Tell Your Side Of The Story After Domestic Violence Charges

Every family has arguments from time to time, and it’s not uncommon for arguments to become heated. But if a disagreement erupts into physical violence or the threat of physical violence, it becomes a legal violation that can lead to domestic violence charges.

Once the police are summoned, whether they are truly needed or not, it can be difficult to avoid criminal charges and the legal maze that it will take to sort the matter out. In some cases, a well-meaning neighbor or bystander will hear yelling and contact law enforcement just in case. In other cases, the alleged victim will call 911 him- or herself. In almost every situation, though, it boils down to a case of “he said, she said.”

At The Law Offices of Bradley J. Friedman, I am committed to helping you tell your side of the story. I believe that everyone deserves their day in court.

Anticipate Restraining Orders And Other Challenges

When facing domestic abuse charges, one of the first problems you may face is the imposition of a restraining order. While this can provide a useful cooling-off period, it can also deprive you of access to your own home and your children. I can help you maintain access to your loved ones and your residence while your legal matter is being resolved.

If the domestic violence charges you are facing are connected to an alleged sexual assault, see my Rape Accusations & Defense page for more information about the defense services I can offer in this type of case.

You Deserve To Be Heard

Anyone who has been charged with domestic violence has a right to tell his or her side of the story. As your attorney, I will work with you to identify the best avenues of defense, and to push for dropped or reduced charges whenever possible.
