Austin, Texas, Domestic Violence Defense Attorney

At the Law Offices of Jason Trumpler, we understand how serious the problem of family abuse can be for victims of domestic violence. Millions of women, children, and men are severely injured or killed every year after being attacked by family members or people with whom they once shared a relationship. While family violence is a crime that should not go unpunished, abuse charges are often, unfortunately, fraudulently made with no basis of facts, for emotional revenge, spite, or to gain the upper hand in a divorce or child custody proceeding.

It is important to note that in Texas, domestic violence and family violence are often used interchangeably.  The charge in Texas is actually Assault causing bodily injury with a family violence finding.  A family violence finding is dependent upon the relationship between the defendant and the complaining witness and in most cases, despite the best intentions of the prosecutor, cannot be waved. 

Many people who call us about their domestic or family violence arrest are confused by the charges against them. It is important to remember that domestic violence charges can be made against anybody with whom the victim/complaining witness once had a dating or intimate relationship with or with whom anybody is currently living. It does not have to be a current or former spouse. Ex-boyfriends and girlfriends often get charged with domestic violence offenses for stalking, making threats, and violating restraining orders. You can also be charged for family violence against platonic roommates, siblings, and parents.  If you have been charged with domestic violence, contact us and we will help you understand the charges against you.

A full range of offenses fall under the general category of domestic violence, such as:
