Domestic violence charges are taken seriously here in the state of Ohio, and yet in some cases accidents occur or wrong accusations are made. At Gounaris Abboud, LPA, we have dedicated our practice to criminal defense, including those who are facing charges for domestic violence. In many cases, males are the ones who are accused of these actions, and yet what many individuals don't realize is the fact that both men and woman are equally accused of these actions, and our firm is dedicated to offering our services to both male and female clients who have found themselves in a legal bind with the law.
Recently, our firm has had the privilege of helping yet another client with their criminal charges. In the Fairborn Municipal Court, our client was a woman accused of domestic violence towards her estranged husband. What made this case unique was the fact that she was currently involved in a divorce battle with her husband and dealing with various custody issues at the time of the charges. In the event her husband was able to win and prove that his wife was guilty of domestic violence, the divorce and custody battle outcome would look very different and in his favor.
For this very reason, fighting the charges placed against her was crucial, so that she would not only be entitled to different aspects of the divorce, but also keep the right to be with her children. After six months of litigation on her behalf, our firm was able to aggressively fight for her and the court was finally led to dismiss the charges placed against her. Domestic violence charges are a serious accusation, and in the event of being convicted the penalties with the law could be very serious.
