violence must be carefully scrutinized by a defense counsel due to the
fact that these cases often arise out of emotional circumstances. Defense

How a Conviction Can Affect You
In certain circumstances, a vigorous defense at trial is not only required,
but the best course of action. Put simply, cases involving family members
probably have a higher rate of fabrication than any other type of case.
Therefore, it is critical to have a knowledgeable and experienced counsel
on your side when you face these serious charges.
The consequences of a domestic violence arrest or conviction can be severe.
Not only might you face jail time, but you will likely be subjected to
an order of protection restricting your ability to be around the alleged
victim. You may face negative collateral consequences, such as having
the arrest used against you in divorce proceedings or in custody disputes
involving children. You may also face personal and professional consequences,
which result from the negative stigma of being brandished "an abuser."
