A conviction on domestic violence or domestic assault charges has immediate and long-term negative consequences. Most clients are rightly concerned about the immediate consequences: they could end up in jail.
The long-term consequences of a domestic assault conviction can have a lasting negative impact on your life and your family. People convicted of domestic assault are not treated equally in divorce and child custody arrangements. They also are not permitted to possess a fire arm of any kind, including a hunting rifle.
If you have been accused of domestic assault, please contact a domestic violence attorney at The McAfee Law Firm, PLLC for effective criminal defense. Our firm represents clients charged with all types of domestic violence, including:
- Spousal rape
- Child abuse and neglect
- False offense reports
False claims of domestic assault are often used for leverage in divorce cases, however false claims and charges that are later recanted are still taken very seriously by the court. It is essential to have effective legal representation to obtain the best possible result. That's why it's wise to have a Certified Criminal Trial Specialist* and Certified Criminal Trial Advocate** from The McAfee Law Firm, PLLC, representing you.
