Aggressively Fighting Assault Charges

Texas recognizes several different types of assault. Each type ranges in severity and carries its own potential penalties. The circumstances of the alleged incident will dictate the type of assault you face.

At The Law Office of Derek S. Ritchie, PLLC, we defend against all types of assault, including:

  • Simple assault: Simple assault can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the incident. Simple assault involves knowingly or intentionally injuring someone, threatening to injure someone, or causing physical contact that is provocative or offensive.
  • Domestic assault: This is any type of assault against a family or household member. Depending on the circumstances, domestic assault can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony.
  • Aggravated assault: Aggravated assault is assault that results in serious bodily injury to the victim or that involves the use of a deadly weapon. It is a second-degree felony.
  • Sexual assault: This type of assault is sexual in nature, including rape and molestation. It is a second-degree felony. Aggravated sexual assault is a first-degree felony.

Depending on the charges against you, you could be facing jail time, fines, probation, and other serious penalties if convicted. You need and deserve the advocacy of our San Antonio assault defense attorney.

How Can a San Antonio Assault Defense Lawyer Help You?

Facing assault charges can be a daunting and life-altering experience, but hiring an experienced San Antonio assault defense lawyer can make a significant difference in your case. They know how to navigate the complexities of assault laws and ensure your rights are protected throughout the legal process.

One of the primary ways an assault defense lawyer can assist you is by investigating the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident. They will scrutinize the evidence, interview witnesses, and assess the credibility of the prosecution's case. This meticulous approach allows them to identify any inconsistencies, false accusations, or procedural errors that could be used to build a strong defense strategy.

Assault defense lawyers are well-versed in the nuances of assault laws. They can analyze the specific elements of the charges against you and determine the most effective defense strategy tailored to your case. Whether it involves self-defense, lack of intent, or challenging the evidence presented, these professionals leverage their legal expertise to seek the best possible outcome for their clients.

An assault defense lawyer also plays a crucial role in negotiating with prosecutors to secure favorable plea deals or reduced charges. Their negotiation skills can lead to a more lenient sentence, minimizing the potential consequences of an assault conviction.
