Corpus Christi Assault & Battery Defense Attorney

The Gould Law Firm provides aggressive defense for clients in Corpus Christi

Assault & battery is one of the most frequently committed violent crimes in the state of Texas. In order to commit assault & battery, a person must use violence against another person or threaten to cause another person bodily harm. Additionally, people commit assault & battery if they use a weapon such as a firearm or knife on another person or threaten to use a weapon to cause a person bodily harm.

Assault & battery is a violent crime, which means that when a person is convicted, judges will not be lenient. This is because law enforcement agencies throughout Texas have ongoing efforts to combat cases of violent crime and are engaged in an ongoing battle to reduce the state's violent crime rate.

Convicted assault & battery offenders must understand that they stand a great chance of having to serve time in prison. Aside from imprisonment, convicted offenders may also be sentenced with monetary fines, probation, community service, and mandatory rehabilitation courses, such as anger management.

The legal penalties associated with assault & battery can have a negative, long-term impact on a person's quality of life. Even in cases where people avoid serving jail time, they will have an assault & battery conviction on their criminal records. This means that anytime an assault & battery offender applies for a job or for housing, people will see that he/she has a history of violent behavior and will continually deny the person opportunities.

Due to the adverse consequences, people who have been charged with assault & battery should always have a determined mindset and should plan to combat their charges by hiring a professional criminal defense attorney, like the attorney at The Gould Law Firm.

    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”



    “My name is Cynthia, and my family recently hired the Gould Law firm to assist us on serious allegation. Mr. Gould & his assistant, Ozzie Ahumada, have been extremely helpful. Ozzie gave us his personal cell phone and he has been there every step of the way helping get my family member out of jail. I would highly recommend the Mr. Gould and his staff for all your legal needs!!!”

    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”
