Tenacious Texas Family Violence Defense Attorney
A domestic violence conviction can tarnish your future
A family or domestic abuse charge can affect your employment, your family and may have long term consequences on the rest of your life.
Family violence is often treated more harshly than nearly any other misdemeanor offense in Texas. A conviction can carry fines, significant jail time and loss of rights, and any following family violence arrest may be increased to a felony charge. A conviction can potentially bar you from seeing your family or children in the future, should you divorce or separate. Domestic abuse is one of the few misdemeanor offenses in Texas where a police officer can immediately arrest you without having to witness the incident. At J. Gordon Dees, Attorney at Law, A Professional Corporation, I provide aggressive criminal defense to clients who are facing a family violence arrest.
Every case is different and I help you to understand the family violence crime you are charged with and provide a strong defense against it. Once a change of family violence has been filed, only the State has the authority to dismiss the charges. The alleged victim does not have the authority to halt the prosecution. If you have been charged with a crime of family violence, you need a lawyer who is experienced, who will work zealously to defend your rights, and who has the necessary trial experience to protect your liberty. Don't leave your freedom in the hands of someone less experienced
