El Paso Family Violence Defense Lawyer

When it comes to family violence and protection orders, the situation doesn't get much more serious. If two spouses have an argument and one alleges hitting, even if there is no evidence of such a claim, the accused party is almost assuredly going to end up in violence court. A first-time domestic abuse charge is the highest level of a misdemeanor and for a second offense it jumps up to a felony. It's worth noting that the district attorney aggressively prosecutes family violence cases and if you are found guilty of a charge of this nature you may have to:

  • Attend batterer's counseling classes for half a year
  • Pay substantial fines
  • Undertake community service
  • Serve a jail sentence

Things can get even more difficult if a protective order is issued, which mandates no ownership of fire arms, can result in serious limitation on future employment, put limitations on ability to see your children and may even put your current job in jeopardy. These issues have recently become significantly more serious because of the legislation passed in 2011 that makes protective orders significantly easier to set up.

If you are dealing with any of these issues, it is absolutely essential to partner with an experienced lawyer.
