A client came to Gounaris Abboud, LPA after being arrested for domestic violence. The client is a Saudi Arabian national with two small children. Her husband called authorities, claiming that she had abused him and was guilty of domestic violence. She was arrested at her apartment and charged with a misdemeanor. She was taken to jail. The Dayton defense lawyers at Gounaris Abboud, LPA were able to convince the prosecutor that the case had been misread, and that the client was not guilty of domestic violence at all.

In response, the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the case and instead charge the woman with a disorderly conduct crime. This means that the client only received a $200 fine and was not compelled to stay in jail. She was placed on unsupervised probation for good behavior for one year. If you have been arrested for domestic violence, and need a defense attorney who can advocate for you, then contact the Dayton criminal defense lawyers at Gounaris Abboud, LPA. These lawyers are committed to pursuing success in their cases, and will fight for you.
