Phoenix Domestic Violence Lawyer and Defending your Case
Facing accusations of domestic violence
is a serious matter. The charge can be either a misdemeanor or a felony offense, and in either case it is necessary to have a powerful Phoenix domestic violence defense lawyer
fighting on your behalf. There are actions that should be taken by your defense lawyer at once in order to fight to avoid the penalties you can face if you are convicted. As these cases are often based upon statements by one individual, and may lack other evidence, it can result in a he said/she said legal situation. Fighting to get charges dismissed that have no corroborating evidence takes fast and skillful negotiation with the prosecutor. At the Law Offices of Joshua S. Davidson, our attorney is a former prosecutor and has a strong understanding of how to negotiate behind the scenes on behalf of the client.
Defending Cases of Domestic Violence in Phoenix
There are frequently accusations made of domestic violence when a bitter and contentious breakup is taking place. There have been countless cases of false accusations of domestic violence when one party is attempting to discredit the other to gain an advantage regarding custody or other matter involved in the spllit. If you are facing false accusations, it is crucial that you act quickly, as unfortunately being innocent is not enough: you could be convicted without a defense lawyer immediately getting into action to expose the truth of the situation.
Other cases involve extenuating circumstances, such as cases of self defense in which an injury occurred during a physical altercation. The person who appears to be injured or claims injury or fear of harm can cause you to be charged with the crime. Law enforcement has little option other than to arrest and charge any person who is accused of such actions, and even later, if the individual making the accusation recants, only the prosecutor can have the charges dismissed. This procedure is to avoid cases in which a victim is intimidated into claiming they made false statements, but it makes charges of domestic violence particularly difficult for those who are not guilty of the crime. The legal team at the firm is prepared to evaluate your situation and advise you how the defense will fight to defend you in court.
