When Domestic Matters Lead To Complaints Of Violence
When arguments or fights at home intensify, thoughtful people will seek to work things out if possible. Sometimes, however, someone calls the police. Once law enforcement is involved, the chances are great that someone will be arrested. Even if the person who calls asks for charges to be dropped, this will not likely prevent legal troubles.
Whatever side of the equation you find yourself on, you need legal counsel to direct your next steps and pursue the best outcome for your future. Contact us at Crosby Law to learn how we can help.
If You Were Charged
Perhaps your spouse or significant other — or a bystander — decided to ask for help from the police after a private disagreement became an altercation. Now you have been accused and possibly arrested on charges of domestic violence. Make no mistake: Your future is on the line. A conviction may remove you from your home, put you in jail and keep you away from your children.
This is not a time to wait and see what happens or hope for the best. Our criminal defense attorneys at Crosby Law are ready to defend you vigorously. We will strive to keep you out of jail, get charges dropped or reduced, and mitigate the damage. If you have been accused of violating a restraining order, we will fight to get it lifted.
If You Were Threatened Or Hurt
You may have suffered harm in a domestic violence situation. If your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, partner or roommate attacked you or made you feel unsafe, you need a lawyer to help protect your rights and peace of mind. Attorney Matt Crosby is available at all hours to help you take back the reins of your life. We offer the legal services that you need, as follows:
- We will get you a restraining order.
