Aggressive Representation

If you are facing criminal charges you need an attorney that will represent your best interests and will fight for you.

How can I defend myself against domestic abuse charges?

All relationships have their ups and downs, and conflicts are inevitable. Strong disagreements can lead to regrettable emotional outbursts. And as long as things don't escalate to a physical altercation or excessive verbal abuse, there should be no need for police intervention.

But if things do get out of hand, there are domestic abuse laws aimed at protecting genuine victims from harm. Unfortunately, there are occasions where an individual will try to use these protections as an instrument of revenge.

Being the recipient of domestic violence charges is an extremely serious matter. If you have been arrested for charges that are untrue, you could have your life unfairly turned upside down. And the only way to contend with the situation is to build a solid legal defense.

When representing clients who believe they have been falsely accused of domestic violence, there are a variety of defenses that attorneys can use, each of which is contingent upon the circumstances of the case.

For example, if a physical altercation did occur prior to the arrest, the attorney may be able to demonstrate that any action you took was only to protect yourself or your children from what you perceived was an imminent threat. Claiming self-defense can be an effective legal response, so long as you did not initiate the fight and your response was in proportion to the threat you faced.

If you were on the receiving end of physical threats from a domestic partner, but you were the one who was charged with committing acts of abuse, you could likely use the aid of an experienced defense attorney. Domestic abuse charges, even false ones, can ruin your reputation and may even result in incarceration. An attorney can act on your behalf to protect your rights and see to it that you receive fair treatment under the law.
