Representing Clients Accused of Family and Non-Family Violence
If you have been accused of assault, battery or any other violent crime, you could be facing serious consequences, including a prison sentence, fines and restrictions on your right to possess firearms. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.
I am Sylvia A. Cavazos, a San Antonio assault defense lawyer serving clients throughout south-central Texas. Whether you have been charged with committing domestic violence or assaulting someone outside of your household, I can defend you and protect your rights.
Understanding and Effectively Defending Against Assault Charges
Getting into a conflict is not a crime, but causing or threatening physical injury crosses the line into assault, which is a crime. In addition, if you are accused of assaulting someone in a domestic incident, you may be facing a protective order and a finding of family violence.
If you have been accused of any type of assault, I can protect your rights and make sure your side of the story is told, in criminal court and in domestic violence court if necessary.
It is important to understand that the decision to prosecute you is made by the government, not the person you are accused of attacking. Trying to convince the other party not to "press" the charges is likely to do more harm than good, especially in a domestic abuse case.
