Understanding Murder Charges and Possible Penalties as Defined by Texas Law
While Texas law defines four types of homicide, only two are considered murder. This includes:
Murder occurs when someone intentionally takes the life of another person, or when you engage in reckless behavior that can — and does — take their life. Murder is generally a first-degree felony. Penalties for a murder conviction depend heavily on the facts of the case but may include:
- Between 5 and 99 years in state prison; and
- A fine of up to $10,000.
Capital murder is a capital felony, the most serious of all crimes in Texas. There are several ways someone can commit capital murder, including:
- Intentionally killing a police officer or other first responder; or
- Intentionally killing someone during the commission of another serious crime such as kidnapping, rape, arson, or robbery; or
- Killing someone for money or hiring someone to kill another person; or
- Intentionally killing more than one person.
The penalties if convicted of capital murder may include:
- The death penalty;
- Life in prison without parole; or
- Life in prison with the possibility of parole

Let Us Get Involved Early
Give us a call before you agree to discuss the case with the police or participate in an interrogation. You have the right not to cooperate and wait on your attorney, and this will not implicate you in the crime.
We can help you decide if you want to assist with the investigation, what you want to tell them, and what type of questions you should answer. We can also accompany you to these interrogations and ensure you have representation every step of the way.
We Will Investigate Your Case Ourselves
We know how the prosecution collects evidence and builds a case against those they accuse of these serious crimes. The best way we can build a strong defense is investigating the case in the same way. This means not only investigating the crime itself, but also looking at the police work, how they conducted their investigation and gathered evidence, and how they handled any forensic evidence in the case.

We Will Employ a Strong Defense Strategy in Your Irving Murder Case
The sooner we can go to work on your case, the better. We like to get started before they arrest you and long before you face charges. While we can still help after your arrest, we have more options for giving you the support and guidance you need if we are there from the very beginning.
We recommend giving us a call as soon as you realize you may be a person of interest to police. This may be when you learn about the investigation or when they ask to speak with you about the case. When we get to work early, we may be able to clear your name before they ever file charges against you.
Even if we cannot clear your name, we can get a head start on building an aggressive defense that helps us:
- Secure reduced charges, often manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide
- Negotiate a reduced sentence
- Make it difficult for prosecutors to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt
Depending on what we uncover about how the police handled the investigation, we may also be able to get evidence barred from court or take other steps to weaken the case against you.
