Craig Flory convinced the District Attorney to not file a family violence assault case against his client who was charged with striking her boyfriend numerous times after he refused to return her car keys and cell phone so she could leave her residence.  Flory provided the DA’s family violence division intake department extensive evidence of the boyfriend’s past violent, abusive, and manipulative treatment of the client and argued that the client’s use of force was justified under Texas law via the penal code’s Protection of One’s Own Property defense.  Flory’s arguments were successful and the District Attorney agreed to decline her case and drop all charges.
