Domestic Violence cases are often very emotional, which can lead to the accused making the situation worse by acting on clouded judgment. That is why the accused must get representation ASAP to curb their worst impulses that could end up making their situation much worse.
If you are accused of committing domestic violence, it is essential that you hire a former prosecutor and seasoned criminal defense attorney who has dealt with these offenses on both sides of the courtroom. This experience really shows when negotiating for a less strict restraining order that can seriously impact your relationships and shape the rest of your life.
The sooner you put your case in the hands of an experienced criminal defense lawyer, the more opportunity you will have to work toward a favorable outcome.
The familiarity of the parties can often contribute to a favorable defense. Due to the familial nature of the offense, parties oftentimes wish to put the past behind them and move forward. As long as the accused can show that the victim is not in danger from the defendant in the future, an experienced lawyer can reduce the sentence and get a favorable outcome for the defendant, including wiping the incident from the record.
If there is little chance of the relationship being mended, the case often turns into a he-said/she-said situation. Having a former prosecutor and seasoned defense attorney who has much experience on both sides of the courtroom in domestic violence cases and who will find creative solutions to counter these charges is invaluable.
