What is Domestic Violence?

Rhode Island Domestic Abuse Attorney

Domestic violence refers to criminal offenses occurring between household or family members.

This type of offense may be alleged between:

  • Spouses
  • Former spouses
  • Adult persons related by blood or marriage
  • Adult persons who are presently residing together or who have resided together in the past three (3) years
  • Persons who have a child in common regardless of whether they have been married or have lived together
  • Persons who are or have been in a substantive dating or engagement relationship within the past year, depending upon certain factors

Often, those accused of domestic violence are viewed with prejudice and presumed guilty by law enforcement, family, neighbors, and others, whether they are proven to be or not. If you have been charged with or are under investigation for a crime of domestic violence, it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney at our firm as soon as possible.

You will need an experienced and skilled criminal defense lawyer at your side. Our attorneys have more than 50 years of collective legal experience among them, all of which may be used on your behalf. Any domestic violence crime is a serious matter which immediately requires the attention and services of a competent lawyer.
