Virginia Beach Domestic Violence Defense Attorneys

Speak with a Virginia Beach Criminal Attorney

In order for a domestic violence case to be successfully prosecuted, the prosecution must be able to present strong evidence of abuse. Therefore, in order to successfully defend a domestic violence case, you need to retain an attorney who can disprove any arguments that the prosecution makes and who can provide solid evidence that you did not abuse anyone in your household. McCormack & McCormack has handled criminal defense cases for more than 49 combined years and is more than capable of getting your charges dropped or your case dismissed.

What are the Penalties for Domestic Violence?

We have seen this offense being charged in nearly all domestic assault cases, which dramatically changes the potential outcome for defendants in Virginia. Instead of facing only a Class 1 misdemeanor of domestic assault, persons also charged with this offense face a much more serious Class 6 felony if convicted.

Penalties for misdemeanor domestic violence can include the following:

  • Up to 12 months in jail
  • $2,500 in fines

Penalties for felony domestic violence can include the following:

  • Up to 5 years in prison
  • $2,500 in fines

Additionally, federal law prohibits people convicted of domestic assault of purchasing/possessing firearms and Virginia recently enacted a new law for the offense of strangulation.

False accusations of domestic violence are commonly made by angry or bitter spouses, or by children who have been set up by another adult to accuse the defendant of violence. Whatever the case may be for you, speak with a Virginia Beach criminal defense lawyer from our firm right away to discuss what can be done to fight your charges and prevent you from being removed from your home.
