Baton Rouge Domestic Violence Attorney
Over 15 Years Serving Clients throughout Louisiana
Domestic violence charges can upend a person's life overnight. A mere accusation will likely result in a no-contact order or a temporary restraining order, making it difficult for the accused to carry on with their normal life. If convicted, penalties can include fines, jail time, and a revocation of your Second Amendment rights. At Dewey & Braud Law, LLC, a Baton Rouge domestic violence attorney can help you protect your freedom.
What to Do After Being Charged
For most people accused of domestic violence, the first thing to happen is a protective order. In order to protect alleged victims in these situations, judges are quick to sign court orders that put distance better defendants and victims, sometimes putting defendants out of their homes and possibly out of contact with any of their loved ones.
These orders are serious, and violating them could have serious negative impacts on your future. Rather than trying to navigate these challenges yourself, let a Baton Rouge domestic violence attorney represent you.
Our team can help you:
- Work with law enforcement to recover your belongings
- Petition for your release from a protective order
- Modify protective orders to allow for needed contact
- Tell your side of the story and fight the charges against you
Fighting Criminal Charges
There are many examples of people who falsely accuse others of domestic violence. In some cases, they come out with the truth after someone gets arrested for their claims, but this doesn't mean the charges will automatically be dropped. The state can proceed with the charges without the victim's cooperation, and each jurisdiction is different on their procedure for "drop charge requests." Some must be done in writing, others in open court, and sometimes a fee is charged.
Dewey & Braud Law, LLC can help you navigate the law and get the best possible outcome for your situation. We have a reputation for helping our clients obtain favorable case resolutions by negotiating better charges or, in some cases, getting them dropped altogether.
