When Domestic Matters Become Criminal Matters
Practically everyone has experienced an argument or disagreement with a spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend, close family member or neighbor at some time or another. Normally, such episodes are private and are resolved between the parties. Occasionally, anger leads to threats or attacks. Then someone may call the police for self-protection or to diffuse the tense situation.
Once the police are involved, it is no longer a private matter. The police will normally try to arrest someone and bring charges, even if the accuser recants. If you have been charged with a violent crime or a sex offense resulting from domestic violence, you need an empathetic, experienced defense attorney who will fight for your rights.
