Husband has charges of aggravated Assault and I have talked to the district attorney over the phone and they have a verbal statement from me and my husbands lawyer who isn’t repesenting me just the husband wants me to write a statement saying we were both drunk and got in a argument. My verbal statement to the district attorney say he dumped beer on me and attacked me and started to choke me I stab and bit his hand and my dog got him off on me. I feel like I shouldn’t change what I said. Also we have two kids my son called the police
Good question. You should speak with/retain qualified TX criminal defense counsel.
Personal injury cases only; I'm good at it; you be the Judge! All information provided is for informational and educational purposes only.

You made the key point. The attorney represents your husband and not you. If there are also charges against you, then you should speak with a criminal defense attorney. No attorney should be attempting to get you to make a false statement. If you have made a truthful statement to the district attorney already, stick to the truth. I might also suggest you seek counsel with a family law attorney but that is beyond what you asked. Take measures to keep you and your children safe.
