No family or relationship is perfect. While disagreements will occur, they are often resolved quickly and civilly. Unfortunately, some arguments get elevated and to an unsafe level. If law enforcement is needed to intervene or one party seeks out law enforcement for help, this could result in an arrest and a charge for domestic violence.
Domestic violence charge
A domestic violence charge is a serious situation. It has severe ramifications that could impact the accused for years. These matters are emotional and heated, often resulting in one-sided stories being shared with law enforcement. This can create a distorted version of the facts, making it harder for your side of the story to be heard and known.
At Lewin Law Firm, PLLC, our attorneys understand the severity of the matter. Our firm is focused on providing a legal strategy to aid the accused in their efforts to dismiss the charges against them.
When creating a domestic violence defense, it is important to understand whether the alleged victim seeks to press charges. If they decide to not press charges, a possible strategy is to request the charges to be dropped.
In contrast, if they decide to press charges, the investigation phase will begin to provide evidence for your defense. Whether you claim self-defense, an illegal search by law enforcement, altered photos of the victim’s injuries or other defense, our law firm understands the importance of thoroughly examining all the details of the matter.
Maximize your legal options
By understanding the matter in totality, this helps maximize your legal options. It also ensures you are fully aware of the applicable laws, evidence at hand and defense options available. When moving forward with a defense, a legal professional can help you take steps to protect your rights and interests.
