Madison Domestic Violence Lawyer

When an argument becomes heated, the police often become involved. Whether they are called by a nosy neighbor or by a frightened family member, officers often feel pressured to make an arrest - just because they arrived at the scene of the altercation.

Even if the accuser chooses not to press charges, the state may decide to pursue matters on its own. The result? Criminal proceedings that the victim wouldn't have chosen and that the defendant doesn't deserve.

Taking the Right Approach to Testimony in Court

Domestic violence cases are sensitive matters. Often, one party's word is pitted against the others'. The case revolves around the victim's sensitive testimony. Your lawyer must know how to properly interact with the witness in court. She must know how to ask the right questions, and how to be simultaneously respectful and protective of your rights.
