  • Capital murder
  • Murder
  • Felony murder
  • Involuntary manslaughter
  • Intoxication manslaughter
  • Criminally negligent homicide

The punishments for these offenses range from six months in state jail (part of the Texas Prison System) all the way to life in prison or even death. With so much at stake, a person being investigated for or who has been charged with homicide has everything to lose. We also help clients in Bryan and Brazos County.

Handling Complex Charges in Bryan, TX

Homicide prosecutions are complex and can be very technical. An attorney defending a citizen accused of such a crime must be able to deal with medical testimony, search and seizure law, confession law, DNA evidence, and crime scene investigation technique. It is not enough to simply be good at these areas; an effective attorney must also have years of courtroom experience and the ability to communicate effectively with jurors.
