We represent our clients before state courts, federal courts and administrative agencies, with experience in all of the following areas:

  • Assault
  • Domestic violence
  • DWI/DUI
  • Drug crimes

Our attorneys regularly represent clients who have been charged with assault in Texas. Whether you have been charged with abuse, aggravated assault or were arrested after a domestic dispute, our experienced lawyers can help you protect your rights. Assault offenses, due to their violent nature, are often classified as felonies under the Texas Penal Code. Significant penalties, including mandatory prison sentencing, may apply. Our attorneys can work with prosecutors to minimize the charges and the applicable sentencing.

Domestic violence or abuse is a serious charge, and may have a dramatic impact on your life, including negative child custody consequences. Depending on the nature of the alleged offense, you may be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. With our extensive family law experience, we routinely encounter family disputes that are accompanied by criminal domestic violence charges. We can help you understand your options and advocate on your behalf, utilizing our familiarity with judges and prosecutors to obtain a favorable result under the circumstances.

Our attorneys also have extensive experience assisting clients facing driving while intoxicated (DWI) charges, also known as driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. Along with the threat of costly fines and jail time, a DWI/DUI charge can result in a license suspension, which can impair your ability to maintain employment and support your family. We can also help you appeal a license suspension or obtain a temporary permit to allow you to continue commuting to work until the charges against you are resolved.

If you have been charged with possession, cultivation or sale of drugs, we can provide advice and help you fight the charges against you. If you decide that pleading not guilty is not your best option, we can negotiate a favorable plea agreement on your behalf. In Texas, penalties for drug crimes vary widely, depending on the charge and the surrounding circumstances. Simple possession, while often considered a misdemeanor, can still be classified as a serious felony under the Texas Health & Safety Code, punishable with years in prison and large fines.

Whether you are being investigated or have been charged with a crime, you face many critical decisions. If you have not yet been charged and the police request an interview, you should never agree without an experienced lawyer present. You should assert your constitutional right to remain silent and to receive the advice of counsel. If our experienced trial attorneys get involved early in the process, we can often have an influence on whether and what types of charges are filed.

Once a charge is filed, many legal tactics can be employed to put you in a better position at trial. Contact Sisemore Law Firm, P.C., at 817-900-3875 today for a free initial consultation.
