Most domestic violence cases are “he-said she-said” matters that occur in the privacy of somebody’s home and are not witnessed by other people. Because of this, there can be some doubt as to who is telling the truth, whether the alleged victim was actually the primary aggressor rather than the accused, and whether the defendant was acting in self-defense. Having witnesses or evidence in the form of videos or photographs can either help or hurt the defendant in a case. If the evidence or witnesses will make it more difficult for the District Attorney to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt then we regularly encourage clients to exercise their right to a jury trial if the facts and evidence weigh in their favor. We are passionate about domestic violence cases and our attorneys have had a great deal of success in securing dismissals in domestic violence cases before trial and have successfully defended our clients at trial resulting in acquittals (NOT GUILTY).
