When a situation becomes heated, it can be difficult to keep emotions in check. A split-second decision can end with you being led away in handcuffs, facing serious charges of assault and battery. A conviction can have severe, long-lasting consequences. At times like this, the assistance of an experienced criminal defense lawyer is invaluable.

At the Dallas law offices of D. Mark Elliston, Attorney at Law, we have more than 40 years of criminal law experience. Our attorney is a former prosecutor who understands how the other side tries cases. To schedule an initial consultation, call 469-914-8957.

We Defend Against All Violent Crime Charges

We represent people who are facing misdemeanor or felony assault charges stemming from:

  • A bar fight
  • A domestic dispute
  • Workplace confrontations
  • Allegations involving an assault on a police officer

Assault charges carry serious potential consequences. A first-degree assault conviction can mean a prison sentence of 20 years of more. Aggravated assault or assaults involving a weapon can substantially increase the potential penalties.

A conviction may not only result in the loss of your freedom, but also result in far-reaching consequences that can impact your life long after your sentence has expired, including a prohibition on the ownership of firearms. When everything is on the line, you need legal counsel who understands how to build a solid defense that is designed to protect your rights.
