One of the most serious charges a person can face involves an allegation of domestic violence. These charges are especially serious because a conviction could impact how much a person gets to their children and other family members, as well as tarnish their reputation in the community. An experienced defense attorney can fight these serious charges and prevent damage to family relationships as well as damage to your reputation. An experienced attorney can be an invaluable ally in this difficult fight.
In some cases, a defendant is falsely accused of domestic violence. This often occurs in the middle of a contentious divorce or child custody matter. One party will try to get the advantage by making a false accusation, hoping the accused will simply plead guilty and lose access to a child or lose possessions in a divorce. If this has happened to you, it is important to aggressively challenge the accuser, casting doubt on their story and potentially getting the charges dropped.
In other cases, it may be an issue of self-defense where one party was simply defending against an attack from the other. If it can be shown that the accused was actually defending himself or herself against an attack, it may be possible to get these serious charges dropped.
