When charged with domestic assault and/or battery, an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side is critical. At first, you may feel you have done nothing wrong and do not consider yourself a criminal. However, make no mistake—these charges are serious and if found guilty you will have a criminal record.
A criminal record, especially for a crime involving “violence,” no matter how mild the incident was or how overstated the victims report is, is serious. In fact, it makes you a violent offender in the eyes of future employers, landlords and anyone else who runs a background check on you for any reason.

Defending from False Accusations of Domestic Violence

While you are supposedly “innocent until proven guilty,” this tactic occasionally appears in family law courts. An experienced attorney and effective defense strategy helps to protect your rights in these situations.
Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges
A domestic violence charge typically arises in situations where only two people are present. Specifically, the victim, or accuser, and the perpetrator, or accused. This often results in a “he said, she said” situation. In these cases, retaining an experienced lawyer who is familiar with the procedures of both family law and criminal defense court makes a big difference.
