Gilbert Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is taken very seriously in the State of Arizona, including the Town of Gilbert. If you have been charged with a domestic violence related offense, you could be facing penalties including prison or jail sentences, probation, restraining orders and domestic violence classes. Domestic violence claims are often made during contentious divorces or as a result of other volatile relationships and it is critical to engage with an attorney who understands the relationship dynamics involved with these types of allegations. A domestic violence related conviction can have lasting consequences, including a criminal record and potential restriction of gun rights.

Domestic violence can involve various kinds of allegations of abuse, such as physical violence, assault, the threat of violence, neglect, preventing an individual from obtaining medical attention, disorderly conduct, criminal damage, harassment and other similar violations. Additionally, domestic violence can be alleged when the crime involves any family member related by marriage or blood, a girlfriend/boyfriend, the parent of your child and other domestic relationships. If you are convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence charge for the third time in an 84 month period, you could be charged with a felony. This is considered aggravated domestic violence; it is a class five felony and carries up to a 2.5 year prison sentence.

Trent handled cases for me on two different occasions involving tickets for seat belt violations in commercial vehicles. Very happy with results. All charges dismissed. One case in Flagstaff and one case in Gilbert Court. KF
