A fight got heated, and now you’re facing domestic abuse charges. But is that an accurate representation of what actually happened? A domestic abuse charge can bring potentially severe penalties, and so if you are facing these charges, you need an experienced and determined lawyer on your side to defend your rights and your future. At Longshore Law Firm, I, Edward Longshore, have the experience and legal savvy to fight these charges and protect your reputation.
What Qualifies As Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence, also known as domestic assault or spousal abuse– isn’t always an issue between spouses romantic partners. It can occur anytime people live together. Therefore, child abuse could be considered domestic violence, as could getting in a fight with a roommate. Domestic violence doesn’t always have to involve physical violence, either. It could also involve charges of emotional, psychological or financial abuse. Fighting domestic abuse charges requires the expertise of an experienced attorney. I can evaluate what happened in your case and come up with the strongest possible defense to the charges you face.
The Person Who Filed The Charges Cannot Drop Them
In many cases, a person who reports another for domestic violence will later want to drop the charges. But by that time it is already too late. When another person files domestic violence charges against you, they can’t simply revoke those charges because they changed their mind. At that point , the prosecution is in the hands of the state, and that is why you need an experienced attorney on your side to fight the charges and help give you your life back.
