Aggravated assault is a major crime that comes with grave consequences. An individual can be charged with aggravated assault if he or she attacks another individual and causes serious bodily harm or uses an object classified as a deadly weapon. The Texas Legislature defines the term "deadly weapon" very broadly. Nevertheless, we have a very lengthy and impressive record of getting these types of cases dismissed.

Our defense team does our own independent investigation to determine:
- Was the accused acting in self-defense?
- Was the accused protecting an innocent third party?
- Was the crime committed accidentally?
- Can the identity of the accused be proven?
- Was it mutual combat — a fight agreed to by both the accused and the other person?
Result: Grand Jury returned a "No-Bill" and FELONY ASSAULT CHARGES DISMISSED . Charges: Several Felony Charges by a Habitual Offender. Our client came out of a bar drunk out of his mind and was accused of beating up several cops. It was a plausible allegation since he was about 6'2" and 240 pounds of muscle. At 21, he already had a trip to prison and was looking down the barrel of a 25-year minimum sentence without parole if he was convicted of these charges. Mr. Pelley put an end to the investigation and all of the cases were dismissed. State of Texas vs. C.S.
