What’s at stake in a domestic violence defense case

Massachusetts mandatory arrest policies require law enforcement to make an arrest if they have cause to suspect any violence has occurred when responding to a call about a domestic dispute, even if the dispute has calmed down by the time of their arrival. As a result, police are trained to make arrests in a majority of their responses to calls about domestic violence. 

Intimate partner and family violence is treated seriously by Massachusetts prosecutors. After an arrest, the accused can expect prosecutors to act aggressively to convict them, even in the event a witness to the supposed offense decides not to prosecute their loved one, and even using hearsay and 911 call transcripts as evidence against the accused. A conviction can have very serious repercussions for an accused person’s reputation and future, which is why we believe it’s imperative you hire a domestic violence defense attorney who will defend your case aggressively.

In Massachusetts, there are multiple levels of charges for domestic violence ranging from misdemeanor to felony offenses. Penalties range from two to 10 years in prison with hefty fines, not to mention the resulting reputational damage that can play out in various ways, causing harm to multiple areas of a person’s life for many years. Proven allegations of domestic violence can be used in divorce proceedings, custody battles and other situations, such as employment, in which a person’s reputation might be in question. Hiring an experienced domestic violence defense attorney is a matter of protecting your future.
