Domestic Violence Charge Legal Representation

If you have been arrested or accused of criminal domestic violence, our trusted, client-focused defense lawyers are here to help. Allegations of domestic violence can be addressed in criminal court and family court. Our attorneys are committed to protecting the rights of our clients in each forum.

A conviction of a misdemeanor domestic violence charge can impact your right to bear arms under federal law. In some cases, prosecutors may tack on additional assault and battery charges in a domestic violence case.

Domestic violence is an enhanceable offense, and the stakes are raised in cases alleging a repeat CDV charge. Allegations involving serious injury, a threat that reasonably causes an alleged victim to fear serious injury or death, or a domestic assault with a dangerous weapon can lead to a felony charge of domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.

If you are accused of domestic violence, you likely have many concerns about your future. Many men and women feel alone when charged with violence against a household member. You may be ordered to stay away from your home — and your children.

Comprehensive Representation In Domestic Violence Cases

Our law firm understands the significant impact that domestic violence charges can have on your life. Often, the criminal system will impose a no-contact order, creating turmoil in your day-to-day life. A family court no-contact order hearing may also be requested. Because statements made in the family court may be used in a criminal proceeding, it is critical that you have a skilled attorney on your side to protect your rights. At the Schultz Law Firm, LLC, in Spartanburg, we have experience providing effective defense in criminal domestic violence cases and representing clients in related civil court hearings.

We are committed to protecting the rights of our clients. We conduct a complete review of all of the relevant details surrounding a claim of domestic violence. CDV cases are often referred to as "he said, she said" cases. We regularly work with a private investigator to uncover evidence missed or overlooked by the police.
