SUMMARY   Services Excellence Summary

Firm providing services to clients in a variety of fields including family law, criminal defense, personal injury and probate. Justifications and Excuses are the two main types of defenses in Texas. The justifications are used to absolve someone of their criminal liability, even if they have committed the offense. Self-defense is the most common case. Self-defense is a case where a criminal act has been committed but it was justified. A general defense that is used oftentimes is the excuse. It occurs when a person’s mental state is so affected by events beyond their control, that they cannot be held responsible for the actions. Duress is an example. A person may commit a crime under duress if they are threatened with serious injury or death. Chapter 9 of the Texas Penal Code contains a list of justifications, including public duty, necessity and self-defense. Public duty is intended primarily for those in law enforcement or who are obligated to protect another person based on an existing legal relationship. This defense is used when an actor believes that the act was necessary in order to prevent a more serious harm. Most self-defense claims are common. The use of self-defense is not permitted in the case of verbal provocation alone. Self-defense can be justified by using non-deadly forces when an average person believes that the action is necessary and the individual feels it is necessary. Legally, only deadly force can be used in self-defense. Non-deadly forces are legal whenever they're justified. In self-defense lawsuits, much of the dispute is whether the use of violence by the actor constitutes deadly or whether the victim's force also constitutes lethal force.
