Nobody ever imagines that it will happen, but it takes only one phone call for a personal fight to suddenly become a government matter. When the police show up at your door, it usually ends in a domestic violence arrest, and the consequences are steep. A conviction can mean that you spend time in jail, you lose your job and you are barred from many other jobs, that you can never legally possess a firearm, and that you have to pay expensive fines.
At the Atlanta, Georgia, law offices of Raymond V. Giudice, P.C., we represent people who have been accused of domestic violence or of violating a restraining order. If you are in trouble, let us help. We take immediate action by developing strategies to avoid formal prosecution or convictions in violent crime cases.
The vast majority of our domestic violence clients are the furthest thing from being hardened criminals or violent individuals. False charges, heat of the moment mistakes and overzealous prosecutors could potentially cost you jail time, fines, loss of your freedoms and the destruction of your public reputation. Do not let that happen. Call us right away and we'll handle it for you.
When an Alleged Victim Doesn't Even Want to Testify
In the heat of an argument, allegations are made. Many aren't even true. If you've been falsely accused of domestic abuse, it's likely that the loved one involved doesn't even want to testify against you in court.
So what's the fuss?
Often, the state picks up where your family leaves off. It continues to press charges, even if your family doesn't want to be involved. You need a lawyer who is willing to take on the government in order to protect your rights.
