In 2020, domestic violence has increased in the Milwaukee metro area with nearly half of all homicides related to domestic or family violence this year.
While many have expressed concerns that stress related to the shutdowns has resulted in the uptick of domestic violence issues, domestic violence has been a serious problem in the Milwaukee metro area and the rest of the country for some time.
When you face domestic violence charges, securing skilled legal representation is crucial to achieve a favorable outcome, which may include a dismissal or a reduction in charges.
There are a number of strategies an experienced attorney may employ such as filing a legal motion to dismiss, a motion to suppress illegally obtained evidence, and other motions to further limit the liability of their client.
Your attorney will prepare a comprehensive package demonstrating your good character, your lack of a serious criminal record and illuminate all extenuating circumstances surrounding the case to demonstrate that you do not deserve to be sent to jail or be given a permanent criminal record.
By reviewing the facts presented by prosecution, gathering pertinent documents, and finding evidence that a prosecutor is either unwilling or unable to discover, your attorney can fight against the charges you face.
Hiring an attorney experienced in defending those charged with domestic violence crimes, who has worked in the court alongside prosecutors and judges who will play a role in deciding your case, can make all the difference in your defense.
