Assault & Violent Crimes Defense

Violent Crime Charges are Very Serious in the State of Texas.

In Texas, a violent crime conviction can keep you from certain jobs and prevent you from holding licenses, including the license to carry a gun.  If you have been charged with a violent crime, the best thing you can do is to work with a Houston Defense Lawyer who has extensive experience representing people who have been in your situation. This is not something that every defense attorney has.  Assault is a crime that involves the use of violence, threat of violence and/or physical force and coercion.  There are numerous types of assault related crimes.
