Domestic Violence Charges, Assault Causing Bodily Injury
When the police are called to the scene of a domestic disturbance, they often make an arrest. After the arrest, the district attorney’s office will frequently charge assault causing bodily injury, even if the other party does not wish to pursue charges.
A domestic violence charge often includes losing access to your home and children. If you are facing accusations, you need aggressive defense representation.
It is not uncommon in custody disputes for one parent to falsely accuse the other of child abuse or domestic assault. Our lawyers investigate the charges to determine whether there is a motive behind the accusations. If you have a restraining order or an order of protection wrongfully placed against you, we will work aggressively to have it removed.
