Domestic Violence:

Unfortunately, domestic violence--assault crimes committed against family members--happens all to often. Today, prosecutors and lawmakers aggressively target people who have been charged with assault crimes against their spouses, significant others and other family members. These cases are extremely complicated and often affect multiple lives. Also, if convicted of domestic violence, there are consequences that affect other aspects of life such as the ability to work in certain areas of employment, the ability to own or possess firearms and/or the ability to hunt. With the right criminal defense attorney, a person accused of a domestic violence crime will get aggressive criminal defense in court, but will also get the proper legal counseling and advice that will help them through this difficult time. Often times, with the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer, negotiated plea agreements are worked out which prevent jail time and protect the client's job and family. If the case does not work out or if the client is wrongly accused, the firm can and will take the case to trial. If you have been contacted by law enforcement to discuss a domestic violence charge, or if you have been charged, do not make any statements to the police or others and call the firm immediately.
