Possible Domestic Violence Defenses

Domestic assault cases are very rarely black-and-white. This means there is always an effective defense strategy that can be applied in every situation. But it takes experience and expertise to know what strategies to use and when to use them.

A top Clawson domestic violence defense lawyer knows how to ask the right questions to get to the truth.

Did the…

  • Alleged victim have any injuries, or is it just their word against yours?
  • Police make a lawful arrest, or were they overzealous?
  • Oakland County DA file the proper charges?
  • Arresting law enforcement officers violate your legal, civil, or Constitutional rights?

Were you…

  • Falsely accused of domestic violence?
  • Acting in self-defense?
  • The actual victim, rather than the perpetrator?
  • The subject of stereotypes or bias?

Are there…

  • Witnesses, evidence, or experts that can contradict the prosecution’s claims?
  • Inconsistencies that establish reasonable doubt?
  • Extenuating circumstances that could clear you?
  • Lesser charges that are more appropriate?

Remember, it is not the job of you or your domestic violence lawyer to prove your innocence. You are already guaranteed a presumption of innocence under the law. Rather, it is the job of the prosecutor to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

If they cannot, they lose the case.

The more holes your defense attorney can poke in the DA’s argument, the stronger your case becomes. That’s why you want the best domestic violence defense lawyers in Clawson – to raise the reasonable doubt that wins your case.
