Domestic Violence Attorney in New Orleans, LA
Consult with Experienced Domestic Violence Attorneys
Instances of domestic violence are very common. Typically, in domestic violence cases, one or both spouses or intimate partners have engaged in abusive behavior toward the other, often leaving a visible injury. In other cases, children or the elderly have been exposed to physical harm or neglect. While some of these charges qualify as misdemeanors, prosecutors often press for felony charges given the severity of the crime, the age or physical condition of the victim, and other factors. In addition, the current climate in Louisiana and elsewhere is to consider domestic violence an “epidemic,” which leads to many prosecutions that should not have been brought in the first place.
Whatever the case may be, these sensitive matters require aggressive, resolute representation. The Law Office Of Alex Kriksciun is here to consult with you about your domestic violence case. Our law firm has represented clients in countless domestic violence charges throughout the greater New Orleans area. As always, when meeting a potential client charged with domestic violence, we treat that person with dignity, respect, and the compassion with which we would expect to be treated.
Domestic Violence Specialists
If you have been charged with a domestic violence-related crime, we will help you build the strong defense you need. When police are called to the scene of domestic incidents, they are frequently under pressure to defuse the situation by arresting somebody. However, it is not uncommon for individuals to make false reports of domestic violence to gain an advantage in civil matters, such as child custody cases. Penalties in domestic violence cases are severe, and can include:
- Protective or Restraining Orders
- Termination of Parental Rights
- Jail or prison time
- Community Service
- Anger Management Programs
- Supervised Child Visitations
- Substance Abuse Counseling
If you have been accused of domestic violence, the Law Office Of Alex Kriksciun is here to help. Contact us today to speak with an experienced domestic violence defense attorney and to set up a free consultation.
Because of confusion on the part of a family member, what should have been a simple denial became questionable to the investigators. Alex called back immediately, understood the nuances of the family dynamics as well as the law & was able to quickly address the problem. The legal aspects of the case were clarified & dealt with in a timely manner, but, perhaps even more important to us, he also took the time to explain the law to our family member in a way that was clear & compassionate. I highly recommend Alex in any case you may have -- he's smart, well versed in the intricacies of the law & takes the time to not only listen, but to truly understand what the person & family are going through. We can't thank him enough.
Gets the job done!!!
