False Allegations Of Domestic Abuse
False allegations of domestic abuse do occur. Unfortunately, misunderstandings that arise due to false allegations could result in you going to prison. While you are entitled to the presumption that you are innocent until proven guilty, confusion about what actually occurred can result in a wrongful conviction.
Our job as criminal defense attorneys goes beyond mere representation. We put together an investigation to find out what did occur. We fight to keep unreliable evidence or testimony out. We go to court to prevent false allegations, hearsay or misidentifications from being used against you. Besides defending you against domestic violence allegations, we make every effort to minimize the damage to your reputation.
Legal Advice Concerning Restraining Orders

Our attorneys understand the rules and the timelines that pertain to restraining orders. Through guidance and advice, our attorneys can help you avoid violating the restraining order and keep you out of trouble.
