Domestic violence is a crime which can be charged for an assortment of offenses being committed against another person with whom you have a close relationship with or live in the same household with. Although these charges are typically made against someone with whom you are in a romantic relationship, it is not always the case. False allegations can be made or an argument can be taken out of context and law enforcement can be called, leading to your arrest. If you have found yourself in this situation, our La Grange criminal defense lawyer at Phil Baker P.C. is prepared to help.
The offenses listed above can be charged as domestic violence if they are committed against a spouse, former spouse, roommate, family member, or the other parent of a child. Domestic violence charges are taken very seriously in the eyes of prosecutors and law enforcement. The prosecuting attorney on your case will be prepared to go to battle in order to convict you, which is why hiring your own La Grange domestic violence lawyer to defend you is vital. We are here to defend your rights and help you avoid a conviction.
If you are convicted of domestic violence, you could face immediate criminal consequences involving time in jail, significant fines, and have a restraining order taken out on you. You would no longer be able to return to the shared residence or see the alleged victim or your children, if you share children with them. Our firm represents clients in La Grange, Fayette, Colorado, Austin, Lee, Lavaca, Bastrop, and Washington Counties.
