Assault Serving Families Throughout Austin

Assault Attorney in Austin, TX

Facing an Assault Conviction?

The intentional harm inflicted on another person can be qualified as assault, aggravated assault, and even battery. If a crime has an element of a physical attack, then there is usually an assault or battery charge associated with it. Even if the attack was two-sided, as in cases of fighting, both parties can still get charged with assault no matter who started it. The law also states that even the intent of harming someone is the same thing as assaulting them and that even if the victim isn’t actually harmed, police officers can still arrest the defendant.

Punishments for Assault Charges

An assault conviction can change your life. Simple assault is defined as a Class A misdemeanor in Texas and is punishable by up to one year in a county jail and up to a $4,000 fine.

However, if aspects of your case match up with the following, then your charge can be automatically bumped up to a more severe, third-degree felony charge:

  • You have a previous domestic violence conviction and commit assault against a family member or romantic interest
  • You assault someone you know is a public servant or government contractor
  • You assault an emergency worker or security worker while they are doing their job

Typically in Texas, third-degree felonies will cost you between 2-20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. If a weapon is used during the assault or if a serious injury occurs, you can be charged with aggravated assault which is a second-degree felony in Texas and can be punished by up to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.

    Trusting someone with your life is an incredibly difficult choice and one we never want to have to make but Shelly and her team have helped me through some of these stressful situations. I used several different lawyers before finding her and was less than impressed with all of them. When I contracted her to help me with my second DWI, I found out quickly how a highly competent lawyer handles the courtroom. I have since worked with her on several cases and I have recommended her to many of my friends and family. All of us have been fortunate that she was on our side and I highly recommend her for any legal services.
