Why You Need Legal Counsel

What makes domestic violence cases different from other types of criminal cases is the fact that a mere allegation can result in you being thrown out of your own home and stripped of your right to possess guns—not to mention loss of child custody or visitation rights in cases involving children. A conviction can also make the loss of the right to possess firearms a near permanent situation under federal law.

Moreover, there are additional consequences for individuals who have professional licenses as there are often additional administrative consequences. Hiring an attorney who is not experienced in domestic violence can prove to be a mistake.

You need a legal advocate in Phoenix who can:

  • Keep you informed throughout the process
  • Take the big picture into consideration
  • Advise you on the unforeseen consequences
  • Provide guidance every step of the way

How Domestic Violence Cases Are Unique

The term domestic violence offense is quite misleading as many do not involve any violence at all. Many domestic violence 'crimes' result from the violation of an order of protection (restraining order). Some allegations of a violation of an order of protection are innocuous, such as a late phone call to a child or even a benign text message. Because Arizona law makes it very difficult to have custody of one's child if they are convicted of a domestic violence offense, false allegations are unfortunately made for tactical reasons on an all-too-frequent basis.

Reliable Defense Against Your Charges

The fact that a domestic relationship underlies the allegations can result in even harsher penalties upon conviction. Prosecutors are typically not concerned if victims are not willing to cooperate or testify at trial. Some try to coerce or intimidate victims to come to court. This is why retaining an experienced Phoenix domestic violence attorney is vital.
