If you have been accused of domestic violence or abuse, it is critical that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. Because allegations of domestic violence often arise in the privacy of your home, there are seldom witnesses who can testify as to what really happened. The sooner you can tell your story to a lawyer, who can then present it to a judge, the better your chances of minimizing the consequences of an arrest or charge.

Accusations Are Easy. We Demand Proof.
Allegations of domestic violence often arise as the result of a domestic dispute. Police can be called, even when neither party has been physically assaulted or the party being accused acted in self-defense. When the police arrive, they will seldom attempt to determine what happened or who is at fault. They will simply arrest you, based on the statements of the other party.
Our firm aggressively protects men and women in all proceedings stemming from allegations of domestic violence, including assault, harassment and interference with phone service. We will take action quickly to learn as much as we can about your side of the story, and to gather any evidence to support your position. We will also look for evidence, including character references, that indicate that the allegations are inconsistent with your history and personality.
Domestic violence allegations can lead to consequences that will last a lifetime. Simply being charged with domestic abuse can have an impact on future employment, housing and recreational opportunities. If you are convicted, you can lose your rights to own or use weapons under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
