Domestic Violence Defense Attorneys in Norwalk
Helping You Protect Your Rights in Disputes with Loved Ones
A charge of domestic violence has the capacity to destroy your life overnight. With restraining orders and possible jail time facing you, it is crucial that you get started on defending your freedom as soon as possible. At Gibbons & Gibbons, our Norwalk domestic violence lawyers offer more than 60 years of combined experience to help you protect your future and avoid a criminal conviction. We understand the importance of telling your side of the story, and we are prepared to explore all options to prevent your life from being unfairly maligned.
What Causes a Domestic Violence Charge
At Gibbons & Gibbons, we commonly hear about false accusations of domestic violence. Whether you were accused by your partner, your spouse, your child, or even a nosy neighbor or family member, your freedom should not depend on the speculation of others. We can represent you in a pre-trial investigation or in court after charges have been filed.
Before charges of domestic violence can be filed against you, an officer must come and investigate to determine whether or not there is a case for domestic violence. During this time, an attorney can represent you and possibly stop charges from being filed at all.
Defenses against Charges of Domestic Violence
If charges of domestic violence do end up being filed against you, or if you are already facing charges, Gibbons & Gibbons can provide the representation that you need. At Gibbons & Gibbons, criminal defense has been our family tradition for years. We have helped thousands of clients avoid the consequences of a conviction by ensuring their story is told and that they are fairly represented throughout their court proceedings.
Some defenses against domestic violence charges could include:
- You are not the person who committed the crime: Sometimes, people simply hear noises and feel it is their civic duty to report it, leading police officers to investigate and use their best judgment about whether or not a person is guilty. Gibbons & Gibbons can help you illustrate the circumstances of your arrest so you are not convicted of something you didn’t do.
- The allegations are deliberately false: All too often, one parent will accuse another parent of violence at the same time there is negotiation about child support or custody. If this is the case for you, it is important that you are able to protect yourself.
- Self-defense: The use of physical force to defend against someone else’s violent acts is not the same as domestic violence. Our firm has access to important to legal experts throughout the community who can strengthen your side of the story and help you prove your innocence.
If there are holes in the accusations against you, you can count on Gibbons & Gibbons to find them. By casting doubt on the domestic violence allegations, we may be able to have the charges against you dropped or reduced.
Our lawyers can defend your right to stay in your home and can fight relentlessly to prevent you from having a black mark on your record. We can fight unfair restraining orders and do everything possible to keep your family together.
