Special Domestic Violence Concerns
Domestic violence charges often involve:
- Disorderly conduct
- Criminal damage
- Violation of protection orders
Convictions for charges designated as domestic violence can carry long-lasting, severe effects people often are not fully aware of, including:
- Minimum of 26 sessions of counseling lasting 1.5 hours a week throughout a six-month period
- Possible loss or suspension of professional licensure
- Loss of the right to bear arms
- A negative effect on any pending divorce or child custody proceeding, or any pending case with Child Protective Services
The Process Of Defending Against Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic violence charges are sometimes heard in special courts where procedures differ from regular criminal proceedings. The victims of these crimes have more say during the proceedings and have the opportunity to address the court, potentially affecting the outcome of the judge’s decision.
I have extensive experience representing clients in court and know the procedures, judges and prosecutors well. My time spent as a defense lawyer has given me the knowledge needed to bring a satisfactory result, limiting the damage caused.
