Defending Clients Charged With Domestic Violence
All it takes is one phone call. If your spouse, your significant other, your parent or even your roommate dials the police and claims that you threatened him or her, you are suddenly in danger of very serious consequences. In many cases, once the police come to the door, they won’t leave without taking someone into custody — even if you aren’t guilty.
At the Law Offices of John J. Fioravanti Jr., we have a reputation in Bucks County and beyond for providing highly experienced criminal defense representation to Pennsylvania clients. In practice since 1979, our founding attorney handles all types of violent crime cases ranging from domestic violence to child abuse, assault and battery. You can rely on him for the vigorous defense you need against the significant charges you face.
You Could Lose Your Gun Rights, Your Ability To Return Home And More
A domestic violence conviction can come with many different consequences. Among other penalties, you may:
- Lose your right to return home. A protection from abuse (PFA) order or restraining order prohibits you from contacting the alleged victim. If he or she lives in your house, this means that you cannot even enter your own home.
- Spend time in prison. Depending on the severity of the offense, you may be sentenced to jail or prison time.
- Lose your ability to own a firearm. Pennsylvania law prohibits you from owning or carrying a gun if you are convicted of domestic violence.
We Are Here To Tell YOUR Side Of The Story
The alleged victim will have more than one person on his or her side in court. At the hearing, you also need a strong advocate who can speak up on your behalf and present the most compelling defense possible under the facts of the case. Every story has two sides; we understand this, and we are here to present your side to the judge.
