Powerful And Personalized Criminal Defense Since 2008.

Strong Representation Against Assault Charges

Assault charges are a serious matter that requires serious representation. Whether emotions got heated, or another person was the aggressor, all that matters now is that you are doing everything possible to defend yourself. The first step in securing that defense is meeting with a skilled Texas attorney.

At the Law Office of David D. White, PLLC, I have been protecting clients against criminal charges for nearly 20 years. From my office in Austin, I do everything in my power to overcome your assault or aggravated assault charges.

What Is Different About Aggravated Assault Charges?

A person who deliberately causes, threatens or endangers another person with serious bodily harm, they will likely receive charges for aggravated assault. These charges of a second-degree felony can result in sentencing of up to 20 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. I can work with you to build a defense against these charges.

Defenses Against Assault Charges

It can be hard to imagine what is a valid defense in these cases, but there are more than you may expect. Depending on the unique factors of your case, some defenses in your situation may include:

  • Self-defense
  • Protecting others
  • Protecting property
  • You were forced to engage in the assault
  • You were not in a sound mental state at the time of the assault

I take the time to learn about the unique factors in every case I take so I can provide my clients with the thorough and driven representation they deserve. If you believe you will face assault charges soon, or you already are, now is the best time to contact a lawyer you can count on.
