You Deserve To Have Your Side Of The Story Heard In A Domestic Violence Case

For many who face charges of domestic violence, this is the first time they have ever been in trouble with the law. Some are the victims of wrongful accusations from a bitter spouse. Many acted only in self-defense. And others have indeed made a terrible mistake in the heat of an argument.

Regardless of your specific circumstances, your future is at risk. The consequences for a conviction for spousal abuse or child abuse can vary greatly depending on the severity of any physical injuries and any previous record of domestic abuse. You may face jail time, probation, loss of parental rights and restraining orders. Because there is so much at stake in a criminal case, it is important to work with an experienced domestic violence lawyer in the Kalamazoo area who understands the criminal justice system inside and out.

We Are On Your Side

At G. M. Gabry Law, we are here to help you through this difficult time and help you move forward. After the alleged incident of domestic violence, it is important to contact our law firm right away. Do not explain or attempt to defend your actions to the police; they will give anything you say to the state's attorney to use as ammunition against you.

In many cases, the prosecution has little more to go on than the word of the victim, but that may not stop it from aggressively proceeding. In addition, during arraignment, the court will usually assume the worst of the accused. This means ordering a physical separation of involved parties. So if you and the alleged victim live together, you may be forced out of your home. This can also mean you may not have access to your children. However, our law firm can protect against this action at the arraignment or help you after the fact if an order has already been handed down.
