Our Domestic Violence Defense Practice
We protect the rights of defendants in all types of proceedings resulting from a charge of domestic violence or abuse, from the criminal proceeding to determine penalties to the civil hearing regarding the issuance of a protective or restraining order. We understand how serious a domestic violence conviction can be. You can lose the right to contact for up to two years, and may forfeit your right to own or use a firearm. In addition, you may be restricted to supervised visitation with minor children, or lose your rights altogether.
We know from experience that domestic violence cases usually turn on the testimony of the parties involved. There are seldom witnesses to any alleged violence and the allegations can often have ulterior motives, including revenge or advantage in a divorce or custody proceeding. We will work closely with you to get the details of your side of the story, and to identify any issues that can help us bring the credibility of your accuser into question. Our goal will always be to prevent the issuance of a protective order, but if that is not feasible, we will seek to minimize the impact, getting the court to lessen the restrictions on you in exchange for anger management counseling.
