Assault Bodily Injury & Domestic Violence

If you are reading this page, you may have learned how easy it is to be facing a criminal charge for Assault. It can be hard to believe that all a person has to do is accuse you of assaulting them and suddenly you find yourself in the unbelievable position of being removed from your home, facing jail time, a criminal record, and worst yet, losing custody of your children.

“How can that be? It’s he said she said, right?”

Right, but guess who’s in jail or out on bond while the courts decide who to believe? You. Until you are actually charged with a crime you did not commit, you will never fully appreciate the role of a good criminal defense attorney. When you are charged with Assault, a good criminal defense attorney will do everything in his power clear your name.

You may find yourself charged with one of many different categories of assault offenses:

  • Assault by contact
  • Assault Bodily Injury – Family Member
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Sexual Assault
  • Deadly Conduct
  • Terroristic Threat

Regardless of the charge in Texas, being charged with an assault offense is a serious matter. It is important to hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Assault charges carry serious consequences, and time is often a critical component. Please contact me as soon as possible.

Domestic violence is a very serious allegation and can bring very severe penalties. It can result in employment difficulties as well as jeopardize your parental rights. It is important to hire a criminal defense attorney that will vigorously defend your rights.

As a former Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney, one of my positions was that of a Felony Prosecutor in the Family Violence Unit.

Prosecutors in the Family Violence Unit have the special function of only handling domestic violence related cases in Tarrant County Criminal Court 5. Those cases include Assault Bodily Injury Family Member, Terroristic Threat, Interfering with a 911 call, and Violation of a Protective Order.

My experience in that court gives me a special advantage for my clients. I have a very complete understanding of how County Criminal Court 5 works, and I will fight as hard as I can to protect your name. For me, it’s about more than just keeping you out of jail, it’s your name. Please call me at the Law Office of Stephen Handy as soon as possible to set up a consultation.
