Domestic violence crimes are a hot topic in many communities throughout our area, as well as national attention on various news and talk show programs. This exposure and the increased political pressure on domestic violence issues has led to a more aggressive approach in prosecuting any allegation of a domestic violence crime.

The best defense of an accusation of a domestic violence crime is to seek experienced legal advice, representation and hire a professional Domestic Violence Attorney.
