Houston Murder and Homicide Defense Lawyers

While criminal charges of any kind are considered serious, few are taken as seriously as charges of murder or homicide. The penalties associated with a conviction of these charges could not be greater, as individuals may find themselves facing years, if not a lifetime, of imprisonment. Additionally, because Texas is a capital murder state, in certain instances, those charged with murder could find themselves facing the death penalty.

In the face of penalties as grave of these, individuals accused of murder or homicide cannot afford to wait before hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer. An attorney with experience handling cases of this nature can provide an individual with the best chance at successful outcome. The attorneys at Sampson & Bové, LLC know just how overwhelming it can be to be charged with murder or homicide.
