Domestic and Family Violence Defense —
Houston, Galveston, League City, Texas
A conviction on criminal charges related to domestic violence can have a long-term effect on your life, and the opportunities you have to live it fully, long after any court-imposed punishments have ended.
At Tad Nelson & Associates, we understand how small disagreements within a relationship can quickly snowball out of control. We also understand just how dramatically a conviction for domestic violence can change your life. Our goal is to keep you out of jail if at all possible, and to minimize the potential for serious damage to your life and standing in the community.
If you have recently been arrested and charged with a crime in connection with domestic violence, call our Galveston County law office at (281) 280-0100 or contact us online to meet with and talk to our lawyer.
The Family Violence Enhancement
Texas has what is known as a family violence enhancement for criminal charges involving domestic violence. What that means is that if you are convicted on a domestic violence-related charge such as aggravated assault, the sentence you receive will likely be more severe than for a charge stemming from a bar fight with a stranger. The family violence enhancement will also cost you your right to own or possess a firearm.
Restraining Order/Protective Order Violations
Protective orders are very restrictive and easy to violate. If you’ve been charged with violating a restraining order — the sooner you hire an attorney the better. As a former assistant district attorney for Galveston County, Tad Nelson will work to minimize the potential damage and be the strongest advocate he can possibly be on your behalf.
