Domestic Violence Defense Attorneys

In the state of Texas, the criminal justice system takes family violence and the violation of protective orders very seriously and aggressively pursues convictions against those accused of violence. If you have been charged with family violence, assault or the violation of a restraining order, it is important to have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side to protect your rights.

At the Shapiro Law Firm in Plano, our attorneys have been representing individuals in Collin County and the Dallas-Fort Worth area for more than 40 years. We have the legal knowledge to build an effective case for your defense and will protect your rights during the entire process. It is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after an arrest to maximize your options.

Levels of Charges in Texas Family Violence Cases

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your arrest, the level of your charge may change, as well as the potential penalties that accompany a conviction on that charge. A simple assault is a Class C offense, while an aggravated assault that results in a serious bodily injury or involves a deadly weapon is classified as a second-degree felony. It is important to understand what your rights are in these cases and what you could be facing down the road.

Our lawyers will thoroughly review your case to determine what happened, whether the events in question happened the way they were alleged and whether your rights were violated at any time during the process. You can put your confidence in our ability to look at your side of the story and work for the reduction or dismissal of your charges.
