Dallas Domestic Violence Attorneys
Allegations of domestic violence are serious. A 911 call to the police in relation to a domestic assault almost always results in an arrest; and the prosecutor's office will often pursue a conviction even if the alleged victim recants or doesn't desire to prosecute the case. At Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP, in Dallas, Texas, we are committed to aggressively defending the reputation of people charged with domestic violence.
Effective Criminal Defense Lawyers
While domestic violence should never be tolerated, neither should false allegations of domestic abuse. The resulting restraining orders or orders of protection based on false allegations can have significant impact on people's ability to visit their children, on obtaining new employment, as well as on the reputation of the accused.
Our attorneys regularly represent people facing domestic violence charges. We recognize that being arrested for domestic violence, being charged with a domestic assault, and being guilty of family violence are not the same. As former state prosecutors, our attorneys understand how prosecutors prepare domestic violence cases and determine whether or not to file charges. Our lawyers work closely with our clients to understand their situation and what led to the domestic violence allegations. Then we employ the experience of our office to defend our client's current and future legal interests.
Working with Family Law Attorneys

In addition, our formidable criminal defense experience is often a valuable complement to the skills involved when child protective services is involved in the case.
