Assault Defense

Confrontations quickly turn into criminal charges. Police can make determinations unfairly. Self defense and false accusations should not lead to a conviction. We investigate witnesses and accusers in every case. Do not become the victim.​There are various ways a person can be charged with assault. 

Two of the most common are:

Assault Causing Bodily Injury is committed by a person who knowingly, intentionally, or recklessly causing bodily injury to another, including a person’s spouse. This charge can be a Class A misdemeanor up to a 2nd Degree Felony. Texas Penal Code §22.01(a)(1) (2017).

Aggravated Assault is committed when an assault also causes serious bodily injury or uses or exhibits a deadly weapon during the commission of the assault. Texas Penal Code §22.02 (2017).
