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.

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.
