    Domestic violence, for the most part, shares many of the same aspects with a simple assault on any individual: injury, threats, or unwanted physical contact. In these cases, however, such action is considered domestic violence if the victim is currently or was previously in a romantic relationship with the defendant, or if the victim is a member of the defendant’s family or household.

    With first-hand knowledge of how the State handles misdemeanor and felony assault crimes, our domestic violence defense lawyers can analyze a case of family violence from the prosecution’s point of view and develop strategies to effectively defend clients against charges of domestic assault, spousal abuse, continuous violence against a family member, aggravated domestic assault, child abuse, and all other family-related offenses in Texas.
