Experienced Attorneys Defending Assault And Battery Charges

Assault and battery violations and charges result for many reasons. Maybe a bar fight got out of control. An argument at home could have escalated to domestic violence because the police got involved. Or maybe the charges were the result of some other incident where you allegedly injured someone. Whether the assault was intentional or not, you need an attorney to defend your case in court.

Assault Violations Can Result In Serious Jail Time And Fines

In Texas, assault and battery cases can range from a class "C" misdemeanor, with fines up to $500, to a second degree felony, which can result in a maximum of $10,000 in fines and two to 20 years in prison.

Charges may be escalated to aggravated assault when a weapon or serious victim injury is involved. These charges can be first or second-degree felonies. The penalties for first-degree felonies elevate to a maximum of $10,000 in fines and five to 99 years in prison. Don't risk your future. Our lawyers will work for reduced or dismissed charges in your case.

Domestic Disputes Can Escalate To Formal Charges

Sometimes charges for domestic assault result when disputes among spouses, romantic partners, other family members or foster family members get out of hand. One party or a neighbor calls the police and formal charges may be filed. If convicted of the charges, you could incur expensive fines and jail time.

The main factors involved in determining penalties and sentencing if convicted are:

  • Defendant's relationship to the victim
  • Past domestic violence convictions
  • Violence involving strangulation or any form of suffocation

If convicted, you could be facing second-degree felony penalties of up to $10,000 in fines and two to 20 years in prison.
