Domestic Violence


Detroit & Michigan Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer
You are facing severe penalties, if you have been arrested and charged with Domestic Violence
If you charged with Domestic Violence, you could go to jail, be shut out of many jobs, and even lose your children. You need an experienced and aggressive Domestic Violence Lawyer and Attorney to defend your rights.

When the police are called for Domestic Violence, someone is going to jail.
When police are called to a home or residence on a Domestic Violence call, they usually end up removing someone from the home. Police make an arrest on charges of Domestic Violence in order to diffuse a situation and prevent further problems. Even if you acted in self defense or did not strike the other person, public policy requires the police to do something.

You need an Domestic Violence Defense Attorney who will treat your Domestic Violence defense seriously.
An argument with a spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend can quickly become a situation where the police are called. Once they are, they will take the matter seriously. You should too. A conviction or even allegations of Domestic Violence may effect your rights to child custody or visitation, you or your children could be removed from your home, and you could face prison time. You need and deserve competent Domestic Violence representation to protect your rights and reputation.

At the Law Office of James G. Schmier, PLLC, if you are charged with Domestic Violence we will:

  • We listen to our client and investigate all the facts related to a Domestic Violence charge.
  • We examine any prior history of your accuser for making false statements about Domestic Violence.
  • We work to uncover any reason that person may have for making false accusations
  • We use any means necessary to uncover the truth and prove your innocence
  • Advise you of your options in fighting Domestic Violence charges
Even if the victim agrees, you may not be able to get the Prosecutor to "Drop the Charge"
Once charged with Domestic Violence, it is very difficult to get the charges dropped; even if the alleged victim of the Domestic Violence forgives you and wants to drop the matter.In fact, in many Domestic Violence cases, especially with spousal abuse, once an arrest has been made for Domestic Violence, the Prosecutor will take over the case. When this happens, even if the victim wants to forgive and forget, the victim is simply a witness and must take a back seat while the Prosecutor goes ahead with the criminal case.

With all you have to lose, this is not the time to go it alone. Being charged with Domestic Violence could have a devastating impact on your life and the lives of your family.
