Domestic violence charges, or family violence as it is called in Texas, are a very serious matter, often loaded with emotion and passion. An allegation of family violence has the potential for lifelong consequences for the defendant, the alleged victim and their family members. In Texas, a call to the police in relation to domestic assault will almost always result in an arrest of one of the parties involved.
We work closely with our clients to understand the circumstances surrounding the charges, and employ our experience to defend the rights and reputation of the accused.
If you are being investigated for domestic violence or have already been charged never agree to speak to the police without an attorney present. Investigators use many different tactics to elicit confessions and other incriminating statements from suspected offenders.
