Austin Violent Crimes Attorneys

Working to Protect Your Legal Rights

Statistics show that violent crime is on the rise in Texas. In fact, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the rate of violent crime in Texas increased by 5.3% in 2016, compared to a national increase of 3.2%. That rate rose even higher in 2017. These increases have caused law enforcement to crack down on violent crimes and alleged offenders. This means that, if you are accused of a violent crime, you could be facing very harsh penalties. Prosecutors will exhaust every measure available to them in order to secure a conviction.

But, there is hope. At Austin Defense Team, we work equally as hard to defend you against violent crime charges. With prior experience in law enforcement, our Austin violent crimes lawyers understand how the prosecution works, and we use this knowledge to skillfully represent you throughout the process. Remember: you are innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Our team can use every available resource to help you fight a conviction.

Contact our office online or call (512) 399-3221 to discuss your case with a member of our legal team. We offer free, confidential consultations and are available evenings and weekends by appointment.
