Assault and Domestic Violence
There are many reasons why incidents of domestic violence occur. Sometimes a couple is in the middle of a divorce and a heated argument goes too far. Other times alcohol may fuel a household fight. And in many instances, a person makes a one-time terrible mistake when he or she threatens or injures a family member.
Regardless of the cause of your incident, the Texas courts take matters of domestic violence very seriously. So if you have been charged with this offense, it is important to get a qualified attorney on your side.
Addressing Your Charges Of Domestic Abuse
At the Jim Ross Law Group, we understand what you are up against after being charged with domestic violence. We know the state’s attorney will waste no time building his or her case against you. We understand that a protective order may force you to leave your own home. And we realize the stigma that will come with an actual domestic violence conviction. That is why it is essential to get our law firm involved as soon as possible.
We work diligently to help you find favorable solutions to your charges. Sometimes this means we advocate for a fair plea bargain, while other times we seek to fully dismiss the charges. And when the case calls for it, our lawyers are fully prepared to defend you at trial in order to protect your best interests.
A lot of domestic violence charges are made in the heat of the moment, with the accuser later recanting or deciding not to press charges. However, in Texas, the state can proceed with prosecution regardless of the accuser’s wishes.
