Domestic Violence Defense
Don’t underestimate the seriousness of domestic violence charges or the importance of securing a Domestic Violence Defense Attorney. Domestic violence charges often begin with a call to 911 and a chaotic, confusing scene. The responding officers face great pressure to make an arrest. They often make assumptions or jump to conclusions without understanding the full picture of what happened. After the dust settles, you find yourself facing serious charges. A conviction for domestic battery in Illinois carries mandatory minimum penalties. Because it can never be expunged from your record or sealed, it will follow you for the rest of your life.
