Domestic Assault Defense Lawyer

Domestic assault is an offense that takes place within the home or it occurs against an ex-boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, or husband.

Fighting For The Best Possible Future

Domestic assault claims can lead to other things, such as an order for protection (OFP). This is a separate case in which the defendant can defend themselves against the order, especially when children are involved. An OFP can cause a parent to not see their biological children. In other words, the matter becomes a legal mess.

Some of the domestic-related claims include:

  • Domestic claims that involve assault in the first degree, second degree, third degree, fourth degree, or fifth degree.
  • Terroristic threats
  • Violation of an OFP.
  • False imprisonment or kidnapping.
  • Felony strangulation.
  • Interfering with an emergency call.
  • Malicious punishment of a child.
  • Child neglect or child abuse.
  • An aggravated assault that occurs within the home.

If convicted, the consequences go beyond time in prison and fines. There are collateral consequences caused by the presence of a criminal record and the violent offense that is on that record.
