At the Law Office of Mark Herman, you will work with a St. Paul domestic assault attorney who is not intimidated by the investigators and we will show you why you shouldn’t be either.
Through our accomplished and comprehensive criminal defense strategies, we work toward finding the best solution in the case. If the matter is one that was brought about because of a child custody issue, retaliation, or spite, we will uncover this fact so that you do not have to pay penalties for a crime that you did not commit. Showing the facts can also help you when challenging any Orders for Protection that may have been brought against you to keep you away from your home and any children you may have.
Challenging Domestic Violence Charges
There is no question that domestic violence is serious and so are the charges that accompany an accusation. An individual who accuses you of domestic assault could be accusing you of fear of bodily harm, harassment, stalking terroristic threats, child abuse, and spousal abuse. You do not have to place a hand on a person for them to accuse you of domestic assault. All you have to do is say something that they perceive to be a threat and state that they are in fear of their life.
The result of a person feeling threatened is an Order for Protection. This is almost always associated with a domestic assault accusation and is something that you and your Minneapolis domestic assault lawyer can work together to combat.
Challenging Orders For Protection
Although an Order for Protection, or OFP, may be brought against you without you being able to defend yourself, you will be given the opportunity to defend yourself with your attorney present. This goes hand-in-hand with the domestic assault charge because no merit to the Order for Protection means that there may not be merit to the domestic assault case either. Unfortunately, domestic assault tends to be used as a method to keep a person away from their family whether they did something wrong or not. Regardless of the reason for the accusation, you deserve a fair and skillful defense.
