Domestic violence charges often come with several forms of evidence. In many cases, there is proof of physical abuse. This might also come with claims of emotional abuse and financial abuse. All of this can be very difficult to fight against, but your defense must do just that. We understand that this might be hard for you to think about, but we are here to help you get your defense together and present it to the court.
Because you need to address different types of issues, you need to think about what can introduce doubt into the mind of the jury members. There are times when you might not be able to refute that the victim had bruising, but you might be able to explain the bruises. No matter what, you have to make sure that you are being fully truthful.
Some aspects of the case might come down to your word against the victim’s word. In these cases, we need to find out if there is anything that will back up your side of the story. For example, maybe you didn’t want the victim to have access to a bank account because he or she was irresponsible with money and often spent money that was earmarked for bills.
Ultimately, we need to look into the individual circumstances that are present in your case. This can help us find out what points we can use in the defense. It can also give us an idea of where we need to look for evidence that could support the statements that you want us to focus on when we prepare your case.
