DuPage County Defense Lawyer for Domestic Battery

Bloomingdale Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

Order of Protection Violations Attorney in Illinois

Being convicted of a violent crime such as domestic battery has the potential to radically influence your life. Not only could you face heavy fines and jail time, but a domestic violence-related conviction can also influence child custody decisions and immigration concerns.

At Ana M. Mencini & Associates, P.C., we firmly believe in the concept of "innocent until proven guilty," especially in cases of alleged domestic violence. With this in mind, we work closely with our clients to build solid defense strategies that give them the best chances possible of avoiding conviction. When you choose our law firm to represent you during domestic violence-related criminal proceedings, you can rest assured that your fight is our fight.

Domestic Violence Defense Strategies that Work

There is no question that domestic violence is a major problem in the United States. Approximately one in four women and one in seven men report being victims of stalking, physical violence, or other forms of abuse at the hands of a family member or romantic partner. However, many allegations of domestic violence are exaggerated or completely unfounded.

Whether you have been charged with domestic battery, aggravated domestic battery, interfering with the reporting of domestic violence, violating an order of protection, or a related offense, we are ready to help. Our attorneys have more than two decades of combined experience defending clients against a wide range of criminal charges. We know the tactics prosecutors use to secure domestic violence convictions and how to counter them. Our ultimate goal is to get the charges against you dismissed so that you can move on with your life. When this is not possible, our lawyers will work with you to find programs and opportunities to reduce any criminal penalties you do face. Protecting your future is our top priority.

Trusted Counsel for Protective Order Violations in Bloomingdale

In many cases, when a person is accused of domestic violence or abuse, the accuser requests an order of protection from the court. Depending on the situation, the court could also issue such an order on its own. An order of protection, sometimes referred to as a restraining order in other states, may prohibit you from contacting the accuser or coming within a certain distance of his or her home and workplace. An order of protection may even forbid you from staying in your own home or possessing firearms.

If you violate a protection order, you could be arrested and charged with a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail. A second protection order violation is a Class 4 felony offense in Illinois. It carries a penalty of up to three years in jail and a maximum fine of $25,000.

The experienced criminal defense attorneys at Ana M. Mencini & Associates, P.C. have helped numerous individuals accused of violating orders of protection avoid these harsh penalties. Let us put our experience and legal knowledge to work for you. Our team will gather evidence in the form of text messages, emails, voicemails, or other communication, interview witnesses who can corroborate your side of the story, or employ other defense strategies customized to address your unique circumstances.
