Assault Defense
Your Corpus Christi Assault Defense Attorney

Assault is an act or threat of violence committed against another person.  The range of punishment for assault is very wide from a Class C Misdemeanor for Threatening Bodily Injury to a 1st Degree Felony for Aggravated Assault.  As a violent crime, the State is likely to prosecute such offenses to the fullest extent of the law.  It is even possible for the State to prosecute such cases against the wishes of the alleged victims. 


All assault charges should be taken seriously.  In addition to the punishments that can be handed down by the Court, convictions can be interpreted as evidence of a violent nature and can affect other areas of your life such as employment and housing.  It is extremely important to seek informed legal advice from an attorney who has your best interest at heart. 


If you decide to take your case to trial, it is important that you be represented by a trial attorney.  Rick Dodson is an aggressive attorney who leaves nothing to chance in preparing for trial.  He will work with you to insure every angle of your case has been thoroughly examined and explored.  Many times, Mr. Dodson will go to the location where the alleged offense occurred and walk through the sequence of events.  He will prepare for every aspect of trial, from picking a jury to proper attire and behavior before the jury.
