Aggressive defense that helps you uphold your reputation
There’s a strong bias in the criminal justice system against people accused of domestic violence crimes. In many circumstances, these cases come down to your word against the word of the alleged victim. Considering the harsh consequences of conviction for domestic violence crimes — including jail time, fines, probation, eviction and orders of protection — it’s important to seek the help of attorney Mark Battaglia as soon as you are charged.
Mark uses a variety of criminal defense methods to protect you from these charges. He argues for dismissal of your case based on the following:
- Dismissal by definition. There are certain characteristics an act must include to be defined as domestic violence. Mark can argue that your alleged act does not fit any of these definitions, and thus you cannot be convicted of a crime.
- Lack of evidence. It’s extremely difficult to collect evidence in domestic violence cases because so much of it depends on the word of another person. Therefore, a common prosecution tactic is to try to provoke an emotional reaction out of you in court to make you look bad in front of the judge or jury. Mark helps you stay calm and avoid taking this bait, ensuring that these tactics don’t get to you. Additionally, he argues a lack of prosecution evidence, which can warrant case dismissal.
Mark’s top priority is always you and your well-being. He works as hard as he can to protect your reputation from false accusations.
