Domestic Violence Diversion Program (DVDP)

Highly recommend! Colin thank you so much for your dedication. Thank you for actually wanting to sincerely help and give us the best outcome we can get. You are by far one of the best. You helped my bf reschedule a court date after it was missed and was able to give him the same plea deal. Thank you again Colin.

Absolutely wonderful! Collin was fantastic. He really fought for me and I am very happy with the outcome of my case. He really fought for my case to have a positive outcome and was supportive, easy to get ahold of when needed and walked me through everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone!!

I would highly recommend Hoeller McLaughlin. They helped my husband on a probation violation case and did an excellent job. Dustin Trammel was our attorney and he communicated with us and was supportive and helpful throughout the process. Very good legal service and would recommend this firm.

Colin by far has been one of the BEST attorneys in Ft. Worth. His dedication and attentiveness really shows not only in court but with the client and family. Great communication, easy web portal and friendly staff. 5 stars are NOT enough. Thank you Colin

I can not say enough about how grateful I am that Dustin Trammel was my attorney! Having no experience with court proceedings, Dustin explained everything and stayed in touch with me the entire time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! Very highly recommend!!

The Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office offers a variety of Diversion Programs, including the Domestic Violence Diversion Program, which is a pre-trial diversion program designed to help first-time offenders remove a new assault family violence (intimate partner violence) charge from their record.
Our goal is to help our clients get accepted into the Domestic Violence Diversion Program (which allows for the case to be dismissed and become eligible for an expunction). Call today to see if your Assault Family Violence charge qualifies for the Domestic Violence Diversion Program.

Deferred Prosecution Program (DPP) | Tarrant County Diversion Program

The Domestic Violence Diversion Program, which targets domestic violence, or violence between intimate partners is funded by a grant from the Criminal Justice Division of the Governor’s office.  Select clients charged with Domestic Violence in Tarrant County Criminal Court No. 5 are placed into the Pre-Trial Diversion Court which monitors the client’s progress in a non-adversarial manner, and is in lieu of traditional case processing (i.e. pleading guilty and getting on deferred probation, which can have many collateral consequences). Clients are selected for program participation after undergoing a comprehensive screening and assessment process and meeting the following eligibility criteria:

  • Partner-on-partner violence,
  • No current or prior violations of protective orders,
  • No stalking activity,
  • No open warrants,
  • No other pending charges,
  • No prior history of diversion,
  • Commitment to completing a prescribed program, and
  • Consent of victim for offender participation.

This court is unique because it combines the judicial function with case management, victim assistance and an assessment process. The project includes services specifically dedicated to preventing, identifying and responding to violent crimes against partners as they relate to domestic violence.

Call today at 817-334-7900 and let us help you get started with getting your first criminal offense dismissed and expunged from your record.
