Consider the impacts of a domestic violence conviction

It is no secret that domestic violence charges are very serious charges that can have some very serious impacts on your life. The most serious of these is that you might be ordered to stay away from certain family members. This might even include your spouse and children. We know how difficult that might be, but that isn't the only way that your life might be affected by these charges.

If you are convicted of domestic violence, the impacts are even greater. In fact, a new United States Supreme Court increases the effects of a domestic violence conviction even more than what they were just a week ago. The ruling notes that domestic violence convictions, even if the conviction is listed as a misdemeanor, can mean that you aren't able to own a firearm.

We understand that some domestic violence cases come down to your word against the other party's word. That can make these cases difficult and complex. When we work on your case, we work to find out the truth. We look for evidence that we can use in your defense. We work to present your case in a way that introduces reasonable doubt into the picture.

Going to trial isn't your only option in a domestic violence case. We might be able to work out a deal with the prosecution to resolve your case. A plea agreement might get your case resolved faster and with fewer penalties than if you went to trial. Of course, you should carefully consider all of the effects of the plea agreement before you enter into one. We can help you learn those effects.
