DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

DO NOT TRY TO HELP YOURSELF, WITH EITHER THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY OR THE POLICE! 

Our office can assist you in obtaining counseling if desired, and appropriately work with your spouse or significant other in mitigating the offense.

Board Certified Specialist in Criminal Law

A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGE OR CONVICTION CAN RESULT IN:

  • A permanent legal presumption which can prevent you from ever obtaining custody of your own children in a subsequent divorce action (even years later, and with a different partner);
  • Criminal or civil restraining orders which may affect you for YEARS after your arrest;
  • Exclusion from your own home and loss of contact with your own children;
  • A ten year to lifetime prohibition on possessing any  firearms or ammunition;
  • Mandatory “batterers” treatment from one to twelve months in length;
  • Suspension of an unrelated professional license (medical, teaching vocational, legal, etc.)


Domestic Violence charges can result in extremely serious consequences and the legal representation that you obtain now may significantly affect the ultimate outcome of your case, including reduced consequences and/or treatment instead of incarceration.  Therefore, please carefully consider the following in choosing your next actions.
