What Can a Criminal Victim Lawyer Do for You?

While the TxDPS and court system strives to compensate crime victims, frequently they are unable to fully compensate the victim–especially for mental anguish and emotional trauma.

Filing a civil lawsuit gives our clients the opportunity to seek compensation for emotional damages that courts can’t recognize.

It also allows them to get closure and justice for them and their loved ones.
