An accuser does not have the power to “make the charge go away.” It is not uncommon in domestic violence cases for the accuser to “take back” what he or she previously said and/or to insist that the prosecutor should not file charges. But, once an accusation is made, the law enforcement agency and the prosecutor working on your case are in complete control. Even if the accuser claims to have lied to the police, it is within the sole discretion of the prosecutor to decide whether the charges are justified and whether there is sufficient evidence to pursue the case. Oftentimes, despite an accuser's desire to “drop the charges”, it is too late and the accused must prove their innocence.

Family law matters – White Goldstein will help

In addition to defending you in the criminal courts, a White Goldstein domestic violence defense lawyer will work closely with you, your family, and your loved ones to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

  • Child Protective Services (CPS or DCPS)
  • Emergency Protective Orders (EPO's)
  • Temporary Restraining Orders (TRO's)
  • Restraining Order Violations
  • Divorce Proceedings (as they may relate to the case)
  • Custody Battles (as they may relate to the criminal case)

Punishment for Domestic Violence Crimes

Many domestic violence offenses can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. If you are convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence, you face probation, anger management classes, and up to one year in county jail. However, if you are convicted of a felony, you could also be sentenced to years in prison, even if this is your first offense. Whether your case is dismissed, or if you are convicted and get prison, all depends on the facts of your case AND the quality of your domestic violence lawyer. At White Goldstein, our attorneys offer nothing less than the best defense for our clients.
