Carefully Investigating the Domestic Violence Charges Against You
Domestic violence crimes are a special category of criminal offenses that are defined in part by the relationship between the alleged perpetrator and the alleged victim. The following are some of the most common offenses that come under the heading of domestic violence:
- Criminal Contempt
- Criminal Harassment
- Restraining Orders
- Service for Victims of Domestic Violence
In addition to criminal charges, you may have been served with a restraining order. If you violate the restraining order, you may end up facing additional criminal charges for contempt of court. I regularly help clients respond to both restraining orders and criminal charges.
Maybe you have been falsely accused. Maybe you acted in self-defense. If you hire me to represent you, I will explore these and all other criminal defense options. To get a lawyer with 30 years of criminal law experience working on your case, call me today at 609-390-4600.
