Overview of Assault and Battery Charges in Texas

In Texas, assault and battery are often grouped under the term "assault" but can encompass a range of actions from threatening harm to causing physical injury to another person. The law differentiates between simple assault, aggravated assault, and sexual assault, with penalties varying based on the severity of the offense, the use of a weapon, and the injury level inflicted on the victim.

Our Defense Strategy

Case Evaluation: Each case begins with a thorough evaluation to understand the circumstances surrounding the charges. By gathering all facts, including the events leading up to the incident and any relevant witness testimony, we construct a solid foundation for your defense.

Challenging the Evidence: A cornerstone of our defense strategy involves rigorously challenging the prosecution's evidence. This can include questioning the credibility of witness statements, the legality of any obtained evidence, and the circumstances surrounding your arrest.

Self-Defense and Other Defenses: Texas law recognizes several defenses to assault charges, including self-defense, defense of others, and defense of property. We carefully assess whether these or other defenses are applicable to your case and present them forcefully during negotiations or at trial.

Negotiations and Plea Bargains: In some cases, negotiating a plea bargain may be in your best interest. Our attorneys have the experience and negotiation skills to work towards reducing charges or penalties, focusing on alternatives that can mitigate the impact on your life.

Trial Representation: If your case proceeds to trial, our legal team is prepared to offer zealous representation in court. Leveraging our comprehensive understanding of assault and battery laws and our refined courtroom strategies, we aim to achieve a not-guilty verdict or the best possible outcome based on the evidence.
