We Can Help You Tell Your Side Of The Story

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 of 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, it is important to work with a domestic violence lawyer who understands the criminal justice system inside and out.

We Are On Your Side

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

You Deserve To Have Your Side Of The Story Heard

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 arraignments, the courts 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 for the time being. 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. Under no circumstances should you, a friend or a family member contact the alleged victim. This is a serious legal violation and could land you in more trouble.

While it can feel like the justice system is seeing you as guilty until proven innocent, it is important to remember that you have legal rights and our law firm will help protect them. You deserve to have your side of the story heard and a legal advocate who is on your side.
