Assault And Domestic Violence

If you've been arrested and charged with domestic violence, it's easy to feel that you've already been convicted, too.

The truth is, domestic violence carries some of the worst stigmas of any criminal offense. And to make matters worse, a domestic violence conviction can not only result in jail time and a criminal record, but also affect your rights as a parent and property owner.

Learn How We Can Help You Face Your Charges

Many cases involving alleged domestic violence arise out of heated disagreements where there can be differing accounts of the facts. It is not uncommon for alleged victims to make exaggerated or, worse, outright false claims. Unfortunately, once the criminal justice system begins turning its gears, it can be difficult to undo the damage of exaggerated stories or baseless accusations.

In fighting to help you avoid a criminal conviction on assault/domestic violence charges in Alaska, we can:

  • Look for evidence that you acted in self-defense
  • Pursue options if the alleged victim has recanted or otherwise wishes to drop charges
  • Negotiate with prosecutors for a fair plea bargain
  • Try your case and seek an acquittal by a jury

Don't take your situation lightly. In addition to your criminal penalties, a protective order could force you to give up custody of your children, pay support to your spouse/partner and lose the right to own firearms.
