Defending a Domestic Battery Charge

Based on these and other factors, your attorney will provide you with a candid assessment of your prospects, including the strengths and weaknesses of your case. You will be able to make informed decisions about your defense.
In some cases, we may be able to persuade the prosecutor not to go forward or agree to file a lesser charge. If your decision is to go to trial, we will aggressively defend you every step of the way.
