& Experienced Criminal Defense
What should you do if you are arrested for domestic violence in Northville, Michigan?
It probably all happened so quickly – you got into an argument with your partner or a family member, tempers flared and things escalated, and the next thing you knew, the police were at your door.
The first and most important thing you must do if you are arrested is exercise your legal right to remain silent. If you say ANYTHING incriminating, it WILL be used against you by the Wayne County District Attorney.
Even if you were acting in self-defense, were falsely accused, or the police are encouraging you to “clear things up”, never make any statements without your attorney present. If the police were too hasty and misread the situation, your domestic violence criminal defense lawyer will straighten things out.
Next, exercise another Constitutional right – your right to legal counsel. To beat domestic violence charges, you need a legal specialist with experience handling these types of cases – a Northville, Michigan, domestic violence criminal defense lawyer.

Per George Mason University, women are much more likely to make false DV allegations against men than the other way around, especially in those cases where the woman is the perpetrator. 73% of men who are the victims of female-perpetrated domestic violence report being threatened with false accusations.
While there is a misconception that men are nearly always the aggressors and that women are overwhelmingly victimized, studies reveal that domestic violence occurs nearly equally to both sexes – to 54% of women and 46% of men.
Why do all of these statistics matter?
Far too often, unaware police officers rush to judgment and make the decision to arrest you based on their own biases, rather than the facts.
