Strong Defense Against Assault Allegations
Assault and battery are some of the most commonly filed criminal charges in Texas.

Our founder, attorney Michelle Lugo, brings more than 20 years of experience to clients facing an array of assault charges.
Assault In Texas
In Texas, a person can be charged with assault if they:
- Intentionally, knowingly or recklessly cause another person physical injury
- Intentionally or knowingly threaten physical injury to another person
- Intentionally or knowingly make physical contact with another person in order to offend or provoke
“Aggravated assault” is a more serious charge. In Texas, aggravated assault occurs when the assault causes serious bodily injury, or uses or displays a deadly weapon during the assault.
Whatever the details of your assault allegations, it is important that you take them seriously. A conviction can carry serious consequences. At The Lugo Law Firm, PLLC, we help people stand up to criminal allegations and protect their futures.
Compassionate Guidance Through Charges Of Domestic And Family Violence
Domestic assault occurs when the alleged offender and the victim live in the same family or household.
