Having any conviction on your record has consequences, but domestic violence convictions have additional penalties. For example, if you are convicted of even a misdemeanor domestic violence offense, you will lose all rights to possess firearms for life. You may be unable to see your children or excluded from your house. Depending on the specifics of the charges, you could receive a jail or prison sentence as well if it’s a felony.
Colby Kanouse and myself work together with my legal team to defend people against domestic violence and related violent dangerous crime charges. I know that a domestic violence conviction can affect the rest of your life. You can trust us to examine the facts of the case and deal with the prosecutor to ensure that you are not overcharged or over-penalized. When necessary, we will take your case to trial to protect your rights.

If an order of protection is taken out against you, you may be ordered to leave your home and stay away from the accuser and his or her children, including your own kids. Violating an order of protection may result in jail time so it is important that you speak with an attorney if you are arrested for a suspected violation.
