I provide guidance and protection to people throughout the Indianapolis area.

What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is a physical act of violence against someone you live with, someone you are in a relationship with or someone you used to be in a relationship with. Those who fall into this category are usually family members, domestic partners, current spouses, former spouses and roommates.

Defending Against Abuse Allegations

When you are facing domestic violence allegations, the attorney you choose to work with is very important. Your attorney should be prepared to build an aggressive defense to protect your freedom and your livelihood. As your lawyer, I will consider all possibilities when building your defense, including:

  • The allegations were made up in an effort gain leverage in your divorce or child custody matter.
  • You were acting in self defense.
  • The victim's injuries were not caused by you.

Domestic violence is often a he-said-she-said situation. However, juries often sympathize with the victim, which is why building an aggressive defense is so important. A domestic violence accusation does not have to ruin your life. I am ready to protect you.
