Accused Of Committing Domestic Violence? We Can Help.
The police take domestic violence charges very seriously. If called, they are likely to make an arrest. The accused face enormous stakes. If convicted, you could be barred from seeing your loved ones and from entering your own house. You could lose your professional license or your right to possess a firearm.
This is why it is so important to enlist the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer before making any important decisions. Attorney Cheryl Shooks Brown has more than 20 years of experience defending those accused of domestic violence and other violent crimes in Houston and throughout surrounding areas. As a former prosecutor, she knows how to stand up to prosecutors seeking to convict her clients and impose the harshest possible penalties.
Defending Against Assault Charges
The penalties for assault in Texas range from small fines to life in prison depending upon the severity of the charge, the defendant’s criminal record and other factors.
Attorney Cheryl Shooks Brown is well-versed in successful assault defense strategies and is here to use them on your behalf. In some cases, it may be appropriate to argue self-defense, whereas in other cases, it may be appropriate to argue mistaken identity or pursue some other line of argument. Whatever the circumstances, we will work aggressively to help you obtain a favorable result. To support our clients’ cases, we aggressively search for exculpatory evidence in eyewitness testimony, surveillance footage and other sources.
The accused are often found guilty in the court of public opinion without the benefit of due process. Remember, you are innocent until proven guilty in the eyes of the law. If you have been charged with assault, we are here to protect your rights and your reputation.
