Domestic Violence
Among various criminal charges, domestic violence is not only common but also one of the hardest for prosecutors and the public to accept and forgive. These allegations are more prominent than many other crimes. Many domestic violence cases are complex and multifaceted. Facing such charges, you might find yourself at a disadvantage from the start, making it extremely difficult to defend yourself and, consequently, challenging to fight for justice and clear your name. Kerb Law Group boasts a team of experienced domestic violence defense attorneys. We will provide vigorous defense on your behalf. Given the substantial negative impact a domestic violence conviction can have on your future, we recommend hiring a domestic violence attorney from Kerb Law Group for your defense.

Constituents of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence typically occurs among family members, including spouses, ex-spouses, cohabitants, parents, children, siblings, and other intimate or familial relationships. Forms of violence include physical abuse, threats of violence, sexual violence, and economic control. It is not limited to direct physical harm but also encompasses intimidation, mental oppression, and controlling behavior.

Domestic violence can be a one-time incident or a series of repeated or ongoing actions. Not all instances require multiple occurrences; a single instance of severe violence can also constitute domestic violence. In Texas, there is a mechanism for protective orders in cases of domestic violence. Victims threatened by such acts can apply to the court for a protective order to ensure their safety.

Consequences of Domestic Violence

Charges of domestic violence can have a profound impact on you and your family. If these charges are substantiated, they can negatively affect your life. You may face penalties such as fines, community service, mandatory educational programs, and even imprisonment. Additionally, a criminal record for domestic violence could jeopardize your green card eligibility, hinder your ability to become a U.S. citizen, and could even lead to deportation. Therefore, choosing an experienced domestic violence attorney is crucial. Once convicted of domestic violence, finding employment can become highly challenging, as many employers are hesitant to hire individuals with a history of domestic violence.

When to Hire an Attorney?
It is advisable to seek an attorney’s help when you are arrested, under investigation, or suspect that you might be charged with a crime. Seeking legal advice early on helps to protect your rights and provides proper guidance throughout the legal process. Even if you have not been formally charged or accused, an attorney can help you understand your rights, assist in communicating with law enforcement, and offer advice to protect your interests when necessary. For example, if you are accused of a felony, hiring an attorney before the case is formally charged can be crucial. At this stage, an attorney can intervene during the grand jury phase, sometimes preventing you from being charged. In criminal proceedings, the earlier you hire an attorney, the better. In early consultations, an attorney can offer more options and appropriate strategies for your case to maximize your rights.

Facing criminal charges, especially felonies, signifies potentially severe consequences. A conviction can lead to substantial fines, unemployment, imprisonment, and even deportation. The accused must choose a professional attorney. Only those with extensive experience in criminal defense can achieve the best possible outcomes for you. Often, selecting an excellent attorney could lead to acquittal or dismissal of charges, allowing you to leave the courtroom satisfied. However, an acquittal or dismissal of charges is unlikely if the prosecution holds vital evidence. Therefore, the defendant should select the best course of action under the guidance of their attorney.

Some attorneys might claim, ‘I will confront the prosecutor,’ but there are more effective approaches than this. In many cases, negotiating and collaborating with the prosecutor proves to be a superior strategy. At such times, only an attorney with extensive experience, comprehensive knowledge, and adept skills can secure the best possible outcome for you.
