Think about all the aspects of your life that are affected by an accusation of domestic violence. You might have to face criminal charges. You might face the end of the relationship. You could be prevented from seeing your children or other people because of court orders that were handed down because of the accusations. You might also face the social scrutiny and other life effects of this type of accusation.
We know that you are probably worried about everything that an accusation like this has associated with it. We can’t promise you that the social stigma and other life effects will stop. We can’t promise that your relationship will go back to how it was. We focus on helping you with the legal aspect of your case so that we can minimize the collateral damages that you will have to endure.
Collateral damages, such as having trouble getting a job or rental home because you have domestic violence entries on your criminal record, can make it hard to live life. A domestic violence conviction, even if it is a misdemeanor, can prevent you from being able to legally own a firearm. That is a big collateral consequence to deal with for a misdemeanor conviction.
