A Compassionate Counselor – An Aggressive Defender

A criminal charge for a seemingly minor crime can result in lifelong consequences in Texas. In addition to fines and jail time, a conviction of a misdemeanor charge can lead to a permanent criminal record that affects your parental rights and your employment for many years.

I was born and raised in Brazoria County, and opened Dora L. Bonner Attorney at Law over two decades ago. I am driven by helping those who need legal counsel most and am passionate about defending people in my community accused of misdemeanor crimes, including:

  • finger print with handcuffsTheft
  • Shoplifting
  • Assault
  • Drug charges
  • DUIs
  • Violent crimes

My practice is guided by my Christian values. I work to not only put up an aggressive defense on your behalf, but to set you on a better path forward. As a result, I am not only your criminal defense attorney, but also a trusted counselor.

Protecting The Rights And Futures Of Juveniles

It is a myth that a person's record is automatically and permanently sealed once he or she becomes an adult. If your child is convicted of a crime as a juvenile, there is a risk that the conviction will follow him or her for many years — even for a lifetime.

Depending on the severity of the charge, penalties for juvenile crimes can include:

  • Fines
  • Detention
  • House arrest
  • Treatment programs
  • Jail time

These penalties can remain on a juvenile's record even through adulthood. The charges alone can sometimes limit a juvenile's scholarship and college admission opportunities.

To best protect the rights of your child, you need a lawyer who will fight for their future. I will provide a compassionate juvenile defense, working to minimize the effects of these charges on the future of your child.
