What is Considered Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is the direct act of violence against a family member, partner, person you are in a romantic relationship with or cohabitant. All it takes is one accusation of domestic violence, and officers can be quick to place a person under arrest for domestic violence. If you are charged with domestic violence, the court will place a restraining order on you, making it illegal for you to possess a firearm.

Additionally, if you are convicted of domestic violence, your gun rights may be permanently taken away. You urgently need a criminal defense lawyer in Fort Bend County who will fight for your rights.

    I didn't know what to expect when I went to Mr. Stornello about early termination of probation. But thanks to him, I got it done. He is very knowledgeable of the law and very honest. Also, he made the process so easy and was so informative about the steps I need to be doing to get the ball rolling. Very reasonable price and pretty much does what he says he trying to do for YOU.
