We Take Domestic Violence Seriously

Domestic violence is an assault or battery perpetrated against someone with whom you share a close relationship. Though many charges of domestic violence are legitimate, there are a disturbing number of baseless charges filed by angry or jealous spouses. You may think that a “he said-she said” case would be hard for a prosecutor to prove, but many people have been convicted solely on their accuser’s testimony.

One of the main advantages of retaining our experienced Fredericksburg domestic violence defense attorney is that we can effectively reveal inconsistencies in the prosecution’s case and raise reasonable doubt. On the other hand, if you made a mistake, we can work with that, too. A judge may show leniency to domestic violence defendants who display genuine sorrow for their actions and a willingness to change.

The Consequences of Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence is a serious offense under Virginia law. However, a first-time offender may be eligible for a deferred disposition.

This means that you would receive a combination of the following:

  • Probation
  • Anger management and/ or other classes at your expense
  • Fines

Upon successful completion of the court’s requirements, you would not have a conviction on your record. The punishment for domestic violence escalates with each subsequent conviction. If you have two or more prior convictions for domestic violence, your next charge will be a felony, with the very real possibility of substantial jail time. If you are in this situation, you can trust our Fredericksburg domestic violence lawyer to aggressively defend your case.
