Domestic Violence

Conviction of a domestic violence charge comes with many life changing consequences. Potential penalties for a conviction include:

  • Up to 11 months 29 days in jail for a misdemeanor charge; greater than one year for a felony charge
  • Probation
  • Loss of right to bear arms
  • Fines
  • Anger management / Domestic Abuse classes

Sometimes things get out of hand, and things aren’t what they seem from those looking in from the outside. Not only will a conviction of domestic violence result in one or more of the consequences above, it will also tarnish your name for the rest of your life.

Those who access your background for any reason (including for employment or housing) will see the conviction and perhaps frown upon you or deny your request. Perhaps your situation isn’t what it seems; perhaps a simple misunderstanding took place. Do you want to face these life changing consequences that stay with you for life?

Sam provided exactly the help I needed. He always kept an open line of communication and provided me with updates. My experience was as stress-free as I could’ve asked for thanks to his knowledge and ability, combined with his professional and courteous demeanor. If I were ever to need help again, I’d come straight to Sam.
