Domestic Violence/Assault

Criminal Law / Domestic Violence/Assault

A conviction for a crime of violence such as Assault or Domestic Violence may have serious consequences such as imprisonment, loss of livelihood, financial judgment, and harm to reputation. The question in most cases hinges on whether the individual caused or attempted to cause, physical harm to another. This simple question is commonly surrounded by complex circumstances and questions that need to be considered in order to prepare the strongest defense for a client.

Wrongly accused

Many people do not know all of the possible defenses available to them when accused of assault or domestic violence. Through the years, from our offices in Sidney, Troy, and Greenville we have handled domestic violence and assault charges in the courts located in Miami County (Troy), Shelby County (Sidney), Darke County (Greenville), Logan County (Bellefontaine), Auglaize County (Wapakoneta), and Allen County (Lima), as well as the surrounding area.

Roberts & Kelly, LLP has represented individuals accused of assault or domestic violence, who were in fact innocent. Someone can be involved in a violent incident but the circumstances justified their actions. It is for this reason that our lawyers place great emphasis on investigation and pre-trial motion practice. If a case must proceed to trial, any element of surprise should be minimized. Such diligent preparation for trial often leads to cases resolving early with less emotional trauma and less disruption to a client’s personal and professional life.
