Texas Domestic Assault Laws
Domestic assault law differs from Texas’s simple assault law in only one way—it adds a layer of family violence when the alleged victim of the violence is a/an:
- Intimate partner
- Roommate or cohabitant
Another special circumstance surrounding domestic violence charges is that a police officer can arrest someone without having witnessed any part of the incident. This raises questions of whether arrest involved the perpetrator or victim, or whether any type of assault (either actual injury or threat of imminent injury) took place.
We Are Former Prosecutors & Experienced Defense Attorneys
We have 35-plus years of experience in the criminal justice system. Several of those years include previous prosecutorial experience. This means we know how to analyze the facts against you, poke holes in the prosecution’s arguments and identify if you are eligible for special diversion programs that will keep your record clear.
Domestic Violence Diversion Program
This pre-trial diversion program allows select defendants facing family violence charges the opportunity to avoid the traditional court process. It allows these defendants to participate in a non-adversarial probation process that provides tools for defendants to use to avoid future instances of violence. If you are successful in meeting the terms of your probation, the prosecution will drop its charges against you and your record will remain clean.
