Round Rock Domestic Violence Attorney

Accused of Domestic Violence in Texas?

Domestic violence refers to a violent crime against a family member, fiancé, boyfriend, girlfriend or domestic partner.

Many assault charges are the result of accusations of domestic violence. A first-time domestic violence offense will usually be charged as a Class C misdemeanor. A person with a prior domestic violence history, including a case that resulted in deferred adjudication, could be facing felony charges for a second offense. A person found guilty of domestic violence assault will not only lose the right to possess a firearm, the conviction can never be sealed or expunged. Early intervention by a skilled attorney is extremely important when it comes to negotiating with the prosecution for a reduction in charges or case dismissal.

It includes:

  • Threatening a person with bodily harm
  • Physical contact with a person against their wishes and in an offensive manner
  • Committing a violent act that causes injury

A combative divorce and child custody case can often result in false domestic violence charges as a way of influencing the outcome of a settlement. Once a person has been charged with domestic violence, the prosecution can pursue the case even if the alleged victim changes their mind at a later point in time.

How to Defend Against a Domestic Violence Charge

In the state of Texas, the courts view domestic violence as any violent and/or abusive criminal act committed by one member of a family or household, against another family member such as a spouse, child, significant other, or against another member of the same household. Many domestic violence cases are initiated by individuals who wish to exert a certain level of power or control over their loved ones and use physical, sexual, emotional, financial or psychological abuse to do so. Other such cases are simply moments of outrage or anger directed towards a loved one. Other cases involve false accusations, or actions taken to defend against a physical attack.

Our firm has achieved some notable verdicts in criminal cases involving domestic violence, most recently in a case in which a woman was accused of assaulting her boyfriend by throwing an object at him, causing a laceration. The firm helped the client to avoid penalties and get the charges dismissed.

If you have been accused of any type of domestic violence, you could be facing very serious charges and penalties. A conviction for domestic violence in Round Rock could mean jail time, significant fines, mandatory psychological counseling and the issuance of protective orders restricting your actions.
