Hire a domestic battery defense attorney who cares about your rights and your future
When you think of domestic battery, you probably think of a spouse who has been beaten black and blue. But the reality is, domestic battery is a much broader offense. Since it only requires the use of “force” against a domestic partner, domestic battery charges can apply even when there is no physical injury. Examples include pushing, slapping, hair-pulling, spitting, and even throwing a drink at a partner. When serious injuries are present, the offense may be charged as intentional infliction of corporal injury or aggravated battery instead of domestic battery.
No matter which specific statute you are charged under, the consequences of a conviction could be severe. This makes it very important to choose an experience domestic battery lawyer for your defense. At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we make an excellent choice of domestic battery attorney because we sincerely care about your future and we are fully committed to putting in all the time and effort it may take to win your case.
Possible Domestic Battery Defenses
No willful violence: If you only touched the alleged victim accidentally as opposed to willfully, you are not guilty of domestic battery. An example might be if you threw a vase at the wall during an argument and a piece of glass happened to hit your partner.
False allegations: Because domestic battery cases usually happen in the home and do not necessarily involve any visible physical injuries, these cases are typically “he-said-she-said” disputes, which are very difficult for the prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt at trial. In many cases, the allegations may be completely fabricated by one domestic partner who wants to punish the other.
Self-defense: Another defense strategy that can be very productive in domestic battery case is self-defense. You can rely on us to carefully consider this and other strategies before choosing the strategy that is best for your individual needs, given the facts of the case and your goals for its resolution.
Fortunately, you can rely on Perlmutter & Pourshalimi to get to the bottom of any false allegations as your domestic battery attorney. If you involve us in the process early enough, we may even be able to prevent false allegations from resulting in formal charges.
