Because of the increase in domestic violence awareness programs, the very fact that you have been charged with a domestic violence-related crime can mean that you have already been stigmatized (or, even had a restraining order brought against you). However, “domestic violence” is one of those amorphous terms that can apply to a broad variety of crimes. Regardless of the nature of the actual charge against you, you will want to have an experienced domestic violence lawyer defending you so that you do not suffer the deleterious effects that a conviction on such charges can bring.
When you have been accused of being an offender in a domestic violence case, you need a knowledgeable Montgomery County domestic violence defense attorney to defend your case. An experienced criminal defense attorney can mean the difference between a felony charge and misdemeanor assault.

Defending Against Domestic Violence Charges
It is up to the prosecuting attorney to prove that you are guilty of the crimes that the state is bringing against you. And, without solid proof, a conviction is unlikely.
Some of the defenses available to clients facing domestic charges are:
- Self-Defense: This argument can be presented when you took the appropriate measures to prevent the accusing party from inflicting physical harm upon you.
- Defense of a Third Party: This argument can be used when the accuser’s injuries can be attributed to action you took to block or prevent the accuser from inflicting physical harm upon another individual.
- Lack of Intent: This argument can be used when the accuser’s injuries can be attributed to actions that were not intended to inflict harm.
- Lack of a Crime: This argument can be put forward when the accuser’s injuries can be shown to have been self-inflicted or proven to have never occurred.
One of our domestic violence attorneys in Montgomery County can review the details of your case and determine how to approach your defense.
