Charged with Domestic Violence?

 

The first thing most of our clients facing a domestic violence charge ask is, “What comes next? What do I need to do?” Frequently these individuals have no criminal record and little or no experience with the criminal justice system. Our strategy resolves these cases as quickly and fairly as possible.

Early Stages : Avoiding Common Mistakes

 

It is absolutely critical in the early stages of your domestic violence case to steadfastly adhere to the provisions of the Mandatory Protection Order. One of the most common mistakes that can result in a new arrest and entirely new case, is contacting the alleged victim while the protection order is in place. It’s a common misconception that if the alleged victim contacts you first, you’re free to respond.  No contact means no contact.

Next Stages

 

No matter what the seriousness of a charge is, our first step is reviewing the State’s evidence, which is known as “discovery.” This includes police reports, body worn camera video, photos, the 9-1-1 call, witness statements and the parties’ criminal histories.

We immediately pull records documenting past instances of violence by the “alleged victim,” conduct interviews of relevant witnesses, review of the facts and work with our client to build a mitigation packet for the prosecutor.
