Merrillville Attorneys Defend You Against Domestic Violence Allegations
Ready to stand with you in Lake County
All relationships have tough times and arguments that no outsider could ever really completely understand. We know that it’s complicated. We understand that people get upset when the things they care about most are at stake.
At The Law Office of Weiss, Schmidgall and Hires, P.C. our experienced Merrillville criminal defense lawyers are ready to stand with you. We know how to protect your life against the consequences that domestic abuse charges in Indiana can lob upon it.
Protecting your rights against domestic abuse charges
Our domestic violence attorneys know how severe the consequences can be if your rights aren’t protected. Misdemeanor or felony charges may threaten you with jail time and heavy fines. A protective order or “no contact” order could lock you out of your home and separate you from your children. Your standing in the community or with a divorce judge could be compromised. It’s a heavy toll, but you don’t have to stand against it alone.
Experienced defenders in criminal and family court
We’ve been defending good people against criminal charges for more than ten years. When it comes to domestic abuse allegations, we’ve found that it’s important to:
- Consider the source — Some accusers have a history of lying or misrepresenting why, how or even what actually happened. We believe in justice, and there’s no justice when criminal prosecution is used as a sword against an innocent person.
- Investigate the facts — The best way to challenge your accuser’s version of events is to have objective facts that support you. We get reliable information and use it to build you a strong defense.
- Avoid criminal sanctions — A conviction means a permanent criminal record that will affect your future job and life prospects. We work to get you past this incident without the permanent mark a criminal conviction can leave.
- Protect your children — Indiana’s family courts pay close attention to domestic abuse charges when determining child custody. We know that losing your children is unacceptable, and we’ll work in both criminal and family court to keep that from happening.
