If you have been charged with domestic battery, domestic disorderly conduct, both of which are considered domestic violence or abuse charges, you will benefit from the help of an experienced defense lawyer. These charges can cause a major disruption to your life and well being. In Wisconsin, a person commits the crime of domestic violence by committing battery, inflicting pain or fear, or assaulting a person in his or her family or household. Domestic battery involves a battery against a domestic partner, which can include a girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband.  A person may also be charged with domestic disorderly conduct when there is no clear evidence of physical contact.

Often times these charges stem from an argument between people in a romantic relationship where the police are called. Most people don’t know that when the police are called to a domestic disturbance, they will almost always arrest one of the people involved in the disturbance even if there is no clear physical evidence of any type of battery or injury. Being charged with domestic battery can ruin your reputation and have consequences you never thought you’d experience.

Our skilled domestic battery lawyers can help you get domestic abuse charges reduced or dismissed. Contact us today for a free consultation.
