When Criminal Allegations Threaten Family Bonds

A domestic assault allegation carries significant potential criminal consequences, but that is only the beginning of the trouble it can cause in your life. If you are married and/or have children, being charged with domestic assault can put your most precious family relationships at risk.
At The Law Office of Mito Gonzalez, I handle both criminal law and family law matters for clients in McKinney, Texas, and throughout surrounding areas. My strong focus on both of these legal areas gives me a valuable perspective when representing clients facing criminal charges and overlapping divorce or child custody issues.
 

Why It’s Important To Fight

If convicted of domestic assault in Texas, you could face the following consequences:
  • If someone obtains a protective order against you, you may be barred from seeing your children or even from entering your own home.
  • Evidence of domestic violence can significantly affect child custody and visitation arrangements.
  • A domestic assault conviction can hamper your ability to find work and own a firearm, compromising your status as a breadwinner and protector.
Criminal penalties are also harsh, ranging from one year to several years of incarceration and fines rising as high as $10,000.
The best way to avoid these consequences is to aggressively fight the allegation from the very outset. The sooner you consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney, the better your chances of maintaining your freedom, lifestyle and personal relationships.
 

Protecting What Matters Most

While prosecutors may paint my clients as hardened criminals, I see them for who they are: Fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, who face massive legal barriers to maintaining ties to their homes and families. If you have been accused of domestic violence or any crime that puts your parental rights at risk, I am here to stand up for you.
