Domestic Violence Charges in Texas

Quality Defense from a Brazoria County Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you’ve been accused of domestic violence, you’re more than likely confused, stressed, and overwhelmed by the whirlwind that has just hit you. Domestic violence, or violent conduct against a family member, spouse, roommate, or close friend, is unfortunately an all-too-real problem. However, unlike many other offenses, domestic violence is unique in that many people are wrongfully accused of this crime. Whether it’s a vengeful spouse looking to gain the upper hand in child custody proceedings or an opportunistic significant other looking to ruin the life of the person who just broke off the relationship, there are many different ways in which these accusations can be falsely levied. This only further necessitates the need for a qualified Brazoria County criminal defense attorney who can fight to clear your name and reputation.

Difficulties of Domestic Violence Cases

What makes domestic violence charges so difficult to overcome? There are a number of different factors. On one hand, while the law is supposed to be impartial, humans rarely are and sometimes it can be difficult to get past jury bias that usually leans in favor of the victim and prosecution. These cases are often seen as “guilty until proven innocent,” rather than the other way around.

This only becomes more difficult when the facts and evidence in cases may come down to contrasting testimonies which tell a completely different story. Evidence to support each side’s claims may be hard to come by, and it takes an extremely skilled attorney to analyze the facts of each case and come up with a cohesive strategy for effective defense. This is particularly true in instances where there are no documented injuries, no witness testimony, and no other forms of evidence beyond the word of the alleged victim.

Penalties for Domestic Violence

Those who are convicted of domestic violence face serious consequences both from the law and in their normal daily life once their sentence has been completed. Because these cases are often so heavily scrutinized, it’s not uncommon for those who are accused to be ostracized or looked down upon, even facing difficulty finding employment or a place to live. Some even find they have to relocate in order to get a fresh start.

Penalties for domestic violence can include:

  • Incarceration in state jail or prison
  • Heavy fines
  • Immense social stigma
  • Loss of rights to firearm ownership, licenses, and more

    "I highly recommend Steve and this team"
    In George Orwell Book (Animal Farm) George Orwell said, " All animal are created equal, but some are more equal than others"
    Ultimately, the quote serves as a cautionary reminder of the potential pitfalls that emerge when individual or collective interests overshadow the principles of fairness and justice.
    1) As my attorney I was updated with phone calls and followed by mail.
    2) He did what only the best attorney do, defending the client's interest and reputation and not plea bargaining for lesser sentence.
    3) Will stand up for client's rights, Justice and fairness.
    All attorneys including State Public Defenders are created equal they and they all have the same functions to perform in the civil society. In my experience with Steve and his team are more equal than others in fighting for rights, fairness and justice which is why we go to court.
    After going through the system once I pray, I never be in that situation again, I am glad I found an attorney that suited my needs. If I were to be in the situation again, I would rather walk into that court with this attorney with confidence knowing that nothing can possibly go wrong. For anyone that may need the service of an attorney, I highly recommend Steve and this team if you want to come out innocent OR you might as well settle for a public Defender and give the prosecutor your jail house uniform size before you get to the courthouse. The difference will be clear after the verdict, you make the choice.

    I was charged with 2 felony cases (DWI & Evading) and my life had just turned upside down. I was looking to hire the best attorney in Brazoria County and everyone I talked to said Steve Gonzalez was the best. Through his hard work and persistence, he was able to prove my innocence. I wouldn't want my life in anyone else's hand except his.

    "Experienced and Respected"
    I am extremely grateful that Mr. Gonzalez represented me in my case. From the very beginning, he was very communicative and made me feel at ease. His legal assistants were also very kind and helpful throughout the process. He is a highly respected attorney whose reputation and expertise are phenomenal.

    "Could not have been better"
    Was arrested twice in a very short period for invalid license. I was unaware how seriously Brazoria County takes the charge. I was looking at a class A misdemeanor for the second offense and the state had not filed the first. I thought the best possible outcome could be time served and awaiting first offense but Mr Gonzalez got the second offense dropped to a Class C misdemeanor with $100 fine and no filing of the first case I had not even considered that possible in the outcome could not have been better.
    - Joe
    "Best Lawyer hands down! Your in good hands if you hire them"
    I was facing a very scary and very serious felony charge and I was innocent! Steve Gonzalez and Kristi fought and got no bill. When they tell you you’re in good hands, you if you don’t take their word for it please take mine! They got me my life back and I could never ever thank them enough for this. The best hands down.
    - Kevin
    "Best Lawyer hands down"
    Steve and his law firm are by far the best firm around. They were always in court on time and kept me informed throughout my 3-year process with Steve and his partner Kristina. He ended up getting my case dismissed after that long period. I would like to thank both of them for there and patience with my case it was money well spent and would definitely refer him to everybody.
    - Former Client
    "Great Attorney"
    Kristi is fantastic. I recommend her to anyone that needs a DWI attorney. She is knowledgeable and informative. If you want to win the case hire Kristi.
    - Former Client
    "One of the Greatest"
    Steve O. Gonzales took the time and effort to navigate through and precisely take care of what needed to be done. He doesn't hold back and goes all out. Most definitely worth the money. He is a good man with good values. Doesn't take any B.S. from the court or the client. Honesty gets Excellent Results.
