Self-Defense in Criminal Cases

Highly recommend! Colin thank you so much for your dedication. Thank you for actually wanting to sincerely help and give us the best outcome we can get. You are by far one of the best. You helped my bf reschedule a court date after it was missed and was able to give him the same plea deal. Thank you again Colin.

Absolutely wonderful! Collin was fantastic. He really fought for me and I am very happy with the outcome of my case. He really fought for my case to have a positive outcome and was supportive, easy to get ahold of when needed and walked me through everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone!!

I would highly recommend Hoeller McLaughlin. They helped my husband on a probation violation case and did an excellent job. Dustin Trammel was our attorney and he communicated with us and was supportive and helpful throughout the process. Very good legal service and would recommend this firm.

Colin by far has been one of the BEST attorneys in Ft. Worth. His dedication and attentiveness really shows not only in court but with the client and family. Great communication, easy web portal and friendly staff. 5 stars are NOT enough. Thank you Colin

I can not say enough about how grateful I am that Dustin Trammel was my attorney! Having no experience with court proceedings, Dustin explained everything and stayed in touch with me the entire time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! Very highly recommend!!

We learn from an early age the importance of self defense.  We want to be able to defend ourselves to avoid serious injury or death if someone tries to rob us or attack us.  Some take karate lessons or boxing lessons.  Some learn how to use pepper spray or learn how to shoot a gun.  Texas law recognizes this necessity and allows us to use the force necessary to protect ourselves or to protect others (like our loved ones).  Yet, many times, at the scene of the crime, law enforcement officials do not take the time to sort out who was properly defending themselves or others and who was the aggressor.  You might end up getting arrested and charged with a serious misdemeanor or felony criminal offense that you have a legitimate self defense claim on like assault, terroristic threat, gun charges, deadly conduct, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and even murder.

If you have been charged with one of these crimes and need assistance from an experienced Fort Worth criminal defense attorney in establishing your self-defense claim, then call 877-208-3382.
