Defending Against the Damage Caused by a Domestic Violence Conviction
Few people actually understand the full severity of a domestic violence conviction. Pleading guilty to, or receiving an unfavorable judgment at a temporary restraining order hearing can:
- Limit your chances of obtaining employment
- Disqualify you from obtaining specialized licenses
- Lead to jail time
- Limit your ability to interact with your family
- Affect your ability to remain in the United States if you are not a Citizen
Being charged with domestic abuse can lead to a temporary restraining order that prohibits you from returning home while your case is pending. And if you are unsuccessful at defending yourself at a final restraining order hearing, the restraints become permanent and final.
With our guidance, you will be able to combat the penalties stemming from a conviction and significantly increase the chances of avoiding a final restraining order barring you from your family and your home permanently. Whether you wish to negotiate a favorable plea arrangement or take your case to trial, we will fight to help you find the best resolutions possible in your unique situation.
