Kane County Domestic Violence Defense Attorney
Charges of Assault, Domestic Abuse, and Battery
Although women are finding themselves charged with domestic assault more often than a decade ago, the fact is men are still far more likely to be accused of assault and domestic battery following an argument. If you are a man who has been charged with domestic violence, you need aggressive legal representation right away.
Domestic Battery Defense in Illinois
I am attorney Brian J. Mirandola. I have been handling domestic violence cases on both sides of the courtroom in Elgin, Aurora, and other communities throughout the region, for more than a decade. As a former assistant prosecutor in Kane County, I have seen horrible abuses of the system and false allegations of domestic violence made against men, often to gain an upper hand during a pending custody dispute. With my experience as a Elgin domestic violence defense attorney, I have also seen women seeking to drop charges following a misunderstanding, only to have the District Attorney drag the case through the courts and cost the father visitation rights and access to his own home.
I know how serious the problem of domestic battery is for the victims. If you are a man who needs counseling, my law firm will strive to get you into the right program to help you avoid a conviction and get you the help you need. If this is your first offense, I will work closely with the prosecutor to protect your rights and attempt to remove many of the automatic restrictions you face.
If you face any of the following types of charges or legal matters, let me help you protect your rights:
- Misdemeanor or felony domestic battery charges;
- Violations of a temporary restraining order or order of protection;
- False allegations of child abuse or domestic violence;
- Conditions of bond that restricts your right to see your children;
- Sexual assault charges; and
- Charges for harassment and stalking.
How Much Time Do You Have?
It is important to act quickly to put an experienced defense lawyer on your side. Often, prosecutors charge the individual removed from the scene of a domestic dispute without knowing the facts. Having a lawyer present at questioning can often help clarify matters and lead to a reduction or dismissal of charges. In addition, you will want to ensure that the judge does not set conditions of bail so tough that you lose freedoms and parenting rights.
