Hiring Jeff Kennedy turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Mr. Kennedy was able to have my case dismissed. Yes, outright dismissal of the charge!

We did exactly as Jeff instructed and the case was dismissed. There are no words to explain how happy we are with his performance.

Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

How Do You Fight a Domestic Violence Charge?

Domestic violence is a very serious charge. Sometimes, the prosecution in a domestic violence case decides to press forward with charges based on incomplete evidence or a rapid police interview. This isn’t good for anyone, and especially the person facing a charge on spurious evidence.

Fortunately, regardless of the violent crime charges you’re facing, you’re entitled to a robust legal defense—and it’s no different when you’ve been accused of domestic violence. Contacting a defense lawyer as soon as possible can help you clear your name. Read on if you’re wondering how to fight a domestic violence charge.

Ways You Can Fight a Domestic Violence Charge

When a prosecutor decides to press domestic violence charges, they are ideally doing so on the basis of purported evidence. As is the case with many criminal charges, the facts in a domestic violence case can be distorted or disputed based on their representation in court.

Some key evidence that the prosecution can use in a domestic violence case includes:

However, the above evidence only tells a part of the story. The role of a defense attorney is to introduce doubt into the overall picture of the evidence. If done successfully, this can achieve two things: It can get a prosecutor to reconsider, or it can lead a jury to acquit the defendant of all charges.

An experienced attorney can use any of the following tactics to introduce doubt into the overall picture of the evidence:

  • Pointing out inconsistencies in the narrative
  • Discussing where evidence may contradict itself
  • Revealing the biases or hidden motivations of the other party
  • Proving the implausibility of the story
  • Proving that the arresting officers made procedural errors, such as not reading your Miranda Rights

Contacting a lawyer as soon as you’ve been detained can give them more time to analyze your case and determine the best defense strategy available to you.
