How a Conviction Can Affect You

Man behind bars - Domestic Violence LawyerIn 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."
