Guiding you through life’s toughest moments.

Helping You Fight For Your Freedom After A Violent Crime Charge

In Texas, violent crime convictions come with harsh penalties that can take the rest of your life away from you. If you face violent crime charges, such as assault, sex crimes or homicide, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight for you. I am attorney Abundio Rene Cantu, and I have years of experience working on both sides of the criminal justice system.

Before founding The Cantú Law Firm, I worked as a prosecutor, focusing on a wide range of criminal charges. Having first-hand, insider experience in our legal system gives me a unique ability to develop strong legal strategies and defenses tailored to your unique circumstances. I know the arguments and tactics the state will use against you. At The Cantú Law Firm in Laredo, we will work together to challenge these arguments and protect your freedom.

Defending You Against A Wide Range Of Violent Crimes

Retaining an experienced criminal defense attorney early in your case can increase your chances of successfully avoiding harsh penalties and a permanent criminal record. Depending on the severity of the charges, you may face a lifetime in prison, large fines and impacts on your immigration status.

From a minor altercation to a near-fatal fight, a wide range of circumstances can lead to violent crime charges. An arrest may come with charges of:

  • Assault and battery
  • Domestic violence or abuse
  • Aggravated assault
  • Kidnapping
  • Armed robbery
  • Homicide
  • Manslaughter
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Sex crimes

Defending those accused of violent crimes can be difficult and requires experience and skill to build a dynamic and successful defense. Depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, your defense may include lack of evidence, self-defense, the negligence of the victim and acting out of passion, intoxication or mental illness.
