearly explain your legal situation to you. Our firm has extensive experience in handling all types of weapons charges, including cases involving conspiracy, multiple charges, and felonies.

Domestic Violence/Protective Orders

Many people fail to fully grasp how an allegation of domestic violence can adversely affect their life. In fact, it not only jeopardizes their freedom, but also adversely affects their family, professional reputation, and social image. You should not take allegations of domestic violence lightly; contact The Law Office of Keatts & Horton for a free initial consultation. The law defines domestic violence as the reckless infliction of physical or emotional injury upon a family or household member. It is important to understand that an arrest for domestic violence can lead the court to issue an emergency protective order, which prohibits you from going within a certain distance of the victim. If you live with the victim, the order will prohibit you from returning home until the order expires or the court lifts it. If you violate a protective order, the state can charge you with an additional crime. If a court convicts you of domestic violence, the penalties you face can be severe, including jail time, probation, and damage to your reputation. These are serious allegations that can affect the rest of your life.  It is important to work with an experienced legal team that can properly defend your version of events. We will consult with witnesses, collect statements, review police records, and take all necessary steps to preserve evidence in your case.

Drug Charges

The Law Office of Keatts & Horton, LLC. has successfully defended numerous clients facing misdemeanor and felony drug charges. We defend against drug charges involving all types of drugs and illegal controlled substances. We will work to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.

Assault Charges
An assault conviction can result in serious penalties, including fines, jail time and a criminal record. It may lead to future difficulties in obtaining a job or penalties in a family or other civil matter. That is why it is so important to know your rights and to work with an attorney who can defend your interest. Defending against assault charges starts with gathering the facts. It is important that your attorney begin an immediate investigation to collect and preserve all necessary evidence. Attorneys from our firm will pursue witness statements, police documentation, video surveillance and other documentation that can help to sustain your version of what happened. We will explore all of your options, including self-defense, where appropriate.
Sex Offenses
Have you been charged as a sexual predator or sexual offender? Sexual offenses are very serious charges that can sometimes occur very easily. Probation or any other type of conviction will require lifetime registration as a sex offender. Any physical conduct that is unwarranted can be construed a sexual assault or sexual harassment. A sexual assault charge can be an embarrassing charge to have on an individual’s criminal record. Avoid this charge by speaking with an experienced attorney.  The Law Office of Keatts & Horton, LLC. have assisted clients with the following charges:

Sexual harassment
Sexual abuse
Sexual assault
Child pornography
Sex with a child
