Are you charged with assault against someone in your family, or someone you are dating, or someone you are living with? Assault family violence is one of the most difficult criminal cases. Even if the victim wants to "drop charges" you will have to go to court. In Travis County there is a family violence court. The only type of case this court handles is domestic violence. There is no other criminal court set up solely for the purpose of handling only one kind of case. That should tell you how serious an assault family violence case is.
Most people who call our office with a family violence case have never been charged with a crime. They cannot believe that the prosecutor will not drop charges if their husband, or wife, or boyfriend, or girlfriend says that they do not want the case prosecuted. You need a lawyer who will fight for your rights.
Did you know that even if you take deferred adjudication probation on a domestic violence case you can be charged with a felony if you are accused a second time? There are many other bad consequences of a family violence case. You must hire an attorney who will defend your rights.
