Russ Argues Against Death Penalty in Austin Trial

Arrest and criminal charges can happen to almost anyone, especially in a large and varied metropolis like the Austin-Travis county area.  You may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, or falsely accused, or simply made a poor choice for which the legal consequences far outweigh the damage done.

Prosecutors and judges in Austin have a well deserved reputation for firmly prosecuting folks charged with criminal violations, and especially for seeking to impose a substantial amount of counseling, treatment and supervision on folks charged with crimes.  This simple fact makes it all the more important that if you are accused of a crime in Travis county you hire an attorney who has all the tools to fight on your side.
