Don’t Let Domestic Charges Ruin Your Life
Accusations of domestic violence strongly affect all members of the family. In some cases, some accusations are true, while the others can also be false. These false claims can be the most hurtful of all. It is the job of domestic violence lawyers to make sure that these accusations are false and to make sure that they do not hurt you or your family.
What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence is when someone inflicts physical—and often traumatic—damage to their spouse, partner, or family member. The biggest problem with these charges is proving whether or not the accusations are true when there is a lack of evidence.
A Woman’s View
In a domestic violence issue, the attention is usually turned to the woman. 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence from their partner, compared to only 1 in 7 men who will experience the same. Because of the number of women that experience domestic violence is much higher than men, the attention shifts towards females more than males. This makes it very difficult when a woman falsely accuses a man of abuse. When a woman suggests you carry aggressive behavior towards her, it is difficult to break the image of an aggressive male figure. Worst of all, when forced to fight for your own freedom, it is hard not to show yourself in court as either angry or aggressive. It is our job, as domestic violence lawyers, to help break away from that image.
A Need For Men’s Rights
Why is it so difficult to for men to break away from this recurring image of anger and violence when accused in a court of law? Oftentimes, there is a bias against men accused of domestic violence and a lack of men’s rights surrounding this issue. A girlfriend, wife, or any other female figure can falsely accuse you and press charges. This can hurt your reputation and even your lifestyle. The larger problem is that even if you can prove that this is false, it is very hard to go back to your previous lifestyle. I do everything I can to make sure my clients are treated innocent until proven guilty, to the highest degree of the law.
Why We Need Domestic Violence Lawyers
Many times, an angry partner or spouse will claim they were a victim of domestic violence in order to have you removed from the premises. In these cases, they do not realize the severity or long-term effects that these claims can hold for you. This can cause you to lose your job, have difficulty finding another job, and even to establish visitation rights with your children. In brief, all of this can cause a disruption to your family.
If you are innocent, your domestic violence lawyer has a duty not only to drop the charges but to get your life and reputation back to where it was before. It is our job not only to prove that these accusations are false but to fight for your rights and show that you are not the convict or felon she claims you are. We do not rely on a story of “he said versus what she said”, but only the cold hard facts. By consulting investigators, interviewing neighbors or witnesses, collecting medical information, and determining the background of the alleged victim, we work hard to get the story straight. After all, it’s your life and your rights on the line.
A good domestic violence attorney will make sure that your charges are dropped. A great attorney will make sure that not only your charges are dropped, but that your life goes back to how it was. Examples could be fighting to see your children or trying to keep your job. It is my job to make sure that you can go back to a normal lifestyle without giving up your rights.The truth has to be told.
How Can David Hunter Help?
It’s okay to feel scared and confused, but you do not have to go through this alone. I have been in the business for over 25 years. I understand what it takes in order to have a successful case. As mentioned before, there are ways to distinguish between a good attorney from a great attorney. A great domestic violence attorney knows what to do to fight for a case and to provide evidence to drop charges and keep you from having a difficult lifestyle.
Most attorneys will consult investigators to gather information from neighbors and witnesses, collect medical information, and even a background on the victim. Information can be helpful when deciding on whether or not the case should continue or dropped. A great attorney, however, will go just a little further to make sure that your side of the story gets told. My job as a great attorney is to collect information to help tell your side and create a strong defense for your charges.
