Houston Assault Lawyer James Sullivan Fights for his Clients


Harris County Assault Defense

If you have been accused of assault causing bodily injury in Houston, it is important to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer who will actively listen to your side of the story and be willing and able to zealously defend you at a jury trial. Consulting with and retaining a reputable trial lawyer to defend you should be your first line of defense. A trial lawyer can analyze the strength of your case and has the experience to get you the best possible result. This is especially important because the penalty range under state law for an assault conviction is serious and can lead to a criminal record, a steep fine and a lengthy county jail sentence for a misdemeanor or prison term for a felony.

An individual can be falsely accused of assault for many different reasons. For example, if another person provoked or taunted you and you responded in self-defense because you reasonably believed that the other person was about to hit you, they may claim you assaulted them, when they were really the first aggressor. Or, if you get into a heated argument with another person that leads to a mutual fight, they may claim you assaulted them, when it was actually a mutual fight that they lost.

An individual can also be accused of assault for threatening to cause someone bodily injury or even for merely touching another person in an offensive manner.

In order to prevent future violence, law enforcement officers often make hasty arrest decisions in cases involving allegations of assault. This is especially true when family violence is alleged. However, as there are always two sides to every story, it is important to hire an experienced Houston criminal defense lawyer who can fight for you at trial and persuasively present your side of the story to the jury.
