Mesa Domestic Violence Lawyer

Charged with domestic violence?

Domestic violence allegations arise in situations where the crime involves a spouse, former spouse, individuals residing in the same household, individuals who have a child in common, and blood relatives (such as grandparents, children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, and in- laws). These types of crimes can include dangerous crimes against children, endangerment, threatening and intimidating, assault/aggravated assault, kidnapping, trespass, child abuse, elder abuse, criminal trespass, criminal damage, disorderly conduct, harassment, stalking, custodial interference, and others.

Law enforcement takes these types of claims very seriously and may arrest an individual if the officer has probable cause to believe that domestic violence has been committed, even if it was committed outside the presence of the officer. A conviction of a domestic violence charge can result in jail or prison time, as well as require you to pay financial restitution to the victim, attend a domestic violence treatment program, perform community work service and other penalties. Using a weapon, causing substantial injuries or threatening/injuring a minor can all result in harsher penalties. You may also face enhanced penalties if you have an existing criminal record.
