Domestic violence cases are rarely clear-cut. Arguments can quickly escalate and can lead to allegations of domestic violence. If the police become involved in a family fight, it is common that someone may be put in jail. Even if the alleged victim later decides to change his or her mind, usually the police and prosecutor will not respond to their wishes. We will fight to defend you against disputed charges of domestic violence.
You must act quickly to deal with problems associated with domestic violence charges. The court will frequently issue restraining orders to prevent you from going home or having any contact with the alleged victim. We will ensure you understand this order and all its ramifications. In appropriate cases, we may be able to successfully challenge the restraining order in court.
