Assault and Domestic Violence
Houston Assault and Spousal Abuse Defense Lawyers
The most common misconception people have about domestic violence is that your partner/spouse/girlfriend has authority to drop charges when emotions cool. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Once assault charges have been filed, only the State, not the alleged victim, decides whether charges are dismissed. Some prosecutors have a "zero tolerance" policy in assault and try family assault cases, regardless of the complainant's wishes. When an assault case has been charged, you need a lawyer who is experienced, zealous, and not afraid of going to trial.
At DeGuerin & Dickson, our defense attorneys aggressively protect the rights of people charged with assault, simple or aggravated, and stand ready and willing to try cases the prosecutor refuses to dismiss. We represent clients in the greater Houston and Harris County area as well as across Texas.
