When Domestic Conflicts Turn Into Criminal Charges

It's a fact of life: Arguments happen in close relationships. Sometimes, emotionally charged situations escalate and, one way or another, the police end up getting called. Soon you find yourself in handcuffs facing criminal charges.

Accusations of domestic violence are more than just an embarrassment. Domestic assault charges can lead to potential jail time, a criminal record and a damaged reputation. If serious injuries were involved, or if you have a prior conviction, you could be facing a felony charge that carries even harsher penalties — even if the prior offense is years or decades old.

Whether you're facing a felony or misdemeanor, we can help. At The Love DuCote Law Firm, you will find aggressive legal representation.

Our team of experienced defense attorneys includes a former Texas prosecutor.

Both of our lawyers have a wealth of trial and courtroom experience.

Making Your Voice Heard

We recognize that these cases are rarely black or white. Often, there's a good deal more to the story than what the prosecutor would have the judge or jury believe. Our lawyers know how to effectively weed out misstatements and misrepresentations to set the record straight.

We also understand the need for discretion in these sensitive cases. Depending on your situation, we may be able to resolve charges in a way that avoids a permanent conviction on your record — for example, through dismissal, expunction or nondisclosure proceedings.
