Help for All Violent Crime Cases

We have handled violent crime cases throughout Texas, including:

  • Armed robbery—In Texas, armed robbery is committing theft while carrying a firearm or other weapon. It can be charged as a first degree felony.
  • Weapons crimes—Such as when someone is caught carrying a firearm without permission, or in a place where they are not allowed to carry, such as a church, school, or courthouse. It is also illegal to possess weapons such as brass knuckles, short barrel shotguns, and automatic firearms.
  • Kidnapping—Knowingly abducting a child or an adult. This is often associated with ransom crimes, hostage situations, or terrorizing someone. It is a felony.
  • Sexual assault—Usually classified as a first or second degree felony, this includes rape and is heavily prosecuted in the state of Texas.
  • Assault & aggravated assault—The intent to harm is usually charged as a first or second degree felony with steep fines and a substantial prison sentence.
  • Manslaughter/murder—Knowingly or unknowingly causing the death of another person is a felony, leading to at least a year in prison. However, if the prosecution can prove intent, or if the act was premeditated, consequences and sentencing will be far more severe. Our lead attorney, E.R. (Ned) Turnbull, is approved to try capital murder cases
  • Domestic violence—When it comes to domestic violence in Texas, the laws can vary. When there is premeditated violence or severe injury, you can face a felony charge, leading to lengthy prison sentences and large fines. The laws for assault by choking are usually felonies. As it is an intentional act of violence toward someone, it is likely to carry large fines and a lengthy prison sentence. 
  • Choking or assaulting a family member—In Texas, the laws for assault by choking are generally limited to third degree felonies. As it is an intentional act of violence toward someone, it is likely to carry large fines and a lengthy prison sentence.
