Build a Strong Defense with Help from a Committed Domestic Violence Lawyer

We take your charges seriously

When police receive a call to a residence for a domestic violence dispute, they must make an arrest if the accuser shows signs of harm or bodily injury — even if the victim refuses to press charges. Make no mistake, domestic violence is a serious crime. If you are convicted, the Court may issue a restraining order against you. At Platt, DiGiorgio & DiFabio, our domestic violence attorneys strive to provide you with the highest level of legal service. We represent individuals in Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties with the goal of building solid defenses that keep our clients out of jail and allows them to resume life as soon as possible.

What constitutes domestic violence?

For an act to be considered domestic violence, it need not occur between family members. Law enforcement may arrest housemates, roommates, spouses, siblings, parents and partners for domestic violence if accused of the following behaviors:

  • Kidnapping
  • False imprisonment
  • Stalking
  • Criminal trespassing or mischief
  • Sexual assault
  • Burglary
  • Homicide
  • Harassment
  • Lewdness
  • Threats

If you face charges for any of these actions, your life could change forever. At Platt, DiGiorgio & DiFabio, our Paoli criminal law attorneys can provide you with compassionate and understanding legal assistance.

How a domestic violence charge can affect your life

First, you need to realize that domestic violence is a crime. If you are convicted, you will have a criminal record. But then you must also realize that any type of domestic abuse is considered a violent crime. Not only can this prevent you from obtaining employment in the future, it can prevent you from owning a firearm, and it may affect your personal life.

After the incident, a No Contact Order may be issued, preventing you from being near the victim and/or the home where he or she resides. If you are convicted, a restraining order may be filed against you. This can be devastating for families and can be dismissed only if the court determines there is good cause to do so.
