Not all assaults are domestic assaults, but if a defendant’s assault accusation has been categorized as domestic violence, it triggers serious consequences for accused defendants. From strict regulations on pretrial release, to the way the case is processed through the system with district attorneys and judges, these consequences can have far-reaching effects for years to come. Not only is Greenwood Law sensitive to all of these consequences and how they affect you, but we are also equipped to tackle each case’s unique circumstance.
