When Law Enforcement believes you are responsible for the death of another person, you need an attorney who has handled thousands of cases. You need an attorney who has looked in the eyes of a jury deciding the fate of someone accused of murder.
In Texas, the killing of one person by another is charged in different ways should the Grand Jury believe the death was caused by someone acting Intentionally, Knowingly, Recklessly, or with Criminal Negligence.
That Jury will have to consider whether or not the act was committed with sudden passion.
A Murder case is unlike any other in that the Jury knows the weight and gravity of the consequences of their decision and will often be swayed by the need to try to make the family of the deceased whole.
Hire an attorney who can look in the eyes of those jurors and help lead them through the swirling tempest of emotions to find the law and how it applies to the facts of the case. Hire an attorney who can help Twelve (12) people be fair to the accused as well as to the mourning family.
Who you hire matters because your life is at stake.
