Representation Against Any Charge

Many people think that domestic violence only involves physical spousal abuse. On the contrary, Michigan law defines domestic violence as the threat or act of:

  • Physical assault
  • Sexual abuse
  • Economical abuse
  • Emotional or mental abuse

Someone could face charges of domestic abuse against a spouse, as well as other family members or cohabitants. The penalties for these charges vary, from jail time to considerable fines.

Skilled Domestic Violence Defense

Charges of domestic violence are often accompanied by restraining orders. These could possibly limit clients' access to their home and family. Our attorneys provide comprehensive defense against temporary and permanent restraining orders.
