Misdemeanor Domestic Violence

Considering the long-term consequences of domestic violence charges, whether at the misdemeanor or felony level, you should speak with an experienced domestic violence lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your legal options. Please contact Matthew R. Hoff to schedule a free initial consultation following an arrest for misdemeanor domestic violence.

Extensive Experience Defending Felony and Misdemeanor Domestic Violence Cases

In many instances of domestic violence, arrests are made based on nothing more than one person’s word against another’s with scant (if any) physical evidence. Moreover, even if there are no injuries, the police still can charge an individual with a domestic violence offense.

Once the Law is Involved, Domestic Violence Charges are No Longer Private

Often the accused is arrested on the spot and taken to jail even if the accuser withdraws their previous statement that lead to the arrest. In spite of the unwillingness by the witness to cooperate, the prosecution will often proceed to trial. This is generally the norm, not the exception. Let me assist you in telling the prosecutor their thinking is flawed.

My ability to recognize trends and extrapolate weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case has led to multiple dismissals of felony and misdemeanor domestic violence offenses in the Municipal, District and Superior courts.
