Contact the Law Office of Tina Sypek D'Amato to learn your options and the most likely path to a successful outcome in a domestic assault criminal case.
Just because you have been charged with domestic assault, spousal abuse, child abuse, child neglect or any other type of family violence does not mean that you are powerless and without options. For example, in many cases a charge of domestic assault should have been charged as a simple breach of peace. Anger can lead to domestic violence and criminal charges of assault and battery.
Have you been served a restraining order or order for protection? Tina can effectively represent you at a hearing and help you deal with any issues that arise after the hearing. Under Connecticut law, a person who violates a protective order can be convicted of a felony.
Tina vigorously strives for the most favorable outcomes on behalf of every client she represents who has been charged with domestic assault. She is often successful in negotiating diversionary programs such as anger management programs and family violence programs in lieu of prison time or even conviction.
Tina also encourages clients to explain all the details of the case. With this knowledge, Tina can tell clients the likely steps and outcomes along the way.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN FAMILY VIOLENCE CASES
Any one can be charged with a domestic violence charge. Assault, breach of peace, disorderly conduct, sexual assault, risk of injury, and threatening are just a few. Many people are surprised that these charges can even arise from an argument, not physical violence. Domestic violence charges usually arise from circumstances when people that either live together, are related by blood or marriage or sexual partners get into an argument and things get out of hand.
Often people think that the “victim” can tell the prosecutor to drop the charges; however, once the state is involved, the complainant has no power to stop the criminal process.
When charged criminally with a domestic violence, there are several ways to avoid a criminal record. Sometimes a case can be tracked and sometime in the future, nolled. In some cases, mediation can be accomplished as both parties are involved and need some sort of help. In other cases, there are programs that can result in a dismissal after taking a certain number of classes on domestic violence. Having an experienced lawyer to help you through this process is necessary.
If you are looking for a knowledgeable lawyer and hoping to avoid a criminal record, Tina Sypek D'Amato is the best lawyer for you.
