Assault on a Family Member: A Potentially Life-Altering Charge

Assault on a family member is one of the most serious crimes you can be charged with in the state of Texas. If you’re convicted, that conviction will stay on your record forever. If you take a probation or deferred adjudication, you can never expunge or seal your record. If you need a state license to work, a conviction can put that license in jeopardy. If you own a gun, a conviction will prevent you from owning any firearms for the rest of your life. And if your assault on a family member charge eventually causes your spouse to file for divorce, a conviction could have devastating consequences in your divorce proceedings.

It’s Not “Just” A Misdemeanor

Few convictions cause worse damage to a person’s reputation than assault on a family member. Friends, family, and neighbors can understand and forgive a DWI, shoplifting, or drug charge, but a family violence conviction could cause them to brand you as a “batterer” or “abuser” for the rest of your life.

Even though most assault on a family member cases are charged as misdemeanors, they are not “just” misdemeanors. Because the legal and personal consequences are so severe, you need to treat being charged with assault on a family member as seriously as you would treat being charged with a felony.

Stephen Aslett – Experienced Family Assault Defense

Unlike many defense attorneys, who don’t focus their practice on one particular type of case, I focus my practice on defending people charged with family assault cases. As a former prosecutor with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, I handled hundreds of assault on a family member cases. I supervised junior prosecutors in the Family Criminal Law Division and trained them on how to try these cases. I know how prosecutors evaluate these cases and use my experience to try to get your case dismissed.

Don’t just take my word for it. Visit the case results section of my website to see some of the great results I’ve been able to get for my clients in family assault cases.
