Domestic Violence Defense Lawyers in Phoenix, AZ
Exposing False & Exaggerated Allegations
The relationships we have with our family members and loved ones can be challenging to deal with at times, resulting in verbal arguments or even physical altercations. At times, law enforcement may be called to the scene and an arrest will result. In other scenarios, domestic violence allegations may be made against a person based on exaggerated or completely fabricated claims.
If an act of abuse or assault is classified as domestic violence, you may face imprisonment and fines, as well as the following:
- Loss of child custody or visitation rights
- Loss of the right to own/possess a firearm
- Mandatory domestic violence classes (which you must pay for)
If your freedom is on the line because of domestic violence accusations or charges, you need a strong ally to defend your interests. Law enforcement personnel and prosecutors are going to do everything in their power to put you behind bars. Your only chance at avoiding maximum penalties is to have a qualified attorney fighting in your corner, and our domestic violence defense attorneys at Maria Jones Law Firm are prepared to provide the level of criminal defense representation you need. We have offices in Tucson and Phoenix and represent defendants across Arizona.
Defending Clients Against Domestic Abuse Charges
In Arizona, domestic violence is a type of enhancement for other criminal offenses. This means that, although there is no specific crime of “domestic violence,” a crime may be classified as such if it involves an alleged victim who is in a “domestic relationship” with the alleged abuser.
The following are examples of domestic relationships:
- Persons in a current or former romantic relationship
- Persons living together
- Family members
- Parents of a shared child
The following are examples of the types of crimes that may be subject to domestic violence enhancements:
- Physical assault
- Sexual assault
- Emotional abuse
- Violation of a protective order
