Assault And Other Violent Crimes

Defending You Against Violent Crime Charges

Criminal charges involving assault or another violent crime can be devastating to your life. If convicted, you could be facing incarceration, fines and other negative consequences. In addition, a conviction for a violent crime can be devastating to your reputation for the rest of your life, making it extremely difficult to secure work or even rent an apartment. Family violence can result in the loss of your right to own a firearm and other severe consequences. If you have been charged with a violent crime, do not take your choice of attorney lightly. Make sure you work with an attorney who has the experience and ability to get you the results you need.At the Law Office of Bob Galvan P.C., I have been defending clients against assault and other violent crimes for more than 30 years. I represent clients in central Texas, including San Antonio, Austin, Fredericksburg and Kerrville, and throughout the Hill Country counties to the west including Gillespie, Bandera, Kendall, Kerr and Real counties.

Assault Crimes

Assault can involve something as simple as grabbing someone’s wrist or making a threatening move to much more serious accusations involving aggravated assault or sexual assault. Assault charges can involve adults in the criminal courts as well as minors in the juvenile justice system.

I defend clients against all types of assault crime charges, which can include:

  • Aggravated assault: Charges of aggravated assault involve assault that results in serious bodily injury to the victim or the use of a deadly weapon in the commission of the assault.
  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon: Simply pointing a gun at someone or brandishing another weapon in a way that convinces the other person that you might cause harm can be considered assault with a deadly weapon.
  • Injury to a child, elderly or disabled person: When assault results in injury to a child, disabled or elderly person, the charges are increased and the penalties heightened.
  • Abandonment or endangerment of a child: These charges can be brought against parents or other caretakers who either abandon a child under their care or behave recklessly so as to endanger the child.
  • Deadly conduct: Even shooting a round from a gun into the ground, into the air or into the direction of a nearby town can be considered deadly conduct and bring with it serious criminal charges.
  • Murder and manslaughter
  • Family violence
  • Terrorist threats
  • Assisting suicide
  • Threatening someone with a deadly weapon

This is just a sampling of assault and other violent crime charges that could be brought against you in Texas. I have handled all types of these cases, and I can help you fight the charges you are facing.
