Domestic Violence

If you are arrested for domestic violence, speak with an experienced lawyer immediately.

What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence (DV) offenses are violent crimes committed by a person who has, or has had, an intimate relationship or is otherwise related to the victim. Domestic violence (DV) offenses encompass several crimes. These include homicide, aggravated assault, assault and stalking. DV crimes involve both felonies and misdemeanors.

What Happens If I Am Charged With Domestic Violence?

After a person is arrested for DV, the presiding judge sets bond and the conditions of release. The amount of bail that is set is a factor of several issues. These include a person’s criminal history, his ties to the community and the offense with which he is charged.

Once bail is posted, contact us. Even if you cannot post bail, ask a relative to contact us. Do not plead guilty to DV without speaking to a lawyer.

What Are The Consequences of a Domestic Violence Conviction?

A conviction for DV is also a permanent bar to firearms possession. Therefore, a misdemeanor weapons charge following a DV conviction may escalate into a federal indictment for unlawful firearms possession. Moreover, convictions for DV have grave immigration consequences. DV offenses may quickly become complex. Specifically, there are generally several conditions associated with posting bail in DV cases. Being accused of violation any of these bail conditions will lead to additional charges being placed against the defendant.

A conviction for DV will also entail a custodial sentence, or a term that is probated. The Court may also require the offender to enroll in anger management classes or a battery intervention program as part of the sentence. If convicted, a defendant would also be ordered to stay away
from the victim or the victim’s place of work.

Do I Need Legal Assistance if I Am Charged With Domestic Violence?

Do not plead guilty to DV without counsel. We regularly have had success in DV cases in both Tennessee and Mississippi. Many of these cases are scheduled for trial. We are able to obtain settlements that do not require a guilty plea and result in dismissals for our clients.
