Getting into an argument with your spouse or significant other could lead to criminal charges. You should speak to a criminal defense lawyer if you are accused of a domestic violence related offense, such as:
- Disorderly Conduct
- Criminal Damage to Property
- Substantial Battery
- Aggravated Battery
- Intimidation of a Victim
- Domestic Abuse
- Any other domestic violence related offense
Cases involving domestic violence can be complicated, and the system is often very one-sided in favor of the alleged victim. When police respond to a domestic violence call, they often will take one of the two people involved into custody. Attorney Todd Simon has experience dealing with these types of cases. We understand that not every argument between two loved ones should be charged as a criminal offense. We also realize that sometimes an alleged victim is making certain allegations that are exaggerated, or completely untrue.
Domestic violence related offenses can have a lasting impact on the accused which can go far beyond the courtroom. A conviction for a domestic violence offense can result in jail time, costly fines, and losing your right to own or possess a firearm. That is why it is important that you hire an attorney who can advocate for you and tell the prosecutor your side of the story. Contact us for a free consultation.
