How a Harris County Family Violence Attorney in Houston Can Help.

You may have been picked up by the police and taken to the station for questioning, without having a true understanding as to what you are being charged with. Officers will often speak quickly in order to confuse and get you to speak openly about anything and everything. This information can then be used against you later on.

The best thing for you to do is involved, a family violence attorney in Harris County from the very beginning. An attorney will be able to tell you what questions you should and should not answer and stop the questioning if it’s taken too far.

If you are actually charged and booked, you are likely going to end up in jail until the bail hearing. Your attorney can be at the bail hearing to persuade a judge to post a small bail amount so that you will be able to get out of jail until your trial.

As long as someone post bail on your behalf, you are then a free person until your trial. You will need to make sure that you attend the trial – and this is another area where your Harris County family violence attorney in Houston is going to be assisting. The two of you are going to be talking many times between the time you get out of jail to the time of your trial – and this could be several months, and even a year.

A case will need to be built to show that you are either completely innocent of the family violence charges or that the charges need to be reduced based upon what actually took place. In order for this to happen, you will need to disclose any and all information that you have about the events that led to such charges. If you are uncomfortable speaking to your attorney, then you have the wrong attorney.

An attorney should make you feel comfortable, show compassion toward your cause, and be available whenever you have questions. A consultation can be scheduled before you actually choose to retain an attorney so that you can ask a few questions and get to know the attorney a little bit first.

You may be able to go through the bail hearing, and even the arraignment without an attorney, but a trial is something slightly different. You cannot represent yourself because there are many laws regarding family violence and it can be very difficult to navigate through them. By having an experienced Harris County family violence attorney at your side, you can hope for a better outcome.
