Dallas Assault and Battery Offenses Attorney

There is a wide range of criminal charges that fit under the heading of “assault and battery,” all of which are taken extremely seriously by law enforcement officers. While conviction of any of these charges can be severe in and of itself, penalties for conviction are often extremely serious, as assault and battery charges are frequently combined with other criminal charges, including domestic abuse, alcohol- or drug-related charges, and weapons-possession charges. Contact the Dallas criminal defense law firm the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter to discuss your assault or battery charge today.

Not only can a conviction result in significant court-ordered penalties, such as probation, fines, and jail time, but those convicted on assault and battery charges may also find their lives affected in other ways even after they have completed a court-ordered sentence. The stigma that often accompanies these charges can result in damage to one’s personal and professional reputation, and can significantly limit educational and professional opportunities in the future. At the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter, our Dallas assault and battery defense lawyers understand the full effects that a conviction for assault and/or battery can have on your life, and we are dedicated to protecting the rights of people like you in the face of such significant charges.

Types of Assault and Battery Cases

“He handled an unjust ticket for me and was very thorough and on time with notices, etc. His communication was short and to the point without false fluffy words or promises.”


When my son received a DWI, I wanted to get him THE BEST lawyer I could find. I researched for two days, and then I found Mark Lassiter. I looked no further. As soon as I read about him, I knew that I found THE BEST. From the moment I met him, I had COMPLETE confidence in him. At the end of my son's trial, Mr. Lassiter came through with a defense case so impressive that the case was dismissed before the prosecutors finished their argument. I will always be grateful to him.


Mark is a very intelligent professional defense Attorney on my DWI offense that Mark convinced the jury that i wasn't guilty i highy recommend Mark to my family and friends once again thanks Mark


I had my first DWI charge and I was unclear of next steps. I was getting propositioned left and right by less ethical lawyers and one even "claimed" my case and I missed my court date. However, Mark Lassiter and his amazing paralegal took care of everything. They were very prompt and clear with their communication on every step of the process. Also if anything came up I got a call right away and they let me know what I needed to do next. Honestly made this stressful situation manageable. I already recommend them to anyone who is going through the same situation as me. That said he does come at a premium cost but is worth every penny, and his team is willing to work with you on payment plans.


I recently was referred to contact Mark Lassiter by a colleague and called him for a consultation related to a recent arrest for public intoxication in Dallas. He was terrific; I had never been arrested before and was unsure of what the appropriate next steps would be. He was detailed in his step-by-step approach and provided me sound legal advice on how he would handle this case.I elected to hire him as my attorney and it was the best decision. He handled my case and was able to get the charges dismissed. As a professional it was imperative to be able to get this charge removed from my record.If you are in need of a criminal defense attorney, I would highly recommend Mark's services.


I am a very satisfied and a relived client. After meeting with various lawyers Mark was the one who won me over. Walking into his office you will be impressed of all his credentials. He is professional and aggressive which is what everyone looks for in a attorney. Every other lawyer I interviewed mentioned to "plea deal", I knew that meant settling. A DWI on my record was the LAST thing I wanted. I was very hopeless and scared (considering it was my first offense) but Mark always reassured me that I had a very good case. Ultimately, Mark did a phenomenal job in the court room (he had the prosecutors speechless), which resulted in a dismissal. I recommend this man to everyone I know. Thank you Mark, I owe you my life.
