Elgin, Illinois Domestic Battery Defense Lawyers
Lawyers Protecting Clients Against Domestic Battery Charges in McHenry and Kane Counties
In the State of Illinois, domestic battery carries heavy penalties for those convicted. At Pucci Pirtle, we understand the impact that a domestic battery charge can have on your life and your future. We also know that there are two sides to every story and that domestic matters are not always what they seem. Our attorneys work hard to defend your rights, protect you from false allegations, and aggressively mitigate your charges to minimize their impact or have your charges dismissed.
Domestic Battery Charges
Domestic battery is defined as knowingly or intentionally causing bodily harm to a family or household member, or making physical contact in an insulting or provoking nature. An admission of doing so, even in self-defense, could be considered an admission of guilt. Do not let this happen to you.
We work with clients facing all sorts of legal issues, including those being wrongfully charged with domestic battery during a divorce or allocation of parental responsibilities (child custody) case. We comb through the details, look for any discrepancies, and gather evidence that can be leveraged to your benefit in the courtroom. Depending on your circumstances, and the events that led to your arrest, we may even be able to prove that the altercation was fabricated and never occurred, or that the act was committed in self-defense. Whatever the complexities in your domestic battery charges case, we will fight aggressively to protect you, your future, and your family.
Domestic Violence and Family Law
Entirely too often, we see clients who are only facing charges because of a bitter divorce or custody battle. Maybe they had a heated argument with the opposing party that got a little out of hand, or maybe they did nothing wrong at all and their spouse or opposing party is using domestic violence accusations as a way to get a leg up in the pending litigation. Whatever the case, their allegations arose, not out of fear, but out of a desire for revenge, a bigger settlement, or more parenting time with the children. These cases require extreme diligence and aggressive action, not only because of their criminal implications, but because a conviction could keep you away from your family, cause you to lose part of your share in a divorce settlement, or otherwise have a negative impact on your family law case.
