Domestic Violence Charges Can Be Extremely Damaging

We recognize how damaging domestic abuse charges can be, and how a conviction can not only result in criminal penalties, but also repercussions in related divorce, child custody and family law matters. If you have been accused, you may also have an order of protection, also referred to as a protective order or restraining order, taken out against you that can keep you from your home and children. Furthermore, Arizona also allows victims to pursue civil lawsuits. We will work hard to defend you against these charges.
