Do Not Take On Aggravated Assault Charges Without Experienced Guidance
Any allegation that you have committed a violent crime is serious, but the potential penalties and life-altering effects of a charge increase dramatically when prosecutors accuse an individual of aggravated assault. The sooner you contact a determined criminal defense lawyer, the sooner they can begin to build your defense and provide sound legal guidance that could make all the difference for your future.
A Thorough Review Of Complex Facts To Prepare A Solid Defense
At Terri Daniel, Attorney at Law, PLLC, in McKinney, I leave no stone unturned in analyzing the charges to provide the best defense to criminal charges. I do not take the prosecutor’s case at face value. I intently listen to my clients to understand the nuances of each case.
As a former prosecutor with substantial experience as a defense lawyer, I personally review every detail. Whether you are falsely charged, are overcharged or believe the evidence against you is strong, I am determined to build a strong defense for you.
I have extensive experience effectively defending against a wide range of violent offenses, including:
- Aggravated assault
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Assault committed against a public official
- Aggravated domestic assault
- Intoxication assault and intoxication manslaughter
In Texas, aggregating factors that can enhance a simple assault to an aggravated crime involve the alleged use of a deadly weapon or intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causing serious bodily injury to another. Brandishing a gun during an alleged assault will often convince prosecutors to file aggravated charges. However, many of these cases involve more subtle and subjective claims that an aggravating factor exists.
The law gives prosecutors wide discretion in determining what may constitute a deadly weapon. Similarly, what rises to the level of serious injury is often in dispute. Moreover, your defense lawyer needs to analyze the facts and circumstances surrounding the event aggressively in any assault case. These events are often highly fluid. Witness testimony may not provide accurate facts. Law enforcement may jump to conclusions concerning the sequence of events, missing evidence of self-defense.
