Family violence is a very broad area of Texas law. Allegations of such actions can affect child custody matters, your 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms and even employment. There is no one particular statute that governs this wide area of the law, but it is important to realize that it can affect your life in more ways that most criminal charges.
The truth about domestic violence is that it is often overblown. Domestic violence is often alleged to have occurred without any criminal history attributed to its actor. Whether it is a veiled attempt to gain custody in a family law case, or an overreaction on the part of the alleged victim, we are prepared to vigorously defend you against these allegations.
When the police respond to a domestic violence call, they are looking to take someone to jail. More often than not, this is the male in the relationship, but women can be charged. All it takes is your wife or girlfriend to say she was shoved or hit and you are going downtown. Is it fair? No. Is it reality? Yes. The fact is that domestic violence does happen, but not nearly to the degree that is reported by the media and society at large.
With all of the publicity surrounding this criminal allegation, it is quite confusing and frightening if you are arrested and charged with domestic violence. You need a law firm who can cut through the red tape of protective orders and false allegations. If you have been accused of domestic violence, hiring a criminal defense attorney with domestic violence experience is your best hope for avoiding life-changing charges.
