Family Violence: Defend Your Rights Against These Serious Charges
One of the most severe allegations that anyone can face is that of violence against a family member. The mere accusation of domestic violence can cause long-term damage to one’s reputation. A conviction can result in a fine of up to $10,000 and up to 99 years in prison.

Whether you face state or federal charges or are only under investigation, he will work aggressively to protect your rights.
Ask For An Attorney And Then Remain Silent
It is natural to want to explain your side of the story to the police when accused of a violent offense. Don’t be tempted. Law enforcement is not ‘just shooting the breeze.’ They are actively questioning you for evidence. You should not speak with any law enforcement officers until you have consulted an attorney!
Domestic abuse cases often hinge on the testimony of participants. The less you say, the less likely you are to incriminate yourself or make statements that can be used against you in court. If the police try to interview, politely invoke your right to remain silent, only speaking to request an attorney and then remain silent until a lawyer is present.
