Why Hire an Attorney for Assault of Family Member?
Family matters and passions about love, marriage and relationships can bring out the best and the worst in people and can create complicated emotional situations. When police are called to the scene of a domestic quarrel, the matter is no longer fully within the control of those involved. If an arrest is made, prosecution will be pursued under strict domestic violence laws, regardless of whether an alleged victim chooses to file charges or not. If you have been arrested or accused of any domestic abuse offense, it is imperative to obtain exemplary legal counsel from a Houston domestic violence lawyer.
Many times an individual is arrested because of a quarrel he had with his spouse. After things calm down, the accusing spouse wants things to go back to normal. However, this is impossible because of the pending family assault case. It seems reasonable to her that all she needs to do is tell the prosecutor that she doesn’t want them involved and wants the case dropped. She is shocked to find out that the Assistant District Attorney is not going to abide by her request. In these circumstances, the charged spouse may think she is not doing enough to make the case go away, and they are both confused.
The law is a highly complex area, and successful negotiation and defense requires specialized training and experience. Your attorney can help protect your legal rights and interests through each step of the process, from hearings regarding protective orders to pre-trial negotiation with prosecutors and strong action in the courtroom during possible trials and appeals. When your future is hanging in the balance – potential criminal record, custody issues, living arrangements, involvement in the lives of your children – it is critical that you have experienced and aggressive legal representation who is committed to defending your case.
