Domestic Violence Attorney In Westwood/Dedham
A charge associated with domestic violence is not only serious because it can result in jail time — but also is an offense that carries a large stigma in society. If you have been arrested for a charge related to domestic violence you should exercise your right to remain silent and your right to attorney. You should then contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer who not only handles domestic violence charges, but also is intimately familiar with the law in Massachusetts and can help you protect your record and your reputation.
Contact a Dedham/Westwood lawyer at the Law Office of Philip L. Arnel.
At the Law Office of Philip L. Arnel, we will defend you from your arrest and charging through all criminal hearings, plea negotiations, trial, and any post-trial work such as probation or expungement. If you have been charged with a domestic violence offense, contact our office in Norfolk County to schedule a free initial consultation.
Our office handles all types of criminal charges related to domestic violence, including:
- Harassment, including repetitive threatening phone calls
- Assault and battery
- Intimidation of a witness
- Restraining order violations
Although many of these charges are self-explanatory, intimidation of a witness involves actions such as the victim trying to contact the police and the abuser ripping the phone out of their hand. No matter what the charge, it is important to have a lawyer who will work with you to understand the circumstances of the situation, collect all relevant evidence and zealously represent you in court.
More importantly, if you have a restraining order against you, we can help you fight this type of restrictive document. Attorney Arnel was the first attorney in Massachusetts to successfully have a restraining order expunged from a client’s civil record (Domestic Violence Registry Index).
He knows the system from beginning to end — including having existing orders vacated and criminal records expunged. He can also move to have your criminal record sealed.
