Bowie Assault Defense Lawyers

When police arrive for a domestic violence call, someone usually leaves the home in handcuffs. The idea of one family member being abusive to other members of the household is offensive to most people. Laws against domestic assault today are quite severe as a result, and criminal charges are almost always filed.

Domestic violence typically involves two separate sets of charges: one civil and one criminal. The civil charges lead to a temporary order of protection keeping you away from the petitioner/plaintiff. This likely means you can't go home, or see your children. The criminal charge is usually assault.

Domestic violence and assault charges are painful to endure, and our lawyers at Reinstein, Glackin, Patterson & Herriott, LLC, are sensitive to that fact. We invite you to call and describe your situation. Our attorneys can provide strong representation for you or your another family member.

Maryland Domestic Violence Attorney

While it is a good idea to protect family members against abuse, the effect of the law has been to cause enormous problems for those who are accused, who are often innocent. At Reinstein, Glackin, Patterson & Herriott, LLC, we take family abuse allegations seriously. At the same time, we know that accusations are sometimes made in anger, out of spite or to obtain advantage in a child custody decision.

Some people speak of a domestic violence "trap." One family member may call the police on the other, but there is no option after the police come to drop charges. The case belongs to the prosecution now, and they will do what they want, not what your family wants.

Were you arrested for domestic violence/assault? Then you need a lawyer who understands the charges and has helped many before you. Many times the lawyers at RGPH have arranged for clients to be put in diversion programs or attend anger management classes, leading to dismissal of charges.
