Virginia Beach Domestic Violence Lawyer

Quality Legal Counsel in Hampton Roads

Domestic violence crimes can range from physical to sexual abuse of members of the family or shared household. Emotions typically run high in these cases and hiring an attorney can be a key step in securing an alternative disposition, such as a first-offender program or the dropping of charges. Depending on the offense, a domestic violence conviction can carry significant jail time.

An experienced Virginia Beach criminal defense lawyer can be the difference between keeping and losing your freedom. Oftentimes, allegations of domestic violence are tied in with an ongoing divorce action, and the outcome of the criminal case can have a tremendous effect on the divorce case. For this reason, you need an attorney who will aggressively attack the allegations against you.

Necessary Evidence for a Domestic Violence Conviction in VA

When an officer is called the scene of an alleged domestic violence act, they will immediately begin looking for signs of an altercation. Law enforcement does not take lightly to these claims and they will always be on the lookout for evidence that could lead to your arrest. In fact, there is very little evidence needed in order to detain you. If the arresting officer has a witness statement and signs of injury on the alleged victim, they could cuff you. While this time in your life may be frustrating, it is important to comply by the requests of the authorities and immediately work with an attorney. A legal representative can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
