How a Domestic Violence Lawyer Can Help You
The consequences of a domestic violence conviction can be severe. You may face sanctions at work or lose your job, and you could deal with an uphill battle looking for new work or housing that requires a background check. Beyond a conviction, even charges of domestic violence could severely damage your reputation.
With all of this in mind, we take a multi-faceted approach to get charges dropped, reduce legal consequences that you might otherwise face, and fight a conviction in your case. Here are some of the services our lawyers can offer:
- Handle paperwork and scrutinize your case for legal options
- Fight to reduce your consequences – professional, personal, and legal
- Protect your rights for a fair and fast trial
- Work with you on building your testimony
- Assess all evidence against you and build your defense
- Fight to release on bail or to get your bail reduced
- Examine witnesses relevant to your case
- Negotiate a plea bargain, if this is the best course of action
It’s easy to feel alone when you’re facing domestic violence charges. We want to provide support that can give you great peace of mind during this process. If you’re innocent of the charges against you, we will fight to demonstrate your innocence in court.
If your case comes to a plea agreement, we will fight for reduced charges and for your second chance at a future. In either case, we’ll keep you updated on any progress throughout the process.
A Conviction Can Cost You
Domestic violence charges in Texas are covered under section 71.004 of the penal code. You may be charged with this crime if someone accuses you of assaulting a family member, threatening a family member with an act of assault, physically or otherwise abusing any member of your family, or assaulting someone while on a date.
Beyond the immediate effects of a conviction, such as jail, prison time, and housing and employment issues, you could also struggle in some other ways.
For example, you might not be able to qualify for financial aid in the future, whether for career advancement, education, or both. This could impact you for years to come, so we do everything we can to minimize these effects. That way, you can move in a positive direction with your life.
We Will Look for Opportunities to Get Your Charges Dropped
Our goal will be to get your charges dropped. To achieve this, we’ll look at the police report and listen to your story for ways to challenge your charges – both in and out of court.
For instance, if the police claimed to have probable cause to make their arrest but in fact did not, we may be able to get charges dropped against you. Or if the arresting officer neglected to read you your rights when making the arrest, we could also get charges dropped. If you asked for your lawyer and were either refused or an officer continued to question you after the fact, we could likewise use that to your advantage.
Another way we could help is by looking at the specifics of your case, such as any arguments for your self-defense or inconsistencies in witness testimonies. We’ll take every opportunity to build your case and get your charges dropped.
