Defense Attorneys to Trust in Texas


The government is going to devote substantial time and energy to your case. You can count on our attorneys experienced with homicide cases to bring the fight to the prosecution. We take a proactive approach to defense. This means we do not rely on the investigation of law enforcement and prosecutors. We hit the streets to conduct our own investigation. We enlist the services of experts that are at the top of their fields. In today’s criminal justice system, digital technology, biochemistry, and psychology are just a few of the areas essential to presenting the best defense in murder cases. Our experienced lawyers defend a wide range of murder and homicide-related cases, including:

  • Capital Murder – punishable by death or life in prison without parole
  • First Degree Murder – punishable by 5-99 years, or life in prison
  • Manslaughter and Intoxication Manslaughter (vehicular manslaughter)
  • Negligent Homicide


We put in the time and sweat to find creative and effective approaches to your defense strategies and challenging the prosecution’s case at every opportunity. Some of our cases have hinged on mistaken identity, self-defense, and mishandled evidence creating reasonable doubt. No two cases are alike, but experience gives your lawyer the perspective to identify and develop your best possible defensive strategy.
