David Chambers

Benjamin is an awesome Attorney and I am very satisfied with the hard work he is putting in towards my case and makes me feel very confident when I walk in the court room with him representing me. He is very straight forward and treats me like family and because I was on time with all payments he even went out of his way to bond me out when I couldn't pay bond up front and I will never forget that. No Lawyer would ever do that for their client. Thanks Ben your the best!

Criminal Defense Practice Areas

FACT: Being arrested is NOT a conviction – and being charged doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have to serve jail time or pay hefty fines.

There is a process in every legal system that we all have to honor and follow, which is why having your case examined by experienced, professional, case-winning Austin criminal defense attorneys is critical to your future. Through honest and transparent communication, we will fight to find ways to make the law work in your favor in these situations.


If you’ve been pulled over and charged with a DWI or DUI – call us immediately. The quickest way to avoid jail time and have the charges expunged from your record is by knowing your rights and working with an attorney that clearly understands the specifics of your situation – that’s GHC Law Firm.

Illegal Substance

Facing allegations of drug possession is very difficult, especially since each Texas County has its own set of laws around possession cases – and getting charged, even if it’s your first time, can lead to hefty fines and significant jail time. However, the experienced criminal defense attorneys at GHC Law Firms can quickly review your case and identify the best way to represent your rights in court.


Violence within your family, or any type of assault, is personal and painful. The confusion, stress, and burden of terrifying accusations can be very difficult to untangle and approach from an unbiased, legal perspective – which is why experienced representation is critical. The Austin criminal defense attorneys at GHC Law Firm are experts at handling personal assault charges and working to ensure your safety throughout this process.


Robbery is classified as a second-degree felony in the state of Texas, with charges resulting in 2 to 10 years in prison and fines up to $10.000 – and aggravated robbery is a first-degree felony, which can result in a life-long prison sentence. When facing robbery charges, your future depends on proof, facts, and an experienced, determined criminal defense attorney in Austin by your side.


If you are charged with something as serious as murder,  do not speak to anyone before consulting an attorney. The act of Murder, or the unlawful homicide, can lead to a conviction from 5 to 99 years in prison, depending on various circumstances. Even a negligent homicide is punishable with up to 2 years in prison. It is imperative to know your rights and work with an experienced, unbiased lawyer who understands what is at stake. GHC Law Firm is comprised of highly experienced criminal defense attorneys in Austin, TX, whose representation could make all the difference in your case.

With their knowledge and expertise, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands and well-equipped to handle your case.


Even though Texas is a gun-friendly state, it’s still fairly easy to find yourself facing weapons charges – and the Texas justice system aggressively prosecutes weapons cases. Knowing your rights and having an experienced legal team doggedly defend them is vital to fighting any weapons charge successfully. GHC Law Firm has the experience, knowledge, and resources to handle all types of gun charges. Even if the state of Texas is working against you, we aren’t.


The Texas parole system is complicated and confusing. It can also be highly distressful if you don’t have an experienced criminal defense attorney in your corner through every step of the process. Our team of highly experienced criminal defense attorneys knows the parole system, and we’ll work closely with you to build a defense, protect your rights, and fight for your freedom.


Getting a call from a child in jail is terrifying for parents. A juvenile record can carry into adulthood, making life difficult and often sabotaging efforts to get a job or go to college.

You need an aggressive defense team when facing domestic violence charges, and GHC Law Firm has the experience and tenacity to stand by your side, faithfully protecting your rights.

Expunctions / Record

The Austin criminal defense attorneys at GHC Law Firm have handled countless successful record expunctions, and we can help you succeed as well.
