We Look At The Law Differently
Misdemeanor Domestic Violence
Some misdemeanor domestic violence cases border on the absurd. An argument among spouses, domestic partners, cohabitants, or those in a dating relationship leads to one person getting in another person’s space and somebody pushes the other person away. Police arrive, ask how you are related and what happened, and the next thing you know somebody is hauled off to jail and charged with domestic violence.
Felony Domestic Violence
Typically, felony domestic violence cases involve traumatic injury to the victim. We are way beyond pushing when it comes to felony cases. We’re talking about significant bruising, contusions, bleeding, medical or prenatal complications, or, perhaps, broken eye-sockets, bones, and a host of traumatic conditions. Depending on the evidence in the case, attempted murder charges may be lurking.
Practical Consequences of Domestic Violence Conviction
Domestic violence charges can lead to harsh consequences – including imprisonment, loss of custody or visitation rights with your children, costly and time-consuming batterers’ treatment programs, fines, fees, firearms prohibitions (say good-bye to your second amendment rights), search of your person and residence without a warrant (say good-bye to your 4th amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures), deportation, loss of job or employment opportunities, and revocation of professional licenses, among other things.
