Your Trusted Legal Adviser And Neighbor Ready To Serve You

A Go-To Domestic Violence Defense Attorney In Kalamazoo

The label of “domestic violence offender” is a heavy one, casting a shadow over every aspect of your life. A conviction can close doors to many opportunities in life, tarnish your reputation, jeopardize your freedom and leave your future hanging in the balance.

Often, these charges arise from heated situations where the police don’t have the full story. They have to make an arrest, and you were the unlucky one who got booked. The prosecution may be relying on a one-sided narrative.

I’m Wesley Todd, a domestic violence defense lawyer in Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. I understand the severity and legal complexities of these charges. I know there’s likely more to your situation than meets the eye, and I’m here to help ensure that your side is heard.

Understanding Domestic Violence Charges In Michigan

Domestic violence charges in Michigan apply to alleged acts of violence or threats between individuals in a domestic or romantic relationship. You might be facing criminal charges such as:

  • Domestic assault
  • Aggravated domestic assault
  • Stalking or harassment

The consequences of a conviction are severe, with long-term implications, including the potential for felony charges depending on the circumstances. For college students, this might even mean facing expulsion. If you’re embroiled in a custody dispute, a domestic assault conviction could impact your parental rights and ability to see your children.

You may also be subject to a restraining order – technically called a domestic relationship personal protection order – that can drastically impact your freedom. I can defend you in these proceedings as well.

Crafting Your Defense

Building a strong defense is key, and there are several possible strategies:

  • Self-defense or defense of others
  • False or exaggerated accusations
  • Insufficient evidence

As an experienced domestic abuse attorney in Michigan, I will take the time to understand every facet of your case and chart out the strongest path forward.
