We Will Aggressively Fight To Keep You Out of Jail
Wake County, North Carolina, Domestic Assault Defense Lawyer
If you or someone you love has been charged with a domestic violence offense, there is one important thing you should know: The prosecutor is often more interested in getting your family the help you need than they are in throwing you in jail. At Roberts Law Group, PLLC, we work effectively with local prosecutors to get our clients into effective anger management and domestic violence counseling programs that will keep you out of jail. In many cases, you can avoid having a conviction on your record by completing an authorized domestic violence program. That's what is best for you, for your family and for society.
Should Somebody Have Been Charged?
If you are the alleged victim of domestic abuse and now want the charges dropped, it's not always so easy. The police are nearly always forced to place someone under arrest when they respond to a domestic argument, and the DA is obligated to prosecute.
Attorney Patrick Roberts is a former prosecutor for New Hanover County, North Carolina, where he received valuable special training in handling domestic violence cases. We understand how prosecutors approach domestic assault cases, and we use our experience to prepare a strong defense.
- Assault on a female charges
- Chapter 50B rulings
- Violations of no-contact orders
- Protective order violations
- Restraining order violations
Domestic Violence Always Has a Root Cause
Most domestic abuse cases have a root cause that can be traced to substance abuse or some degree of mental illness. We have experience working with social service agencies to help our clients get into substance abuse or professional counseling programs instead of jail.
