Domestic assault, also known as domestic violence, occurs when an assault
takes place against someone who is related by blood, marriage, a dating
relationship, or even a roommate of the defendant. Assaults can be caused
by inflicting physical bodily injury to another person, creating physical
contact with another person that is extremely offensive or provocative,
or causing another person to fear imminent bodily injury. In other words,
no actual physical contact has to take place in order for someone to be
charged with assault.

Tough, client-recommended representation
As an experienced criminal defense lawyer, I am fully aware that not every
domestic assault case is exactly as it appears. These types of situations
involve tense moments and heated exchanges, and, while emotions are running
high, claims that are partially true or outright false may be made. In
addition to this, biases on the part of law enforcement officials may
lead to innocent parties being arrested and charged prematurely. Find
out how I can advocate for you.

Penalties You May Be Facing
Domestic assault charges are taken very seriously by the State of Tennessee,
and, if you are convicted of one of these crimes, you could face time
in jail or prison, costly fines, a protection order against you, and even
the loss of your parental rights. In addition to this, having a conviction
on your permanent criminal record will cause strains in your personal
relationships and affect your ability to maintain or find employment.
A domestic relationship is considered to be any of the following:
- Former spouse
- Person with whom you have children
- Any person related by blood or marriage
With so much at stake, it should go without saying that finding a trustworthy
and aggressive Murfreesboro domestic assault attorney to take on your
case should be a top priority.
