Defending Those Who Have Been Wrongfully Accused Of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is often a delicate legal topic. As it is a serious problem, charges of domestic violence can come with harsh, lasting penalties. For those who have been wrongfully accused, however, a nightmare legal scenario can unfold that may jeopardize their reputation as well as their freedom.

A Multitude Of Viable Defense Strategies

Taking on domestic violence charges is no minor task. The strict, looming penalties for assault can have a significant impact on your life, and it may seem as though no one is inclined to hear your side of the story. Fortunately, there are several avenues for fighting charges related to domestic violence, including:

  • Mistaken identity: Instances of the wrong party being accused do happen. By establishing an alibi, you can mount an effective defense.
  • Establishing a lack of evidence: An experienced attorney can locate the weaknesses in the prosecution’s argument.
  • Proving that the allegations are intentionally false: Individuals will occasionally levy false charges out of spite. This can occur in the background of contentious divorce or child custody matters.
  • An act of self-defense: If you were not the aggressor and were protecting yourself or your children, you may have a valid case for self-defense.

During domestic violence cases, the court rightfully seeks to protect the victim. If you are facing false accusations, however, an effective lawyer can help you defend your legal rights. Facing criminal charges is never an ideal reality, but experienced legal assistance can position you for a better outcome.
