What is domestic violence?

Domestic violence is violence committed by someone in the victim’s domestic circle. This includes partners and ex-partners, immediate family members, other relatives and family friends.

The term ‘domestic violence’ is used when there is a close relationship between the offender and the victim. There is usually a power gap between them. The victim is dependent on the offender. Domestic violence can take the form of physical, sexual or psychological abuse.

Should you hire a lawyer for a domestic violence case?

Many clients wonder if they should hire an lawyer to represent them in their domestic violence case. Often, the victim may not want to “press charges,” so it may seem like the situation is not that serious. A conviction for a domestic violence case has a lot of severe consequences that can have a lasting impact on your reputation and ability to seek employment. An experienced domestic violence lawyer can help minimize the consequences of an arrest and obtain the most favorable resolution. Also, domestic violence cases can take a significant amount of time to resolve, and often having an attorney working on your side can help make the process go more quickly.

Building your defense case

An attorney can rapidly obtain discovery materials from the state’s attorney, which include police reports and witness statements. This foundational information is the key to forming your defense strategy. Often, additional information such as emergency calls, police bodycam footage, and video surveillance may exist, which must be preserved by filing an immediate motion with the court. It is not uncommon for police reports to contain errors, exaggerated information, and outright false information. In some cases, we work with our private investigator to take recorded statements from witnesses to set the record straight.

Representing you in court

A courtroom is an unfamiliar, fast-moving environment. Having a trusted and experienced advocate to advocate on your behalf can make a significant difference. Many people accused of crimes do not understand that since everything they say can be used against them it puts them in a horrible position when they have to speak on their own behalf in court. Many self- represented individuals make the mistake of making comments in court, which are self-incriminating.
