We will take your domestic violence charge seriously

child covering ears

Domestic violence crimes are those involving family members, relatives or those who live together. A domestic offense can range from misdemeanor Battery to more serious felony offenses. However, even a misdemeanor Domestic Violence Battery carries mandatory penalties by statute. Over the past couple of decades, law enforcement officers have been enforcing the domestic violence laws with a renewed vigor. Police can make an arrest for domestic violence without a warrant as long as they believe there is probable cause to do so. Prosecutors are also coming down hard on defendants charged with these serious crimes so do not face them alone. Contact Attorney Adam Harmelin immediately following your arrest. With most crimes, time is of the essence. Adam has 20 years of experience in defending people charged with crimes of all types.

In addition to defending domestic violence crimes, Adam also represents individuals involved in restraining order litigation. Typically, a victim of alleged domestic violence will file a Temporary Restraining Order or Injunction against a defendant. Attorney Adam Harmelin will assist in defending against the restraining order as well as the criminal offense.
