Violent Crimes in Texas

Some violent crimes result in misdemeanor charges, such as assault and battery, verbal threats, domestic assault, or arson, causing up to $1,500 in damage. Other violent crimes are considered more serious and could result in felony charges. Our violent crime lawyer in Navarro, Ellis and Dallas counties represents clients charged with misdemeanors and felonies.

Regardless of the type of charges, a conviction will result in a permanent criminal record that will complicate your life in ways you can’t predict. A felony conviction will result in longer jail or prison sentences, higher fines, and other legal penalties. Additionally, a felony record will make it difficult to secure housing, find gainful employment, work in certain professions requiring licensure, and pursue higher education.
