Defending People against Assault Charges in Texas

Just as an assault charge can arise out of a variety of circumstances, there is a wide range of charges that the State can press against individuals caught in the middle of a dispute. Whether a fight breaks out between strangers, acquaintances, or even members of the same household, a formidable defense against an assault charge requires an aggressive, skilled trial attorney. Police officers rarely witness these fights first-hand. Since they show up after the fact, they have to rely on often unreliable eyewitness testimony when they make the decision to arrest someone. Individuals facing assault allegations should seek legal counsel to prepare a defensive strategy and to protect themselves from making inadvertent incriminating statements to law enforcement.
