Handling Domestic Violence Cases

Whether they are true or false, accusations of domestic violence can leave you facing formal charges and a range of punishments if convicted. These situations are serious and require the attention of an experienced attorney to ensure your rights are protected. At Monzón, Guerra & Associates in Lincoln, Nebraska, we have more than 20 years of experience fighting for justice in all types of criminal law matters including domestic assault, spousal abuse and family violence.

We take the time to investigate all aspects of your case, including those dealing with restraining orders and orders of protection. In some situations, domestic violence accusations are false, leveled to gain some type of leverage over the accused. We work to determine the validity of claims, and proceed in a way that suits your best interests. While it may be possible to negotiate with the prosecution and secure a lesser charge, our firm does not shy away from taking cases to court and fighting for justice.

The Impact of Accusations

Even the most minor domestic violence accusations may have an impact on your life. In addition to the criminal aspect of the case, if you own a home, have a job or have children, these parts of your life may be affected by accusations and/or convictions. Since our firm handles family law cases as well as criminal cases, we are highly skilled at dealing with domestic violence issues when they impact a family law case such as child custody.
