THE CONSEQUENCES OF A DOMESTIC ABUSE CHARGE ARE FELT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY
A domestic violence charge comes with either a restraining order or conditions of release which function essentially the same as a restraining order. Some of the terms or conditions that are common in these cases include:
- Not being able to return home
- No contact with the victim of the domestic violence
- No contact with your children
- No possession of firearms (especially true when a firearm was an element in the original case)
- No alcohol
PROVIDING A COMPREHENSIVE, PERSONALIZED DEFENSE
We begin our criminal defense work by getting to know you and your connections to your family and the community. Finding out who you are will help us build the positive narrative to achieve goals such as being released on bond, bond reduction and/or a release on your own recognizance.
We have a reputation for doing our homework. If your actions were a result of self-defense or if your spouse is making false accusations to gain an advantage in a divorce, we will know your story better than anyone in that courtroom.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE DEFENSE FOR MILITARY SERVICE MEMBERS
Things are handled differently for members of the military who have been accused of domestic abuse. Usually, if a service member has charges pending against him or her, he or she will not be allowed to deploy. However, the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps may also work out a solution where deployment occurs and the case is resolved in the military justice system.
We are familiar with the JAG Corps at Tyndall Air Force Base, the U.S. Navy Support Activity Center, Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field. We also have experience representing military personnel who may have criminal charges pending in Bay County and the surrounding areas.
