Houston Criminal Lawyer
experienced, aggressive representation
In the Texas judicial system, you can be charged with assault if you cause, or threaten to cause, bodily injury to another person. This can stem from an intentional act or by conducting yourself in a reckless manner. Also, a criminal charge will result if you intentionally make physical contact with another person and you know that the other person will perceive the contact as offensive or unwanted.

Assault charges often go hand-in-hand with protective orders or domestic violence incidents. If you have been charged with assault or a related crime, you are likely facing other charges and legal actions. At the Houston Law Office of Shahin Zamir, we can help you try to get your charges reduced or possibly even dismissed. Our seasoned attorneys are prepared to protect your rights against any of the following types of assault related charges.
Most of the above listed offenses will result in severe penalties that can have negative effects that can last a lifetime. With some extreme incidents, you could possibly be barred from having contact with your children or other family members. Depending on how severe the offense was, your second amendment right to own or possess a firearm could be affected as well.
Assault charges can be either a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the degree of the crime. Assault on an elderly person or a public servant will also result in a more serious penalty. Certain Houston assault charges will result in a 20 year prison sentence. Sentencing guidelines often hinge on the extent of harm that is caused to the victim. For example, an assault with a deadly weapon is treated as a felony while simply threatening another person is most often a misdemeanor.
