Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength. ~St. Francis de Sales, Bishop of Geneva and Doctor of the Church, 16th century.

Houston Domestic Assault Defense Lawyers Jim Sullivan and Associates encourage their clients to be gentle with their significant others.  If you are gentle and kind, not only will your relationship last longer but you will experience a great deal more peace and love at home and throughout the rest of your life.

It does take real strength to be gentle.

If you get physical with your significant other, be careful because it does not take much to be arrested and charged with Assault Family Violence or Domestic Assault.  If you intentionally or knowingly cause your significant other bodily injury, you could be thrown in jail and charged with this serious class A misdemeanor charge.

Bodily injury is defined in the Texas Penal Code as “physical pain”.

Obviously, it does not take much to cause someone physical pain.  You do not have to beat him or her up to get charged.  If you slap your wife or girlfriend, she may call the cops on you.  If you shove her and she falls down and gets hurt as a result, you may get arrested.

If you are convicted of Assault Family Violence, then you cannot own a firearm under federal law.  If you are accused of Assault Family Violence a second time, you will be charged with a third degree felony.

If you need a Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer to defend you on a case of domestic assault or other criminal charge, you can call Attorney Jim Sullivan right now at 281-546-6428.  Attorney Jim Sullivan is also Board Certified in Juvenile Law.
