We immediately begin collecting relevant evidence to build your defense and protect your rights.
Domestic Assault in the College Community
Domestic violence, abuse, and other related allegations are not limited to married couples or live-in partnerships. Many cases of assault or abuse will arise in the college community, having an immediate and long-term impact on all accused parties. If you have recently been accused of domestic violence or are under investigation, you need to have a clear understanding of your rights and how a conviction could impact your future.
Once a domestic abuse claim is reported to the police, it is not up to the victim to remove those charges, even if they were based on a false allegation. You need an experienced advocate to examine the facts of your case and develop a strategic defense to minimize charges and penalties in your case.
Our State College domestic violence defense attorney is experienced in cases involving:
- Domestic abuse
