Domestic violence is a very disturbing and very troubling charge. It’s troubling for the purported victim, and it’s troubling for the person accused. The person accused of committing domestic violence is still presumed innocent. That’s what we have in this country. We have a presumption of innocence. If you’re charged with domestic violence, at your very first appearance, at your arraignment, you’re going to be asked to sign what’s called a temporary protection order. If you sign that, what you’re saying is that you’re going to stay away from all of the protected parties listed on that document.

It may not be just the alleged victim. It could be children, it could be parents, it could be any number of other people listed on that document. You need criminal defense attorneys who are experienced in these matters and know what to look at when they look at that protection order. Even good people can be caught up on the wrong side of the law. You or your family member has never been in this situation before. We’re in this situation everyday. We’ll explain it to you, we’ll walk you through it, and you will feel comfortable with us representing you. If you’re stopped by the man, call the man: (513) 285-9020.
