Domestic Violence

Been charged with domestic violence? Fight for your freedom with the help of a domestic violence attorney based in Philadelphia.

In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, prosecuting attorneys take charges of domestic violence very seriously, even when the original accuser retracts their accusations or decides that they no longer want to press charges. The Commonwealth will usually continue to pursue the charges, which puts anyone who is facing them under serious threat.

Most people who are charged with domestic violence are honest, hardworking citizens with families and children. They may have been falsely accused in an effort to manipulate or control them, or they may have simply had an isolated lapse in judgement and acted in a way that they deeply regret. Unfortunately, none of these things usually matter in court when you are being tried for domestic violence.

  • Spousal abuseĀ
