Domestic Violence Attorney
Domestic violence charges are taken seriously in Texas, as evidenced by the severe penalties that are in place for anyone convicted of abusing his or her spouse, significant other or household member.
If you have been charged with a domestic violence crime, you may face temporary or permanent removal from your home, jail time, stiff fines and other collateral consequences.
At J.D. Milks, PLLC, we have successfully handled a number of domestic violence cases. We use our negotiation skills to bring many of our cases to an efficient and successful resolution without going to trial. However, we are trial-tested lawyers who have the experience and knowledge to take any case to trial if necessary.
It is critical to contact an experienced domestic violence lawyer as soon as possible to initiate your defense. With early intervention in your case, we are frequently able to have charges reduced or dismissed altogether. If it is necessary to go to trial, we are experienced litigators who know how to present a case in court.
Domestic Assault Defense Lawyer
If you face a domestic violence charge, it’s likely that a temporary protective order or a restraining order has been issued against you. This will prevent you from seeing your children or staying in your home. In some cases, we are able to get a temporary protective order removed. If the order is only meant to prevent you from seeing your spouse, we will work out arrangements so you can see your children while we defend you against the domestic violence charges.
Often, domestic violence accusations are the result of a spouse who overreacts emotionally or who is looking for an advantage in a pending divorce. Criminal courts frown on this sort of manipulation and act quickly and firmly to correct such matters. This has been an important component of successful domestic violence defense cases we have handled.
