Defending Against Domestic Violence Charges
Being accused of or charged with domestic violence is scary. It has the potential to change the way people look at you forever, harming your good name long after your legal case has been resolved.
It is crucial to act quickly if you face domestic violence charges. The first step is putting the experienced attorneys of Schumacher Law Group on your side. Our team brings more than 25 years of criminal defense experience and is led by a former judge and prosecutor who understands these cases from all viewpoints.
The Stakes Are High
Misdemeanor domestic abuse can result in up to a year in jail and a fine as high as $5,000. Felony domestic abuse can result in far harsher penalties, including multiple years in prison and the ongoing complications that come from having a felony on your record. A domestic violence protective order can also result in you being kept away from your home and children, putting you behind the eight ball in any family law proceedings.
Telling Your Side Of The Story
Domestic violence is a real problem in our society and accusers deserve to be heard. We believe that it is important for your side of the story to be told too. We will examine the evidence and build a defense against these damaging allegations. Whether the police were called in the heat of an argument or things simply got out of hand, we will pursue an outcome that prevents you from being judged by your worst moment for the rest of your life.
Tracy Schumacher, our lead attorney, is a former district judge and prosecutor. She understands these cases from the prosecution’s point of view and can use that perspective to build a compelling defense that undercuts the prosecution’s evidence. She is skilled at crafting a story that will resonate with jurors and provide them with the information they need to make an informed decision about your case.
