At McCarty-Lrson, PLLC, we put our skill and experience to work for our clients as we defend their rights in the face of domestic violence allegations.

He uses this to lead our team to more successful defense strategies, which can help clients avoid the many negative consequences of a domestic assault conviction.
Texas Penal Code § 22.01 and § 22.02 define the offenses of domestic assault and aggravated domestic assault, which carry such penalties as:
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.
