Prosecutors have immunity for almost any decision they make as far as how to litigate a case. I am not sure what your cause of action would be as you have no right to have a murder case prosecuted quickly.
Texas does have a crime victim's bill of rights, I'd start by studying up on that. https://www.traviscountytx.gov/county-attorney/family-violence/bill-of-rightsSee question
I have a court date set for next month for a PNC hearing in texas and I dont know what PNC means
Plea Negotiation Conference- You show up and your lawyer talks to the prosecutor. You can take a plea that day, reset it (if the judge will let you), or set it for trial. It's kind of boring and you may be there a while so charge your phone and bring something to read.See question
It is my first offense I'm a 25 false calls to the police in the past four years but they said they can only charge me with 4 because the statue of limitations only let them go back 2 years. But the police is telling me that they will still hold t...

My daughter filed for divorce the end of June 2016. She paid $200 consultation and I paid $5000 on my credit card. It's early August and the Attorney says she has to come up with $1500 more for the retainer. I guess they charged for each email and...
I don't know any family lawyers in Kaufman County taking pro bono cases right now. It's just not economically feasible to pay our bills and work for free. If the father is abusive you should contact CPS.
If dad's family has a lot of money, he has a definite advantage. Your daughter needs a lawyer to assist her, Legal Aid is a good place to start.See question

Whether or not you serve time in jail depends on many factors, including your criminal history and the details of the cases against you. You need to hire a defense lawyer immediately to help make sure you don't go to jail. Most local defense firms, including ours, offer free consultations.See question
Agg assault with a deadly weapon.
A felony case begins with an indictment. That is, when the grand jury indicts your case then the case is filed against you and you start going to court etc. Now, I have no idea what it means to replace a felony, or what you were told but.... If you are facing a felony case you need to have an attorney advising you. You can't solve this case on Avvo, get a lawyer to assist ASAP.See question

I got charged with giving a kid xanax in school, possession of xanax, and under the influence. This is my charges "MAN DEL CS PG 3/4 <28G" , statue 481.114(b), and its a state jail felony.
Did you get a DWI as well? I'm not sure what "under the influence" means. State Jail Felony cases is Kaufman County should cost you between $1,000 and $5,000 for legal fees depending on which lawyer/firm you go with. It's not that easy to just quote a price, the total fee will depend on your criminal history, and how many charges you have, inter alia. Being in a school zone makes your case more difficult, and delivery always makes the prosecutors angry. I understand that you need to get a lawyer you can afford, but don't make cost your only concern. Start by calling some local attorneys, Avvo is a great resource for that. I'd recommend someone local who practices often in Kaufman County. There are some great Dallas lawyers who come to Kaufman, but generally they charge more because of how much they have to commute, and our local system is kind of weird and getting good results in Kaufman County usually comes from understanding the local criminal justice system. Lawyers I like locally are Gil Altom, Tim Hartley, Brian Corrigan, and Brandi Fernandez, to name a few. Of course I think my firm is pretty awesome at helping defendants like you, but you should shop around and we are usually not the cheapest option.See question
We have a case in Kaufman co tx, it was a divorce & a decree was entered. Then one of the attorneys re-opened it to do a modification, & then there was a lot more activity. However, the parties reconciled & from 11/04/13 until 1/30/16 there has be...
Well, first it depends on when the motion was filed, and when discovery was due. Was it filed during the original decree? Or the modification? Is there a scheduling order in the case? Trial setting? The discovery period might be over, or not.
I'd talk to your lawyer about if filing a motion to compel is a good investment at this point.See question
My daughter got herself in trouble and decided instead of dealing with the punishment she was going to say that someone sexually hurt her. CPS and the police got involved. They are both stating that they do not believe her and that she is unreliab...
That someone needs to hire a lawyer immediately. We have helped many suspects in someone's situation. You should not have someone take this polygraph until they retain counsel. Many polygraphs are actually a setup so the police can try to coerce a confession.See question
