Austin Assault And Family Violence Lawyer
Assault charges stem from a variety of altercations, including domestic disputes, fights in bars, road rage incidents and altercations with police.
Assault is one of the most common charges encountered in Travis County, but that does not mean you can take an assault charge lightly. If you have been charged with assault of any kind, you face a possible jail sentence and a permanent criminal record that can have long-term consequences on your career and your family life.
If you are charged with assault, you may face both criminal and civil charges. In addition to being fined, convicted or jailed, you may have to pay compensatory damages to the victim as well. If you have been arrested on assault charges, your first call should be to an experienced lawyer.
At the Austin, Texas, Law Office of Thomas Swain, PLLC, we offer experienced criminal defense against assault charges and other violent crimes. We begin each case by reviewing every detail of police reports, statements and any evidence that exists. We will interview witnesses to determine whether various accounts of what occurred corroborate.
