Assault Attorney

Most people think of assault as a violent fight, however, the Texas Penal Code defines assault as

" ... causeing offensive or provocative physical contact with another...???

In some instances, a prosecutor may decide the slightest touch only be necessary to file the charges against you, which makes it important you select an experienced criminal defense attorney familiar with assault law.

Chapter 22 of the Texas Penal Code sets forth several Assault Crimes beyond simple assault. The Code includes assault resulting in serious bodily injury, assault on an officer or emergency personnel, sexual assault, aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a child or the elderly, and terrorist threats.

Another category of assault handled by our Attorney is Family Assault. Family Assault is an assault, but due to the marital or dating relationship of those involved, the law classifies the conduct under a different charge. Family Assault can carry serious penalties, often times more severe than a typical assault or fight.
