Vigorous Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence charges can be filed against anyone living in a home who is accused of harming or threatening to harm another person in the home. It can be husband against wife, adult against child, child against adult (including elderly adults) or one unmarried person against another.

While it is wise to protect family members against harm by other family members, not all domestic violence charges are what they seem. You can be charged with domestic violence without ever touching the other person. Charges can be leveled against you for ulterior reasons, such as obtaining advantage in a custody fight.
