Georgia law enforcement officers treat domestic and family violence charges with the utmost seriousness to protect the alleged victim from further harm. If you are accused of domestic violence, you need skilled legal representation to protect your rights and defend you against the charge.
Since founding the Law Office of Jay G. Wall in Woodstock, I have worked diligently to help people accused of domestic violence successfully fight the charges.
Georgia’s Family Violence Law protects individuals against abuse by past or present spouses, parents, stepparents, foster parents, siblings and other people who currently live in or formerly lived in the same household. All too often, a spouse or the other parent of a child will allege family violence to get the upper hand in divorce or custody proceedings. Because these cases are based on each party’s version of the events, the first person to report the incident generally has the advantage. Even if you were acting in self-defense, you could face criminal charges.
The accuser may seek a protective order, which can:
Force you to leave a shared residence
Prevent you from seeing your children
Require you to attend anger management counseling
Result in an arrest if you fail to follow the order
As an experienced trial attorney and former prosecutor, I know how to craft a defensive strategy to counter domestic violence and family violence charges. Whenever possible, I can work to resolve these matters discretely to protect your reputation in the community and your family’s privacy. Let me help you protect your rights and find a favorable solution.
Being accused of domestic violence can cause lasting damage to your relationships and career. I understand the tense and sensitive nature of these charges.
