If your case does go to trial, our attorney will support and advise you through each step of the trial proceedings including:

  • Selection of the jury (in some cases)

  • Presenting opening statements

  • Cross-examination of witnesses

  • Closing statements

Once both sides have made their case, the jury or the judge will deliberate and determine the verdict. In Texas, the jury’s verdict must be unanimous for conviction. If a unanimous verdict cannot be agreed upon, a mistrial is declared.
