Dedicated Defense Against Domestic Violence Allegations
A criminal charge for a serious domestic violence offense or domestic abuse offense often translates to the loss of rights that many of us take for granted.
When a person is accused of a domestic violence offense, courts almost always enter no contact orders, which usually means that the person charged loses access to his or her home. Persons convicted of domestic assault, harassment or a protection order violation can lose the right to own a firearm, child visitation privileges after a divorce and immigration status, increasing the risk of deportation.

Any Domestic Violence Accusation May Result In Arrest
Have you been accused of stalking or striking a family member, abusing a former spouse or your child, intimidating someone in your home or issuing threats of harm that led to a domestic violence complaint?
Because of mandatory arrest laws, if the police have probable cause that someone committed a domestic violence offense, the police must arrest the primary aggressor. If you have been arrested, attorneys Amy Muth and Jennifer Atwood have the dedication, client focus, experience and track record to help you defend against these serious charges.
