Strategic, Domestic Violence Abuse Defense

domestic violence against a man who needs a domestic violence lawyerAny domestic violence allegation or dispute can have immediate consequences and a long-term impact on your rights.

If you have been accused of domestic violence or are currently under investigation for abuse, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.

At Swango Law, P.C., I provide informed, strategic counsel focused on confronting domestic violence allegations and successfully resolving disputes on behalf of my clients.

Civil and Criminal Liability in Domestic Abuse Cases

An allegation of domestic violence will not only affect you criminally, resulting in a restraining order and criminal charges, it could also impact your civil rights, especially if you are facing divorce.

A conviction could mean your loss of rights to carry a weapon, a particular problem for military members who could also face discharge. A conviction could also affect your rights to custody and access to your own home.

In Virginia, once a spouse has filed a complaint, the charges cannot be dropped. There is zero-tolerance in these cases, so you need a skilled attorney who can reduce the charges and penalties in your case.

I am a Virginia Beach domestic violence attorney experienced with cases involving:

  • False allegations
  • Divorce and domestic abuse
  • Child abuse
  • Spousal abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Sexual abuse/rape
  • PTSD and allegations of abuse
  • Weapons offenses

Domestic Violence in the Military

Military members accused of domestic violence are often disciplined even before there is a finding of guilt. If you are accused of domestic violence, you could be restricted to the barracks for a period of time. In some cases, defendants are not even able to consult with an attorney to get a non-guilty finding and are, by default, charged with domestic violence.

If you or someone you love in the military is involved in a domestic dispute, you need immediate advocacy and aggressive defense by a highly experienced and leading lawyer in this complex area of law.
