Consequences of Domestic Violence Convictions:
What distinguishes a domestic violence charge from a similar assault charge is not the offense itself, but rather it is the way the prosecutor and the Court will treat the charge. Often times, the Court will require the defendant to participate in “batterer’s treatment programs”, will place them on probation to monitor their behavior, and in some cases order an active jail time. With hundreds of domestic violence cases, we can help you through this difficult time and work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.
