Defenses Against Domestic Violence Charges

Mounting an effective defense against domestic violence charges requires a thorough understanding of the law and the ability to navigate complex legal proceedings. Our legal team at John Malek Law Group has successfully employed various defenses to challenge domestic violence charges, including:

  • Self-Defense: Demonstrating that the accused acted in self-defense can be a valid defense strategy.
  • False Accusations: Establishing that the allegations are false or maliciously made can undermine the prosecution's case.
  • Lack of Evidence: Challenging the sufficiency of the evidence presented by the prosecution is a common defense strategy.
  • Wrongful Arrest: Contesting the legality of the arrest and collecting evidence can be critical in building a solid defense.
  • Mistaken Identity: Showing that the accused was not the perpetrator of the alleged domestic violence can be a powerful defense.
