Fighting Domestic Violence Charges

If you've been charged with domestic violence, there are two things you need to know. First of all, if it hasn't happened already, there will likely be a protective order taken out on you. It's going to derail your life, possibly for a long time if you don't take action now. Second, prosecutors rarely relent in these cases, even if the victim doesn't want to press charges. You're going to have to fight, and you're going to need help. That's what we're here for.

When Criminal Law And Family Law Collide

These are not your typical criminal law cases. For one thing, a domestic violence assault charge comes with different penalties than a simple assault charge. For another, there is the issue of the protective order or restraining order. Beyond that, there is the fact that many of these charges are either offshoots of an ongoing family law matter such as a child custody dispute, or they lead into a divorce. You can benefit from having a lawyer on your side who understands these charges from both a criminal law and family law angle.

False Accusations Of Domestic Abuse

Our knowledge of family law also means we understand the types of situations that often lead to accusations of domestic violence.
