Domestic Violence And Orders Of Protection
Domestic violence charges can originate in a variety of ways. In some cases, a person becomes drunk or aggressive, or simply makes things up. In other cases, a divorce or breakup can lead to accusations of violence, whether real or imagined. Most of the time, a call to the police is what triggers criminal charges and subsequent orders of protection.
Share Your Side Of The Story
If you are facing accusations of domestic violence, it is in your best interests to make sure your side of the story is heard. Good people can find themselves in difficult situations, but an experienced criminal defense attorney can protect your rights.
Any criminal charge involving violence, or the threat of an order of protection being placed against you, needs to be taken seriously. A conviction for a violent offense, such as battery and assault charges, can have lifelong consequences and cannot be removed from your record through expungement. At The Law Office of Jessica Koester, LLC, we will fight these charges vigorously and make sure your side of the story is heard.
Act Quickly To Protect Your Rights
After an allegation of domestic violence, it is important to move quickly to protect your rights. We will work vigorously to safeguard your reputation.
If an order of protection is levied against you, it can have a tremendous impact on any family law proceedings that are going on, and could even keep you from living in your marital home. In extreme cases, you may not even be able to see your children. This is too great a burden to bear over a misunderstanding or as the result of a domestic squabble where both parties were involved.
