Violent Crimes in Texas

Experienced Defense from Our Houston Criminal Lawyers

The Texas Department of Public Safety reports that a violent crime is committed in this state once every 5 minutes. Aggravated assault occurs every 7 minutes, robbery every 18 minutes, rape every hour and murder every 8 hours. These crimes are serious, and yield extremely harsh consequences if you are convicted.

Are you wrongfully accused of a crime?

Many of the people who come to our firm for help with fighting violent crime charges have been wrongfully accused. This is common in cases where the suspect was not the aggressor but was actually acting in self-defense. Perhaps you never even hit anyone, yet you are now being accused of some type of violence. Maybe you were mistakenly identified as the perpetrator of a crime you didn't commit.

Even if you did commit the crime, our experienced criminal defense team at Guerra & Farah, PLLC is ready to help you by ensuring that you receive fair treatment under law and are not subjected to harsh criminal penalties.

Fighting Violent Crime Charges in Houston, TX

We approach every case we represent with the idea that the case will go all the way to a full jury trial. This means that we invest enormous amounts of time and effort into investigating the situation, both by reviewing the evidence which the prosecutor is using and by conducting our own independent investigation of the situation to discover any evidence or testimony which may be valuable in clearing your name. For example, it is sometimes possible to have domestic violence charges dismissed by demonstrating that the alleged victim made false accusations out of a desire to obtain the upper hand in a divorce. Even when it is not possible to prove the innocence of our client or have the charges dismissed, we may still be able to get the charges reduced, such as from murder to manslaughter.
