Domestic Violence Representation
Domestic violence (i.e. assault) charges are serious and can impact your family and future for years to come. By working with qualified legal counsel, you can ensure that you are heard clearly and objectively, giving you the best chance for a reduction of charges or having them dismissed altogether. Domestic violence charges can separate you from loved ones and create stress on your family as the circumstances surrounding them are often highly emotional. Once a charge is made, the state can pursue a conviction even if the alleged victim does not want to pursue the charges.

In a domestic violence case, you may find yourself served with a “no contact” order. This type of order prohibits the defendant from contacting or coming near the alleged victim. The most important thing to remember is that violating such an order can have serious consequences. Even if the protected person wishes to contact you or invites contact, violating the order is a crime that can lead to an arrest and more charges. Keep in mind that “no contact” orders also have the power to evict or remove the defendant from a shared residence, regardless of whose name is on the lease or deed.
