Raleigh North Carolina Domestic Violence Lawyer

Have you been accused of domestic violence?

Domestic violence is a form of abuse which involves people who know each other, such as partners, spouses, ex spouses, parents and children, relatives or boyfriends and girlfriends. When investigating a domestic battery or spousal abuse call, police are generally required to make an arrest. Usually, it is the man that goes to jail. Once the call is made, it is nearly impossible for the other person involved to drop the charges.

Although cruel perpetrators should be punished, there have been many instances where people are accused of violence they did not commit.
