Domestic Charges

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

In too many cases, police called to the scene of a domestic argument feel they have no choice but to charge one of the parties with domestic assault. Even in circumstances when the alleged victim doesn't choose to file charges, the prosecutor may be left with no choice but to proceed with criminal charges and a no contact order. Innocent people may go months without seeing their spouse or children, often without due process.
