Challenging Blood Toxicology Reports

I have personally cross-examined many blood toxicology experts, and I know what to look for in evidence, and what potential flaws could exist in a blood toxicology report. For example, certain physical conditions could influence a blood test. My experience in challenging this evidence and success rate in court can be a great benefit to you if you are accused of driving while under the influence of any pharmaceutical or "street drug." Cross examination is an art, and a great depth of understanding of the science behind the report is critical if you hope to gain ground in challenging a blood toxicology expert. I have the knowledge, skills and experience that can benefit you in this aspect of your case.

Taking Ownership of Your Case

At the Law Office of John L. Venza Jr., I will thoroughly review the State's case against you, as I do with all my clients. Theft and property-related charges have serious consequences if you are convicted. Nobody wants to be labeled a thief for the rest of his or her life, and theft convictions can cause you to lose your current job and prevent you from obtaining a job in the future.

I defend all theft-related charges with the type of vigor and preparation you would expect from a former felony prosecutor. Dealing with these charges on your own can be intimidating and you will find you need an attorney for your theft case in Fort Bend County, Texas that is knowledgeable and confident. You can find the assistance you deserve when you contact my office.

Aggressive Negotiation and Litigation

My goal is to aggressively defend you and your rights with zeal while preparing your theft defense. I will work with prosecutors, some being my former peers, in negotiating the best possible outcome. However, if we cannot come to an agreeable plea bargain, I will force them to prove their case in trial. I recognize that not all clients require legal services during standard business hours. That is why I make myself available evenings and weekends. I serve clients in Sugar Land and the rest of Fort Bend County.
