Domestic Violence/Spousal Abuse
Allegations of domestic violence are taken very seriously by the courts.
Unfortunately the accused do not always have the benefit of the doubt.
This can be extremely unfair to those charged because in most cases of
domestic abuse, there are different versions of the truth. That is why
it is so important to have an aggressive legal fighter in your corner.
Otherwise, if convicted, you may face jail time, a restraining order and
a permanent record. In addition, a conviction of domestic violence can
even affect your parental rights.

When you face domestic assault charges, we know that you have a story to
tell as well. Maybe your spouse logged a false complaint. Perhaps the
assault was truly an accident. Maybe you injured a family member while
defending yourself against an attack. Or perhaps you have made a one-time
mistake. Regardless of your circumstances, our job is to be
your legal advocate, fight for your rights and help you find the best possible
results for your charge.
What Happens If I Am Facing A Second Misdemeanor Charge Of Domestic Assault?
In the state of Texas, if you have been convicted of a domestic violence
misdemeanor, any subsequent misdemeanor charge will automatically be raised
to a felony offense.
Should I Try To Sort Things Out With The Police On My Own?
If you have been charged with an assault crime or are being questioned
by the police, do not give a statement without consulting an attorney.
Many assume if they give law enforcement officials an explanation of the
event, things will be cleared up and the charges will be dropped, but
this is usually not the case. Police will use what you say against you,
and they will give prosecutors your statement as ammunition. Your best
bet is to contact our law firm. We will do the speaking for you. We understand
the law and your rights, and how to protect your future.
