Allegations of intimate partner abuse, child abuse or other types of family violence can result in serious criminal consequences and collateral damage to your reputation. And while many people are quick to judge based on allegations alone, the truth is that domestic violence cases are often much more complex than they may seem.
At the Law Offices of Hanlon & Rief, we understand that complex family dynamics can result in false or overblown allegations of domestic violence. When you hire our lawyers, we will work tirelessly to ensure that your side of the story is heard and that the facts are not overshadowed by emotional appeals, rumors and hearsay. In doing so, we will work toward a reasonable and favorable resolution to the charges you are facing.
