Minneapolis Domestic Violence Defense Attorney & Assault Lawyer
Domestic violence charges are difficult because they involve family or a significant other. The matter becomes even more complicated when minor children are involved because it can become an issue of whether you can have a relationship with your children if you are convicted of domestic violence. When facing this charge, it is important to have a Minneapolis domestic violence defense attorney defending your rights and representing your interests.
At Segal Defense, P.A., Charles Segal will work diligently on your case to obtain the best possible outcome. His one-on-one approach and close attention to detail will result in a strategic defense.
Aggressive Domestic Violence Defense
A simple accusation of domestic violence can result in a domestic violence charge, especially if there is any evidence that the act may have occurred. This can then result in an order for protection, which prevents you from being able to be near the alleged victim and any minor children.
Defending yourself against an order for protection or Domestic Abuse No Contact Order (DANCO) is a completely different matter and is handled in another court. However, the alleged victim can obtain the order without you being notified, which means you will receive notification after it is in place. You can challenge the order, especially when it is keeping you away from your home and any minor children.
It’s very important to challenge the order instead of violating it because a violation can result in a criminal charge. If convicted, the penalty is a $1,000 fine and 90 days in jail. Multiple violations can lead to a felony conviction, which has much stricter penalties. An order for protection violation charge is separate from the initial domestic violence charge.
Charles Segal will give you the guidance you need throughout your domestic violence case and the order for protection case so that you can move on with your life.
