Representing People Accused of Domestic Violence or Assault
Canton, GA Domestic Violence & Spousal Abuse Defense Lawyer
When a domestic conflict triggers a call to the police in the state of Georgia, what was once a private or family matter is now an issue of the State versus the accused. Under the current state and federal law, if law enforcement is called to the scene and finds evidence of violence, someone is going to jail, even if the alleged victim does not choose to press charges.
The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Williams, LLC represents people who are accused of domestic violence or assault (frequently called FVA or Family Violence Act) in North Metro-Atlanta, including Canton, Woodstock, Holly Springs, and Marietta, GA.
Domestic Violence Laws: Defending Your Rights in Georgia
The federal government has pushed states to enact severe domestic violence laws. While these laws provide needed protection to victims of assault, they are also abused by people who want to retaliate against a spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend. Many times, the accuser does not even realize the serious consequences that may result from the charge.
A conviction on domestic assault charges can affect you for the rest of your life:
You will have a criminal record.
You may lose your job.
Finding a new job will be difficult, as few employers would want to hire someone who has been convicted of a domestic assault charge.
You will be barred from owning firearms or even buying ammunition under federal law.
As your lawyer, we will force the state to prove its case against you.
