Domestic Violence/Spousal Abuse
Allegations of domestic violence are taken very seriously by the courts. Unfortunately the accused do not always have the benefit of the doubt. This can be extremely unfair to those charged because in most cases of domestic abuse, there are different versions of the truth. That is why it is so important to have an aggressive legal fighter in your corner. Otherwise, if convicted, you may face jail time, a restraining order and a permanent record. In addition, a conviction of domestic violence can even affect your parental rights.
