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.
