Defenses Against Domestic Violence Charges

Facing domestic violence charges does not mean inevitable guilt. Our experienced attorneys may employ various defenses to challenge the allegations. It is essential to explore these defenses to protect your rights and reputation:

  • False Accusations: We investigate the possibility of false accusations, gathering evidence to demonstrate any inconsistencies or ulterior motives behind the charges.
  • Self-Defense: In some cases, individuals may have acted in self-defense. We examine the circumstances leading to the alleged incident to establish a valid self-defense argument.
  • Lack of Evidence: A strong defense can be built without credible evidence. We scrutinize the prosecution's case, challenging weak or unreliable evidence.
  • Mistaken Identity: Mistaken identity cases are not uncommon in domestic violence matters. We diligently investigate the facts to ensure the right individual is held accountable.

Our attorneys at Pissetzky Law LLC are committed to crafting robust defenses tailored to the unique circumstances of each case. We leverage our legal expertise to challenge the prosecution's case and protect our client's rights throughout the legal process.
