Because of the increase in domestic violence awareness programs, the very fact that you have been charged with a domestic violence related crime can mean that you have already been stigmatized (or, even had a restraining order brought against you). However, “domestic violence” is one of those amorphous terms that can apply to a broad variety of crimes. Regardless of the nature of the actual charge against you, you will want to have an experienced domestic violence lawyer defending you so that you do not suffer the deleterious effects that a conviction on such charges can bring.
When you have been accused of being an offender in a domestic violence, you need a domestic violence defense attorney to defend your case.
An experienced domestic violence attorney can mean the difference between a felony charge and misdemeanor assault. The consequences of an arrest on domestic abuse charges are immediate, and will affect every aspect of your life. Don’t allow your side of the story to go unheard. Call our offices today!

As a domestic violence attorney practice, we have seen first-hand how emotionally charged accusations and egos can hide the truth of any situation. Heated arguments and harsh words can be misinterpreted as threats. Memories can be manipulated by accusing parties to paint a more disturbing and incriminating picture of the events than actually occurred. Feeling badly about what has happened does not obligate you to plead guilty or simply accept an unjust punishment.
Let an experienced and aggressive domestic violence attorney handle your case. Call now. THERE ARE DEFENSES: It is up to the prosecuting attorney to prove that you are guilty of the crimes that the state is bringing against you. And, without solid proof, a conviction is unlikely. Some of the defenses available to clients facing domestic charges are:
- Self Defense: This argument can be presented when you took the appropriate measures to prevent the accusing party from inflicting physical harm upon you.
- Defense of a Third Party: This argument can be used when the accuser’s injuries can be attributed to action you took to block or prevent the accuser from inflicting physical harm upon another individual.
- Lack of Intent: This argument can be used when the accuser’s injuries can be attributed to actions that were not intended to inflict harm.
- Lack of a Crime: This argument can be put forward when the accuser’s injuries can be shown to have been self-inflicted or proven to have never occurred.
