St. Paul Domestic Assault Defense Attorney
Domestic violence is an offense that involves two people who are related by blood, are or have been married, have an intimate relationship, currently live or have lived in the same household, or have a child together. Physical harm does not have to take place in order for a person to be charged with domestic violence. A person’s reasonable fear of harm can be enough for police to remove an alleged abuser from his or her home.
Problems in these cases frequently arise when an alleged victim claims domestic violence when no violence has occurred or claims to be the victim when he or she was actually the aggressor. If you have been arrested for domestic violence or a restraining order has been issued against you, it is essential that you contact a qualified St. Paul criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
I represented a 42-year-old Dakota County man who was charged with domestic assault. I fully investigated the matter and prepared the case for trial. The alleged victim made new statements recanting her original story, and all charges were dismissed on the day of trial.
I represented a client charged with malicious punishment of a child in Ramsey County. My client was accused of breaking his son’s leg. After a thorough cross-examination of the State’s expert and presentation of my client’s case, the jury found him NOT GUILTY in less than 30-minutes.
