Domestic Violence


What to Do When You’re Charged With Domestic Violence

A domestic violence charge can cause a tremendous upheaval in your life. If an Order of Protection has been issued, you may find yourself unable to get into your house, even to get clothes. You may be unable to see your children. At Pappalardo & Pappalardo, LLP, we can help you get your life back to normal.

Our firm handles every type of domestic violence case. We assist clients accused of assault, stalking, phone and email harassment, all the way to domestic violence homicide. Regardless of the alleged offense, we can help you present your best defense.

Prosecutors take domestic violence accusations very seriously. Even in cases where none of the parties involved want to press charges, you may still find yourself in court before a judge. Incidents that would not have led to charges being filed in years past are now a high priority for district attorneys.

Domestic violence accusations are a serious matter. You need an experienced attorney to help you. Our lawyers have handled many cases of this type in the 40 plus years we have been practicing criminal defense law. We understand every aspect of these cases and we can help you through this process.

We are not afraid to try a case in our criminal defense practice. While any lawyer can tell their client to plead guilty, we do the hard work and investigation to find the best solution for our clients. If a full trial is in your best interests, we will fight for your rights every step of the way.
