We all know that violence within a household can constitute a serious crime, so a skilled and accomplished domestic violence attorney is essential to defending your liberty.
It is especially important to have an expert domestic violence lawyer at your side because these types of charges have become front-page news in our society. As a social problem, it is a serious and devastating issue: the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) estimates that one in three women and one in four men experience physical violence in the home during their lives.
Domestic Violence Law
On a personal level, you need a domestic violence attorney who knows how to use the law to best protect you, with a defense tailored to the facts of your case. Core laws used for this type of defense include the definitions of domestic violence from the Domestic Relations statutes (“Domestic violence; definitions”: Title XLIII, Chapter 741.28) and the descriptions of domestic violence within the same section (“Domestic violence; injunction; powers and duties of court and clerk; petition; notice and hearing; temporary injunction; issuance of injunction; statewide verification system; enforcement; public records exemption”: Title XLIII, Chapter 741.30).
