A More Progressive Approach to Legal Representation

Defending against false accusations of domestic violence

Every day, men and women all across the nation are subjected to domestic violence. It is easy to assume that a person charged with domestic violence committed a crime. However, this is not always the case. Some people will falsely accuse their loved ones of domestic violence during an argument or to get back at them for something they did. Unfortunately, even the mere accusation of domestic violence can negatively impact someone's life. Domestic violence charges can damage your reputation in the community and make it difficult to get a job.

The legal penalties of a domestic violence conviction in Tennessee are similar to other assault convictions, in that you may face fines and jailtime. However, domestic violence charges carry additional penalties that other misdemeanor charges don't have.

A domestic violence assault is also considered a violation of the Federal Lautenberg Amendment. This means that if you are convicted of domestic violence, you will lose your right to own or possess firearms and face additional penalties. Being convicted domestic violence can not only make your job search difficult, but it can actually prevent you from working in certain fields, such as law enforcement.

If you are facing domestic violence charges for an assault you didn't commit, you deserve to have a proper defense in place to avoid these serious penalties. The best way to handle false accusations of domestic violence is to present a strong defense.
