Homicide & Assaultive Crime
The Most Dangerous Allegations Require the Most Effective Attorneys
The Akers Firm has developed a reputation throughout Texas as a leading firm in our aggressive defense of individuals charged with violent crime. Homicide cases are cases in which the allegations result in the death of another. As such, prosecutors treat them as seriously as it gets, and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. In most cases, this can mean life in prison or even the death penalty.
It is a fundamental right of each and every person to justifiably defend themselves from harm. That right is greater nowhere than in the State of Texas. Often, homicide cases will result from defending yourself or others from another dangerous individual, and law enforcement refuses to hear your side of the story. We’re here to change that narrative.
The Akers Firm has successfully represented individuals charged in several cases involving death. From obtaining dismissals in manslaughter allegations to obtaining a ‘no-bill’ (an acquittal at the grand jury level) on a triple-murder allegation, the Akers Firm attorneys have mounted effective defenses for individuals across Texas. Be it a case in which you have been wrongfully accused of something you had nothing to do with, or a case of self-defense, the Akers Firm attorneys are here to get you home.
We defend all types of homicide, resulting in the death of individuals, including:
- Capital Murder
- Solicitation of Capital Murder
- Intoxication Manslaughter
- Criminally Negligent Homicide
Cases in which no death results can often be just as serious. The Akers Firm has represented individuals across Texas in various assault cases, such as:
