Texas Assault Defense Attorney

Each assault defense case is unique. Someone may have been mildly injured, severely injured, killed — or scarcely injured at all. The allegedly harmed person and/or witnesses may claim that someone else acted deliberately or acted in response to something. What all assault defense cases do have in common is an accusation of wrongdoing. In any given situation, one or more of the following may be factors:

  • Self-defense
  • Exaggerated reports
  • Mistaken identity or lack of evidence to support the identification of a particular suspect
  • Multiple suspects
  • Aggravated assault, including the presence of one or more weapons — a gun, a knife or any object used to hurt or threaten someone
  • A "bar fight"
  • Drunkenness
  • Disorderly conduct
  • An altercation between neighbors over boundary disputes or other local issues
  • Road rage
  • Domestic violence
  • A "crime of passion" involving a love triangle or another relationship matter
  • Sexual assault

Only a detailed review of individual circumstances can provide a clear picture of what happened, how criminal charges developed, and how to protect your rights, freedom, and future through legal representation. If you have been accused, arrested or charged on suspicion of any type of assault, you should consult with an attorney promptly. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to reconstruct the scene and determine the best avenues of defense.

No Assault Defense Case Is Hopeless

Do not make the common mistake of deciding on your own that there is no good defense in your case. Seek legal counsel before you make statements to police or submit to questioning by investigators.
