Domestic Violence

Atlanta Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer
Domestic violence charges are a serious matter.  Often, these charges and arrests come about as unintended consequenses from simple disputes. In fact, there are a significant number of cases in which the accuser tries to withdraw their allegations later and discovers that the prosecutor is the only one that can dismiss the case.
This is a problem in many cases, as the individual making the accusation may have exaggerated the situation due to anger, or may have been partially responsible. Many cases of domestic violence charges come about through a domestic disturbance call to law enforcement during an argument between any two “cohabitants”.
When the police arrive on the scene, they evaluate the situation, including whether harm has been inflicted on one or both of the individuals, and act accordingly. If one of the individuals claims to be a victim of domestic violence, law enforcement has little option other than to arrest the accused individual. In some cases both parties may be arrested.
In any domestic violence case, it is crucial that you act quickly and contact a domestic violence defense lawyer.
