Domestic Violence

DC Domestic Violence Lawyer

In the District of Columbia, a crime is considered a crime of domestic violence when the alleged victim and the defendant have some kind of personal relationship.  This relationship can include individuals who are related, either by blood or marriage, individuals who share a residence, individuals who are married and individuals who are involved in a romantic relationship.  The most common domestic violence crimes include assault and threats.  Domestic violence convictions can have a harsh impact on an individual's immigration status and ability to lawfully possess a firearm.

In addition, when an individual is convicted of a domestic violence crime they are often ordered to stay away from the victim and the location of the offense even if that location is their home residence.  Any individual facing domestic violence charges should immediately consult and retain a skilled and experienced Washington, DC domestic violence defense attorney.
