The short and truthful answer to “How much will this cost?” is: it depends.
Almost nothing is more terrifying and stressful than being charged with a felony homicide. Consequences for being convicted of this kind of offense—including murder, manslaughter, and reckless manslaughter—can be severe, including life in prison or even capital punishment (the death penalty). Texas is one of the worst places in the United States to face homicide charges, since it is known throughout the country for its harsh sentences for people convicted of these crimes.
Finding a criminal defense team with the expertise needed to position a homicide case for success is critical. An attorney must understand the specific evidentiary rules that apply and keep abreast of complex, changing case law in order to know how to properly investigate and prepare the defense strategy.
