LEGAL SUPPORT IN MATTERS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Texas law defines domestic violence as any act between family members or dating partners that is intended to cause harm or a credible threat of harm. In our state, authorities treat such matters with the utmost seriousness and severity. These crimes are prosecuted vigorously, and guilty parties face serious penalties.
A conviction on charges of domestic abuse may result in:
- Up to one year in jail
- A fine of up to $4,000
- Mandatory counseling
At Davis-Jones Law, we have helped many individuals and families make it through these difficult proceedings and put their lives back together. We are here to advise you of your rights and help you mount an appropriate defense. We will work hard to obtain the best possible result in your case.
In addition to criminal penalties — including jail time, probation and counseling — a domestic violence conviction can affect your life in other ways. There will be profound effects on your family, for example — there will likely be implications for any current or future child custody considerations.
Likewise, a conviction may prevent you from securing housing or employment. Even the most qualified job applicant can be turned away by an employer if he or she has a criminal record involving domestic violence. Many stand to lose their professional licenses. Moreover, individuals are disallowed from owning firearms and other weapons.
Attorney Kris Davis-Jones has spent her career defending people accused of domestic assault and other violent crimes. She will respond swiftly and effectively to protect your rights and work hard to clear your name.
