Arrested for a domestic violence offense in Oakland or Macomb County?
Call (248) 534-4559
Domestic violence is considered a pattern of behavior that involves controlling another individual through emotional, physical or sexual abuse. This crime is taken seriously by police and they are quick to make an arrest even if an accusation was wrongfully made during a heated moment. Even if the alleged victim revokes their statement, that does not drop the charges against the accused. Being accused of domestic violence not only puts you at risk of facing serious criminal charges and imprisonment, it also threatens your relationship with your family.
Do not hesitate to contact our firm at (248) 534-4559 for aggressive defense.
