Domestic Violence and Assault
A criminal charge of domestic violence is a case that needs the careful and experienced attention of a reliable criminal defense attorney. The consequences of your conviction can be so potentially significant and life-changing that the decisions you make today may be with you for years or decades down the line.
The lawyer you hire makes a difference, so make sure you hire someone with a proven record in and out of the courtroom.
I am Dave Howard, Attorney at Law, and I have been helping people throughout Williamson and Travis Counties since 1993. When you are charged with a serious criminal offense, I will be there to help you fight for your rights and protect your future.
In Texas, the police are instructed that if called, they need to act on almost any evidence of domestic violence. Even people who may have been acting in self-defense are often arrested, and the results are immediate. Prosecutors and law enforcement are aggressive about these cases, and the consequences can include:
- Jail time
- Restraining and protective orders
- Court required treatment
- Loss of civil and gun ownership rights
- Potential felony charges for second arrest
- Court ordered separation from your family or children
- Eviction from your own home
You need an attorney to fight these accusations. Even a minor misdemeanor conviction today can set you up for a felony conviction down the road.
Many of my clients are shocked at how suddenly even an accusation of domestic violence can impact and interrupt their lives. An argument can quickly change from a fight between spouses into a criminal matter with consequences that last decades.
My office will help you fight the charges, fully review your case and work to minimize the consequences. I take your case head-on and put years of experience behind your defense.
Every situation and every case is as unique as the people involved. Whether you have been unfairly charged or you need strong representation for a serious criminal charge, I will put my ability and resources behind you.
