Fort Bend Domestic Violence Attorney
Arrest and conviction on domestic violence charges is a serious matter, which is why you need a knowledgeable, hard-hitting domestic violence attorney. A conviction for domestic or family assault will likely remain on your criminal record, impacting your ability to find a job and establish visitation rights with your children if you are divorced. Since most cases of domestic violence result in a restraining order, you could be required to relinquish ownership of your firearms or submit to electronic monitoring. At The David Hunter Law Firm in Fort Bend County, TX, I gather all relevant information to create a strong domestic assault defense. In many cases, an angry girlfriend, spouse or ex-spouse alleges he or she was the victim of domestic violence simply to have a boyfriend, spouse or ex-spouse removed from the premises. As a domestic violence attorney with years of experience both as a judge and lawyer, I make sure all the facts are brought forward, telling your side of the story before the court makes any determination.

Considering all the Facts — Telling Your Side of the Story
In order to create a solid domestic assault defense, I consult investigators to interview neighbors or witnesses, collect medical information and assess the background of the alleged victim. If the victim claims he or she was injured, is there a record of an emergency room visit? If there are bodily wounds, are they consistent with the allegations? Does the alleged victim have a history of drug or alcohol abuse? Is he or she being treated for depression or other psychological conditions? These are the kinds of questions any domestic violence attorney should be answering for you.
Depending on the case, gathering these and other kinds of information may be important if you acted in self-defense or were assaulted in the past. Too often, police arrive and arrest the boyfriend, husband or ex-spouse under the assumption it must be the male who is responsible for causing the disturbance. I make sure your side of the story is presented and the facts supporting your domestic assault defense are made known to the judge.

It's important to hire a domestic violence attorney as soon as possible after you've been arrested for family domestic violence. If found guilty, you could be sentenced to jail and end up with a permanent criminal record. Since most employers have a zero-tolerance policy regarding criminal charges, you could lose your current job.
