El Paso Assault & Violent Crime Defense Lawyer
Criminal Accusation Defense Attorney in El Paso
If you have been charged with assault in Texas, it can feel like the cards are unfairly stacked against you. The police and prosecutor may take the word of the victim as 100 percent truth, disregarding your version of the events. These types of criminal charges carry severe penalties but so do these types of criminal accusations. Even if your charges are dropped or dismissed, being accused of domestic violence will continue to follow you for years to come.
At the Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz, we understand that there is more than one side to every story, especially in matters of assault. In cases of domestic violence, one spouse may create false allegations as a way to "get back" at the other. In other instances, the alleged assault was actually self-defense. That is why our lawyers can take the time to listen to your story and give you hope knowing we are here to protect you.
Did you know? Even if an assault victim drops charges, the state of Texas can still proceed with your prosecution. Contact us today for legal help!
