Knowledgeable Philadelphia Domestic Violence Attorney Defends Your Rights

A strong client advocate working diligently to protect your future

If you have been charged with domestic violence, you are most likely concerned about your future. In the past decade the legal definition of domestic abuse has been expanded to include emotional and psychological abuse. There is no doubt that domestic violence of any type is a very serious issue, but it can be doubly tragic when false allegations are made, potentially destroying the life of an innocent person.

When you face domestic violence charges, you should have competent legal counsel in your corner. What sets the Law Offices of David Jay Glassman apart from the competition is our three decades of criminal defense experience. We put that experience to work advocating on your behalf. Among criminal defense attorneys, we are known for being skilled and accessible and also offer our legal services to the residents of Pennsylvania.

Possible reasons for false allegations of domestic violence

There are many factors involved in false allegations of domestic violence, including:

  • An attempt to gain an unfair advantage in a divorce
  • Revenge
  • Mental health issues
  • Drug abuse
  • Jealousy
  • An attempt to bias children or the judge against the other parent in a  custody battle

In other cases, a relatively minor spousal disagreement can escalate, with both parties being equally at fault. A raised voice or gesture that could be interpreted as threatening can be used in claims of domestic violence or abuse. Because allegations of domestic violence have civil and criminal consequences, it is vital that you have a highly qualified Philadelphia criminal lawyer by your side when facing these charges. A damaged reputation and a negatively impacted future can result from allegations of domestic violence.

Harsher penalties in the event of a conviction

A shift in societal attitudes about domestic violence has resulted in stiffer penalties. Recently passed domestic abuse laws include longer jail and prison times, extremely high fines, fees, and mandates to enroll in and complete an anger management course. A conviction of domestic violence can make it difficult to land a job, among other negative consequences.

An experienced Philadelphia assault attorney from at the Law Offices of David Jay Glassman understands the difficult circumstances you face when confronted with domestic abuse allegations. We are prepared to help you with the most innovative legal defense strategies available.
