Cases WE WILL NOT Take

Types of Cases We WILL NOT Take

We do not take divorce cases, capital murder cases, court-appointed cases, or any case where the alleged victim is a young child.

We represent people accused of assault.  We do not represent the alleged victim. We are focused on providing the best possible defense in cases involving accusations of domestic violence, so we no longer take DWI cases, White Collar Crime, Federal Cases, or any other case that is not somehow related to an allegation of domestic assault or dating violence. We do not accept court-appointed cases because we do not expect our clients to subsidize others.

What Types Of Cases Do You Accept?

We represent people charged with domestic assault  in Travis County, Williamson County, and Hays County, Texas. We also represent the accused in related matters, such as Applications for Protective Order for that are based on accusations of family or dating violence.

We typically take cases other than assault only when the defendant is already a client or law enforcement charges someone with multiple crimes based on a single incident that involves assault. For example, an additional charge of Interference With An Emergency Call or Criminal Mischief is frequently filed as a companion case along with a charge like Assault Causing Bodily Injury – Family Violence.  A closely related exception occurs when a person is facing a Motion to Revoke Probation on an old case because of a new accusation of family violence or dating violence.

What About Petitions for Expunction and Nondisclosure?

Petitions are technically civil matters but we do handle petitions for expunction and non-disclosure because our clients are the type of people that care about their criminal records and our goal in every assault case is to achieve an expunction-eligible result.
