Domestic Abuse Is A Serious Charge
People have disagreements with the people they love. Sometimes, these arguments can escalate quickly. Perhaps one or both parties said or did things that they regret. In any event, if someone calls the police during or after a domestic argument, it is almost certain that one person will be arrested.

Understanding The Full Consequences Of A Domestic Violence Accusation
A domestic violence conviction can impact your life in many ways beyond jail time or fines. For instance, if you are involved in a divorce or a child custody dispute, a domestic violence conviction will negatively impact your ability to see your children. If you own firearms, a domestic violence conviction will impact whether or not you can keep your guns. If you are not a citizen of the United States, a domestic violence conviction can have a negative impact on your immigration status.
Our criminal law attorneys understand all of this. We understand that domestic violence charges are often the result of an argument that got out of hand. Some people may even make these allegations in an attempt to get an upper hand in a child custody battle. Whatever your situation, we will fully investigate the circumstances of your charges, and take every step within the law to defend you against these charges.
