  1. Evidence of an injury
  2. A witness statement from a relative, child, spouse, cohabitant or someone you are in a relationship with

Defense After a Domestic Violence Arrest

Domestic violence is a very serious crime and there are multiple agencies available to assist battered victims; however, domestic violence is also an incredibly powerful allegation that is often misused in family law cases. Each year, hundreds of individuals are wrongfully accused of domestic violence by a spouse or significant other who is looking to gain an upper hand in a divorce, child custody or civil proceeding. In other cases, the alleged abuser was acting in self-defense or did not actually inflict harm upon the supposed victim. Some of the defenses that can be made in your domestic violence case are:

  • Justification
    • Discipline purposes
  • Self Defense
  • Medical Purpose
  • Mental disease
  • False Allegation

Each domestic violence case is as unique as the individuals involved and deserves a personalized defense, which is why you need to work with the Law Office of Kevin P. O'Donnell.
