Arguments happen but sometimes things go a step too far. In Wisconsin, someone is going to jail if the cops are called to the scene of a domestic dispute. Once that cat is out of the bag it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney protecting your rights and reputation from the damage of a domestic violence conviction.
I bring more than 20 years of criminal defense experience to domestic abuse cases in Madison and surrounding Wisconsin communities. I have served as a prosecutor and understand how these cases are built and where their weaknesses are.
Domestic violence charges have the potential to affect many areas of your life.
The criminal consequences of a domestic violence conviction are severe, including time behind bars, steep fines, and going through the rest of your life with a criminal record showing up on background checks.
If you are going through a divorce or custody battle, being accused of domestic violence could result in your removal from your home and harm your chances of being granted legal custody.
Do you enjoy owning and using a firearm? You can kiss that goodbye if you are convicted of domestic violence.
Even if your spouse, partner or significant other recants or expresses an unwillingness to press charges, it is not going to help you. Your fate is in the hands of the prosecution and you need an advocate fighting for you.
