Houston Domestic Violence Defense Lawyers

Family Violence Charges in Texas

Domestic violence, also known as family violence, is a violent crime which Texas state law defines as any number of different types of emotionally or physically violent behavior perpetrated by one person against another who is a member of the same family or household. In most cases, a family violence arrest will be based on an incident occurring between spouses or romantic partners, but it can also include other family relationships and even roommates.

Common Types of Domestic Violence Offenses

Law enforcement and prosecutors in Houston take a tough stance against domestic violence, out of a strong desire to protect the alleged victims and to punish offenders. If you have been charged with a family violence offense you are at risk of being subjected to harsh penalties for a conviction, so don't wait to retain the counsel of an experienced criminal defense firm.
