Domestic Violence And Spousal Abuse Attorneys
If the police respond to a domestic violence call at your home, they typically take someone with them. The state of Illinois takes these matters very seriously and takes a near zero-tolerance approach when addressing domestic violence cases. Even if the alleged victim later chooses to not press charges, the government typically moves forward with a prosecution.
Domestic violence is an assault charge, which can be a felony resulting in severe penalties, including fines, jail time and a criminal record that could follow you for the rest of your life. If you are facing any kind of spousal abuse, domestic assault or domestic battery-related charges, speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney. At the St. Charles, Illinois-based law firm of Scott W. Sheen & Associates, P.C., we fight aggressively to protect your rights. Call us at 331-318-2280 immediately.
Sharp, Thorough Representation
While many accusations of domestic violence have merit, just as many are complete fabrications made out of spite or retaliation. When you hire our firm, we tenaciously pursue the truth and do everything we can to expose false allegations for the lies that they are and work to have any restraining orders or orders of protection removed.
When we take a case, we fully investigate it from every angle. We will interview the victim and any witnesses. We look at medical records, injury photos and any other evidence the prosecutors plan to use against you. Our attorneys have handled countless domestic violence cases, and we are committed to helping you reach the most favorable possible outcome. There may be other diversion outcomes that suit family situations call for details that end in dismissal of charges, restrictions apply.
