Corpus Christi Murder and Manslaughter Defense Attorney

The Gould Law Firm provides aggressive defense for clients in Corpus Christi

Murder and manslaughter is defined as the unlawful killing of a human being. The difference between murder and manslaughter is that murder is committed with pre-meditation and intention, whereas manslaughter is usually unintentional, accidental or unplanned. When people commit murder or manslaughter, they are committing the most serious violent crime imaginable because they are essentially taking another person's life. This is something that is not only forbidden by law, but is also forbidden according to most peoples' beliefs and ideologies. For this reason, any time a person is accused of murder or manslaughter, he/she not only faces legal persecution, but also persecution from society in general.

In the state of Texas, people that commit murder are truly in for the fight of their lives as Texas is a capital punishment state. This means that if people are convicted of murder, they may be sentenced with the death penalty. And, even in cases where people are not sentenced with the death penalty, they can still be sentenced with life imprisonment. For most people, the thought of having to spend year upon year in prison is more than they can bare.

I would definitely recommend them - - my case was a civil case (employment contract). They are wonderful people and a pleasure to work with!!! Thank you so much!”

    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”

    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”
