DWI/DUI, Drug Crimes, Theft and All Other Criminal Charges

Righting wrongs and correcting mistakes is challenging. Lawrence M. Tylka and Tylka Law Firm only undertake criminal representation when they believe they can make a positive difference to help someone accused of a crime. Whether assault, battery, felony or misdemeanor, we provide effective criminal defense for people accused of many different crimes:

DWI (Driving While Intoxicated)

It can be confusing to be pulled over by a police officer. Then to be ordered to perform field sobriety tests and other tests can add to the confusion — and to your ability to do the tests properly.  Be aware that you have rights.

Drug Crimes

Drug crimes range from possession or use of a small amount of drug to possession and distribution of large amounts of an illegal drug. The amount of drug involved and the way the police found it can have an important impact on a drug crime charge.


Theft represents a wide range of criminal offenses — including shoplifting, burglary, embezzlement and robbery. The charge and the penalties are related to the amount stolen as well as the method of the alleged theft.

DWI & Drugs

In Texas, a DUI charge refers to the influence of drugs, while a DWI charge refers to the effects of alcohol. Whether prescription drugs or illegal drugs, a DUI is a serious charge — as serious as a DWI charge.
