Helping Clients Face Domestic Violence Charges

An instance of domestic violence can often start with an argument. The argument gets heated and one person ends up calling the police. From there on out, once the police show up, the incident can take on a life of its own. Even if the person who made the call wants the charges dropped, the prosecutors often will not do so. The accused individual can find himself or herself caught up in legal issues that could hurt his or her job, relationship and future.

One spur of the moment argument could turn into a year of counseling, court, expenses and probation. The accused individual may not even be able to return home to live with their spouse or children. It is critical to speak with an experienced lawyer to help you fight these serious charges.
