Being charged with domestic violence can turn your life upside down. Suddenly, everything can change. You may not be able to return to your home, see your children and in some instances, you could lose your job. This can all happen before you even appear in court on the charges.
Domestic violence is often a matter of "he said/she said." Even though there may not be any visible injuries to either party, if one party says the other party was violent or that he or she felt threatened, then police officers are required to make an arrest. The other party does not even have to want to press charges. In other cases, the alleged victim may want to press charges and later changes his or her mind. The prosecutor will normally continue with the case against the defendant.
At The Foley Law Firm, we represent people accused of domestic violence. This includes military members who are facing such charges. Attorney David Foley understands domestic violence cases -- in fact, he actually wrote the book that prosecutors in the 4th Judicial District Attorney's office use. He is familiar with the strategies and tactics that prosecutors employ in these cases.
At The Foley Law Firm, we will thoroughly investigate your case and attempt to negotiate with the prosecutor, if necessary; however, we will aggressively litigate your case when needed.
