Bergen County Domestic Violence Defense Attorneys
Over the past decade, the state of New Jersey has increased enforcement and penalties for acts of domestic violence. Domestic violence charges are often followed by the issuance of a no contact provision which is requested by a prosecutor r and issued by a judge.
A person convicted of domestic violence may face a host of adverse consequences including:
- The loss of the right to own a firearm
- Court-ordered anger management counseling
- Placement on the domestic violence registry (if a Final Restraining Order is issued)
There is a lot at stake, so consult a lawyer immediately about how to fight this charge. If you are facing charges of domestic violence in New Jersey, an experienced criminal defense attorney at Brickfield & Donahue is ready to listen to your case.
Why Hire an Attorney for a Domestic Violence Charge?
Domestic violence cases are often difficult for prosecutors to prove because the sole witness for the prosecution, usually a spouse or significant other, is often reluctant to testify. Although the prosecution can issue a subpoena to compel a witness to testify, prosecutors know that unwilling witnesses are not always compelling.
In addition, domestic violence cases usually come down to a he said/she said dispute. If the alleged victim was under the influence of alcohol, has a history of making false statements, has a criminal record, or is otherwise lacking in credibility for any reason, the prosecution may have difficulty proving their case.
