Assault Attorney in Dallas, TX

Aggressive Representation for Assault Charges - (888) 867-5191

Assault is one of the most commonly misunderstood criminal allegations. While many may believe that they cannot be prosecuted when no physical contact or injury occurs, the fact remains that assault only requires the attempt or threat of physical violence in order to be prosecuted.

According to Texas Law, you can be charged with assault if:

  • You intentionally caused physical injury or harm to another individual
  • You made threats of causing physical harm to someone else
  • You intentionally made physical contact in order to provoke or offend someone

Penalties for assault can be incredibly severe. If you, your loved one, or someone you care about has recently been arrested and/or charged with any assault offense in the Dallas area, you need to equip yourself with legal representation that has the experience, resources, and willingness to fight relentlessly on your behalf.

At the Mathur Law Offices, P.C., our legal team is prepared to handle all assault charges, including those involving domestic violence. Assault charges may include any of the following.

Simple Assault

Assault is a Class A misdemeanor offense that occurs when one person intentionally threatens violence, causes offensive physical contact, or causes bodily injury to another. Punishment includes up to $4,000 in fines, up to one year in jail, or both. When assault is committed against a public servant, a family member, a government contractor, an emergency service personnel, security officer, or other certain individuals, elevated charges and penalties may arise.

Aggravated Assault

As defined by § 22.02 of the Texas Penal Code, aggravated assault occurs when an assault causes serious bodily injury or when a deadly weapon is used. Although aggravated assault is commonly prosecuted as a second-degree felony, punishable by 2 to 20 years imprisonment, enhanced charges and sentencing may arise when certain aggravating circumstances are involved. Aggravating circumstances may include aggravated assault committed against a public servant, committed from a motor vehicle, or the discharge of a firearm, among others.

Sexual Assault

Assault charges may also refer to crimes that involve nonconsensual sexual conduct. Intentional sexual contact without another person's consent or against a child under the age of 17 can result in felony sexual assault charges. Prior criminal convictions and various aggravating circumstances can also enhance penalties. Anyone facing sexual assault charges should be aware that prosecutors are eager to convict offenders and that prosecute accused offenders zealously.

Aggravated Sexual Assault

When a person causes serious bodily injury or exhibits or uses a deadly weapon during the commission of a sexual assault, they can be prosecuted for aggravated sexual assault. As a second-degree felony, this charge is punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison, and possibly up to $10,000 in fines. Should aggravating circumstances be involved, charges may be elevated to a first-degree felony, which is punishable by 5 to 99 years imprisonment, or a life sentence.

Potential Defenses to Assault Charges

In order to successfully convict you of assault charges, the prosecutor must be able to prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. It is important to work with an attorney who can help you build a strong, effective defense strategy against your assault allegations.

Some possible defenses can include:

  • Self-defense - If you acted out in fear of being harmed, you may be able to claim the act as self-defense.
  • Mistaken identity - It may be possible that eyewitnesses wrongfully identified you as the wrongdoer, especially if the scene was in a crowded area.
  • Defense of others or property - If you committed the act in order to protect someone else or your own property, we may be able to use this defense in your favor.

Our team works hard to evaluate all possible options to get your assault charges dropped or dismissed.

  • Citizenship

    “Ignatius, and his team, did a wonderful job on my journey to becoming a naturalized US citizen. They were there with my husband and I from the very beginning, until the Oath Ceremony. In the beginning, we had a wonderful consultation with Sanjay, where he explained everything step by step, and they presented all the necessary paperwork to the government for each step that we took. Part of our journey was with Anamika, where she helped us get through the first 2 parts of the legal process, and the final part was with Ignatius, who assisted us with the naturalization part. Thank you, Ignatius, for being there with me during the interview process. Your presence helped to ease my mind.”
