Representation In Criminal Cases And Protective Order Hearings
If you have been charged with domestic violence, don’t assume that the state will dismiss your case if the person who made the allegations decides not to pursue the charges. The prosecutor may continue with the case without the alleged victim’s cooperation, especially if there were other witnesses or visible injuries to the alleged victim.
Penalties for domestic violence can include a jail sentence, fines, substance abuse or psychological counseling, and restrictions on owning firearms. In addition, any subsequent domestic violence charges may be raised from a misdemeanor to a felony.
We also represent people in matters involving temporary protection orders and civil protection orders (CPO). If a temporary protection order has been issued against you, it may include orders to vacate your home, refrain from communicating with other party and relinquish temporary custody of your children. Penalties for violating a protective order can include a jail sentence.
