Assault & Family Violence
Misdemeanor assault charges can become felonies very quickly if not handled properly. In addition to county jail or prison, your record may affect your ability to keep a job, obtain certain licensing, own a firearm, and live in designated areas.
If you are accused of committing assault against a roommate or relative, you could be charged with family violence. Even if the victim refuses to prosecute the case, the State of Texas may still prosecute in the victim’ place.
Make sure you are represented by an attorney who has experience and skill in handling assault family violence and assault bodily injury cases discretely and can protect your record in the process.
