Domestic Battery

An arrest on a domestic battery charge or for violating an order of protection has a dramatic effect on your life. You may be kicked out of your home. If you have children, you may lose your custody or visitation rights. You could end up with a criminal conviction on your record and be prevented from getting certain types of jobs. In this situation, you cannot afford anything less than a strong, tenacious and effective defense effort.

Defending Your Rights and Freedom

Just because you were arrested, conviction is not a foregone conclusion. With a strong advocate on your side, it may be possible to overcome the charge or at least mitigate the consequences. I will examine every factor in your case, including the motivation of the accuser, the context in which the event took place and other factors. My firm will do everything it can to obtain a dismissal of the charge and a positive outcome for you.

Mitigating the Consequences

In cases where there is some substance to the domestic battery allegation, proactive measures on your part may help minimize negative consequences. Your participation in an alcohol treatment program, anger management class or counseling sessions can play an important role in the mitigation process. I have a great deal of experience helping my clients get help. I can direct you to an appropriate resource that can address the underlying problem, as well as seek the best possible result for you in the legal system.
