Criminal defense: Domestic violence claims can wreck your world

Unfortunately, domestic violence is a sad and tragic problem in all of the United States. Personal relationships are complex, with the power to bring many emotions -- some positive and some negative -- to the surface. Love, although sweet and joyful at times, can turn reasonable people into angry and violent individuals.

With that said, sometimes domestic violence allegations have no basis in fact. In these situations, it is one person's word against another's, and Massachusetts courts take a harsh stand against this form of violence. Defendants need legal assistance early on in a domestic violence case. In many instances, a criminal defense lawyer is the defendant's best hope to overcome these allegations.

As defense attorneys, we know how the state's laws revolving around domestic violence function. Our lawyers have seen many innocent defendants face serious consequences after a conviction on these charges. We want you to know that it is possible to prevail in these cases, especially if you are innocent.

Your accuser and his or her legal team have the burden of proof, just as it is in all criminal cases. A skilled lawyer can use time-tested strategies to ensure that the prosecutor provides proof to support your accuser's claim. As you might expect, when no proof exists, there is a very good chance that the state will abandon its case against you.

What we hope you learn from this blog post is that you deserve the opportunity to defend yourself against domestic violence accusations. Reach out for the help you need and work with your lawyer to build a strong defense. Please continue studying our firm's website and blog for more information.
