Defending Against Assault Charges In Abilene

Assault charges often boil down to one person's word against another's. If the police suspect an assault occurred, they are often quick to take the side of the alleged victim and may make a hasty arrest. If you have been accused of assault or domestic abuse, it is important to get skilled legal counsel on your side as soon as possible.

I am David N. DeFoore, a criminal defense attorney in Abilene. I understand what is at stake in cases involving violent crimes, which is why I will aggressively protect your rights while helping you build the strongest possible defense against criminal charges.

Assault Charges Do Not Require Physical Violence

People often equate assault with a physical altercation. However, it is possible to be charged with assault even if a fight never progresses beyond an exchange of words. If an alleged victim feels that he or she was in danger of being physically harmed, the alleged perpetrator may still be charged with a crime.

I will thoroughly investigate the details of your case to help create a realistic plan for your criminal defense. I understand how to challenge the evidence and will do everything I can to help you get your charges dismissed or reduced.

Protecting Your Rights In Family And Domestic Violence Cases

It is possible to be charged with a crime of domestic violence even if the other party does not wish to press charges. The consequences of a domestic assault charge can be immediate. They may mean that you will be prohibited from returning to your home and will be barred from any contact with the alleged victim.

If you have been accused of a crime involving family violence, I will pursue all available options to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.
