Attleboro Domestic Violence Attorney
Building a Strong Defense for Clients in Fall River
Domestic violence charges often arise from arguments or altercations between members of the same family or household. When situations escalate, the police are called and an arrest is made. At the Law Office of James M. Caramanica, P.C., our domestic violence lawyer in Attleboro has represented clients in Fall River and surrounding areas since 1994.
The Impact of Criminal Charges
Being charged with domestic violence has an immediate and dramatic impact on your life. If you are charged with domestic violence, a restraining order may be requested by the other party. This can interfere with your ability to remain in your home and spend time with your children, even before you have a chance to defend yourself in court.
The penalties for conviction may include:
- A jail sentence
- Community service
A domestic violence conviction will continue to impact your life after you have completed your sentence. Once you have a criminal record, you may find it is difficult to get a job, pursue higher education, advance in your career, or get a professional license. There could also be a permanent restraining order, which can interfere with your ability to maintain a healthy relationship with your children. It is important to hire a knowledgeable defense attorney to ensure your rights are protected.
Don’t Wait to Act
There are several possible defenses for a domestic violence charge, such as a false accusation, self-defense, or the other party exaggerating to gain an advantage in a divorce or child custody dispute. Our domestic violence attorney in Attleboro is here to investigate the circumstances behind the charge and immediately begin negotiating on your behalf and building a strong defense.
