Domestic Violence Lawyer in Oakland County
In many domestic violence situations there are no witnesses other than the two individuals, the accuser and the accused. In order for the accused to be charged there does not need to be any physical evidence of harm, just a complaint may be enough in some cases. The accuser's statement that he or she felt threatened by the defendant and was or is in fear of injury can be sufficient for an arrest. An experienced domestic violence lawyer understands that preparing an effective defense depends upon independently gathering factual and full information which can be used to challenge the prosecution's evidence, witnesses and procedures. Attorney Daniel D. Hajji has a goal and that is to achieve the best possible outcome for his client's interest in mind.
Domestic violence charges do not go away easily. Even if the accuser later regrets making the accusation or tries to undo pressing charges, prosecutors take a serious view of domestic violence complaints and generally prefer to proceed with prosecution in these cases despite the accuser's insistence to drop the charge. Depending upon the type of charge, conviction may result in probation or jail time, anger management education, a permanent record of the conviction and more. It may be possible to resolve your case without going to trial; however it is important to know that when it is necessary you are represented by a criminal defense lawyer who is prepared to aggressively defend you in court.
