- Intentional harm or murder
- Committing an assault-related felony
- Child endangerment
- Aggravated sexual assault
- Sexual assault
- Aggravated assault
If you are accused of knowingly or intentionally threatening another person with harm, then we can help. Our lawyers can review your case and discuss your legal options. With the help of a Plano murder and assault lawyer, you may be able to establish your innocence or get a plea bargain to reduce your sentence.
Gathering Evidence To Establish Your Innocence
In a case that involves intentional harm, our goal is to demonstrate that the prosecution failed to establish that you are guilty of the charges against you. We investigate your case to gather evidence and speak with witnesses who can testify on your behalf.
Some of the evidence we obtain may include:
- Eyewitness statements
- Expert testimony
- Clues at the crime scene
- Documents or murder reports
- Forensic evidence
Based on the evidence and the circumstances of the case, we develop a legal strategy to defend you against the murder or assault charge. Contact us today for a free case assessment.
How We Defend Your Case
The prosecution must convince a jury that you are guilty of the charges against you beyond any reasonable doubt. Therefore, we will build your case specifically to instill doubt and establish your innocence. There are several issues that we may look at when planning a defense strategy, including:
Murder or assault charges imply that your actions were intentional and that you meant to harm the victim. We may be able to show that your actions were unintentional, and the death was an accident or unexpected, even if you assaulted the person.
You are permitted to use reasonable actions to defend yourself from an assailant under Texas Statute 9.31. If you believed that you were being attacked and defended yourself, then we build a legal strategy around self-defense.
Victim’s Criminal Record or History
If the victim has a history of violence or criminal activity, then we may attempt to present this evidence to a jury. We may be able to use the evidence to demonstrate that you were acting in self-defense or that the conditions of the death were not related to a murder.
Cases that involve murder or assault may reveal that there was ‘bad blood’ or conflict between you and the alleged victim. If so, we may provide evidence that shows that there was bias from the plaintiff or prosecutions.
Improper Handling of the Case
We may argue that the police incorrectly handled your case or coerced you into admitting that you committed the crime. We may discover that evidence was tampered with or that the prosecution committed errors in building their case against you.
Why You Should Hire a Lawyer Even if You Are Innocent
Once you are charged with a violent crime, a prosecuting attorney will use their knowledge and resources to prove that you are guilty. Defending yourself against a prosecutor can be an uphill climb.
If you do not hire a lawyer, the state of Texas may appoint you a public defender. Many of these public defenders are overwhelmed with other cases and cannot give you the personal attention you deserve. You may be more likely to face a conviction if the public defender does not provide an adequate defense.
