Dedicated Counselor Handles All Types of Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence charges may be brought for an act or threatened act of violence upon someone with whom the accused had an intimate relationship. This means that spouses, domestic partners, parents, stepparents, roommates, or anyone living in the same household may be accused of domestic violence crimes.

The following acts can be considered domestic violence:

  • Actual or threatened physical harm
  • Criminal harassment, such as threatening letters or phone calls
  • Stalking
  • Kidnapping
  • Pushing, hitting, slapping, choking, kicking, or biting
  • Sexual assault 
  • Rape
  • Sexual battery
  • Statutory rape

At the Law Office of J. David Munoz, we defend clients facing these serious accusations and work to make sure that your side of the story is told and understood.

Knowledgeable Lawyer Asserts Your Rights & Legal Protections

When charges are filed against you, we can guide you through the steps to protect yourself and keep your situation from getting worse. 

Our strategy is aimed to help you avoid the most serious consequences that can follow a domestic violence charge, which may include:

  • Prison sentence
  • Permanent restraining order
  • Inability to return to your house
  • Inability to see your children
  • Difficulty finding or keeping a job
  • Difficulty finding or keeping an apartment
  • Mandatory enrollment in a domestic violence treatment program
  • Inability to possess firearms
  • If an immigrant, loss of immigrant privileges

If you have received a civil domestic violence order (sometimes known as a protective order, restraining order, or injunction), we can help you contest it in court. However, it is crucial that you follow all aspects of the order until a judge allows you to do otherwise.
