Houston Assault Attorneys

The Texas Penal Code has several laws penalizing people for various forms of misdemeanor and felony assault. Because of the wide variety of actions that are considered to fall under these laws, even a person who was making an empty threat might find themselves accused of an assault charge. In fact, almost any type of aggressive or unwanted physical contact may be considered a form of assault, and even the threat of violence may be enough for an individual to be charged with assault.
