Violent Crimes and Self-Defense

Texas deals with violent crimes differently than other offenses—opportunities for probation are more limited and prison sentences require longer service terms prior to parole. Unfortunately, police departments often file these cases with the district attorney’s office despite valid defenses like self-defense, defense of another, or protection of property. Such filings lead to life-altering events for the accused.

An exceptional attorney can change the course of these events.

Why Madson Castello, PLLC? 


Most criminal attorneys have never walked an accused person out of this type of allegation back into their lives, but we have—multiple times. With more than 30 years of criminal experience and 300 trials between us, we have handled hundreds of these cases as prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys. Understanding the prosecutor’s mindset and the defenses available in these types of cases, we can analyze a specific incident and identify valid defenses and case weaknesses. Our firm has achieved great results in many cases—including reductions to lesser charges and dismissals.

Personal Attention

Madson Castello, PLLC, is committed to providing extensive, personalized attention. We know what it takes to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients. Unlike law firms that depend upon high volumes of cases, we choose to work with few clients for exceptional results. If that sounds like what you are looking for, we are an ideal firm.
