DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Defense of Criminal Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence charges in North Carolina move through the criminal justice system quickly and carry severe consequences with lasting implications for those who stand accused.  If you are facing domestic violence charges in North Carolina, you have everything to lose in a proceeding that has, from its very inception, already shown favor to the alleged victim, your accuser.  If you are reading this, chances are that you or a loved one has just been released from a 48-hour hold in the local jail. You may be forbidden to go home or to contact the people you love most. Regardless of your particular circumstances, no matter what the allegations against you may be, you need experienced counsel with skill in defending domestic violence charges who is available to immediately start working on your case, crafting your defenses and developing strategies to help you regain what you may have already lost.

Having a domestic violence charge on your record, even without a conviction, can have lasting implications, forever branding you with a social stigma.  If you are convicted, you could face a prison sentence, the possibility of never owning a firearm, and other severe consequences. No matter the circumstances, domestic violence charges can wreak havoc in your present life and forever short-change your future opportunities.
