Domestic Battery Charges
The attorneys at Files & Brasuell, PLLC, in Little Rock, understand the delicate nature of domestic violence and battery cases in Arkansas. Domestic battery incidents often occur between couples or family members after a heated argument goes too far.
The presence of the police can make the situation even more stressful. However, it is important to recognize you rights if you are involved in a domestic violence altercation.
You have the right to hire an attorney after being charged with a misdemeanor offense. Do not just pay the fine. We will protect your rights and work hard to find the best outcome in your case.
Consequences Of A Conviction
Even a misdemeanor domestic battery conviction can have collateral consequences, including the loss of your right to own a gun, having a criminal conviction show up on a background check and being prohibited from having any contact with the victim.
A no-contact order of protection can make life very difficult, especially if you live with the victim. An order of protection violation can result in criminal charges that can only make matters worse.
