Defending Against Domestic Violence Charges

We have handled all types of domestic violence cases, including:

  • Misdemeanor domestic assault and battery of a family memember

Fighting for Your Rights

Our domestic assault and battery defense lawyers will examine your case and defend you in every way possible. It is important that any accusations be thoroughly investigated. This may mean that your attorney must zealously question and attack the credibility of the alleged victim. We may be able to assert self-defense, in cases where you only resorted to physical force because of the alleged victim's threatening actions.

Unfortunately, if police arrive on the scene of an alleged domestic assault, they will not leave without someone being arrested. Even if both individuals are at fault, only one of them will get taken to jail. Through questioning and examining the situation, the police will determine who they believe is the "primary aggressor" and arrest that person. The police officers do not get the final say, however.  Their decision is only the first step in the process, not the last.  A good domestic violence defense lawyer can still convince the judge that you are innocent.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your arrest, we are diligent in our investigation and construction of your case. Our attorneys will aggressively fight for your rights and work to see that serious domestic violence charges have a minimal impact on your life whenever possible.
