Representing Clients Nationwide
Being accused of domestic violence is not only embarrassing and a possible threat to aspects of your daily life like your job, this kind of charge can seriously affect your future if a conviction follows. But remember, you are innocent until proven guilty, and domestic violence charges may not end up causing you harm if the evidence against you is weak.
At Chávez Law Group, our national domestic violence defense lawyers represent clients who wish to avoid a domestic violence conviction, or who seek to get the charges against them reduced. Hiring our attorneys can also be very helpful in negotiating alternative sentencing with the court system to help clients avoid the most limiting or damaging penalties.
Obtaining Proof of Domestic Violence
A charge of criminal domestic violence may be filed by a spouse, former spouse, live-in partner, or family member alleging that the accused caused physical harm or threatened to harm them.
A lot of domestic violence cases come down to one person’s word against the other’s. Even if there were witnesses to the alleged abuse, the witnesses are often only able to speak on what they saw or heard, which is usually from a distance and may be only part of the story. We’ll evaluate the evidence the prosecution has against you and examine all of the details with an eagle eye. If there are aspects of the situation that could be investigated for further insight, we will follow through with all possibilities.
