Felony & Misdemeanor Assault

Arrested or Charged with Assault?

Family violence has serious repercussions…

At Gallian Firm, Assault arrests are one of the most common allegations that my client’s face.  In today’s climate, an allegation alone (even without supporting evidence or injuries) will lead to an arrest for Assault.  Police officers from departments all across Dallas-Fort Worth are “unofficially” instructed by their Sergeants and Chiefs that if they are called to a house about an assault altercation, that they are to arrest and/or remove someone from the scene.  Most of the time, it is going to be the male.  It doesn’t take much for the Officer to make an arrest but it takes the right criminal defense attorney to make sure that arrest gets erased from your record completely. 

An assault charge can range anywhere from a Class C Misdemeanor (punishable by fine only) up to a Felony where potential prison time is at stake.  Under the laws and codes of Texas, the offense of assault is committed when:

(a) A person commits an offense if the person:

(1) intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another, including the person’s spouse. 

Under the Family Code, the term “family” is extremely broad and includes any of the following: 

“Family” includes individuals related by consanguinity or affinity, as determined under Sections 573.022 and 573.024, Government Code, individuals who are former spouses of each other, individuals who are the parents of the same child, without regard to marriage, and a foster child and foster parent, without regard to whether those individuals reside together.
