Direct Attention From An Experienced Attorney

I only handle criminal defense cases. As the sole lawyer at my firm, you will always work with me. This means you will always know where your case stands and what I am doing to get the best outcome in your case.

Domestic violence is a broad category of crimes that range from minor to severe punishments. I have experience representing defendants charged with all types of domestic violence offenses, both felony and misdemeanor including:

  • Domestic battery
  • Domestic assault
  • Child abuse
  • Child endangerment

Domestic violence charges can be misdemeanors or felonies depending on the severity of the case. Whether you are charged with misdemeanor or felony, district attorneys always push for the maximum sentence possible, even when the victim suffers no visible injury.

Aggressive Defense To Find The Best Outcome

Domestic violence cases are tough for prosecutors to win due to claims of self-defense, lack of witnesses to the alleged event, lack of victim cooperation, and the inability to prove that what the alleged victim is saying is true. Even though these cases are difficult to prosecute, you still need a strong defense.

I will explore all options to find a positive outcome. Some defenses may include claiming self-defense, accidental injury, or a false or mistaken accusations. These are just some of the common defenses, and each case needs to be carefully evaluated to determine the best defense strategy.
