DOMESTIC VIOLENCE


If you have been charged with or arrested for spousal abuse or domestic violence, it is important to remember that everything you say to a law enforcement officer will be used against you.  You should not answer questions or make any statement without an attorney present. Any explanations are better made by your lawyer on your behalf, rather than in the emotionally charged setting of an interrogation or arrest.Often claims of domestic violence, including domestic battery, stalking, child abuse, and charges of violating restraining orders, are the result of false accusations made by a party involved in a divorce or child custody action.  In such cases, our attorneys show the prosecution does not have the outside witnesses or independent evidence needed to prove the case against our client. In other cases, we negotiate for a favorable plea bargain or reduced charges to ensure against the adverse consequences of a conviction for domestic violence.If you or a loved one has been arrested, charged, or accused,  contact the Uman Law Firm for a free consultation with Jon D.
