Family Violence Lawyer Denton

You have an argument with your spouse. Things get a little heated. The police are called, and things are said. Whether those statements are true or not there is a high probability that someone will go to jail and be charged with an Assault and a request will be made for the judge to find a special finding called "family violence."

Family Violence cases are typically assault cases between members of the same family or household. While most assault cases are misdemeanors, Family Violence cases have received extra attention from state legislators and law enforcement. Penalties have increased. A second offense can be enhanced to a felony (in Texas), and there are very serious implications federally including your right to own a firearm. Further, the damage to your reputation in the community is severe. A conviction for family violence is something you need to avoid if at all possible.

In most counties, including Denton and Dallas, there are special courts that are assigned to hear family violence cases. You need a lawyer who knows the courts and the judges to obtain you the best possible solution for your specific situation. Every family violence case is different and should be treated as such. Although it is great to have the victim fill out and sign an affidavit of non-prosecution, once the DA's office gets the case, the victim might not have a say in the outcome. Don't become just another case to another lawyer. Become "the" case to "the" lawyer. Call us.
