Knoxville Domestic Violence Lawyers

You Need Trusted Legal Representation

Domestic violence cases can be complex and emotionally charged. Being accused of domestic violence can damage your reputation, and it’s hard to know where to even begin in order to defend yourself from the claims against you. Society has a strong condemnation against domestic violence, and for good reason. Unfortunately, the stigma against the charge can hurt people who are accused of the crime even if they have not been convicted. Furthermore, even charged as a misdemeanor, a domestic violence conviction can affect important rights including the right to own or possess a firearm.

Domestic violence charges can be filed against anyone who shares a household, including:

  • A current or former spouse
  • A roommate or former roommate
  • A current or former boyfriend or girlfriend
  • A current or former sexual relative
  • A relative by blood or adoption
  • A relative or former relative by marriage

Our domestic violence attorneys in Knoxville want to hear your side of the story. High tension and emotional reactions can often obscure people’s perceptions of what actually happened in these events. You deserve an opportunity to tell your story to people who will listen with a clear head and investigate the details on your behalf.

Keep a Cool Head

Feeling angry or upset when you’ve been charged with domestic violence is not unusual. It’s important, however, to keep your emotions in check. Remember that your conduct and the way you treat people are now being thrown into question – however unfair that may be if you have been falsely accused. As tempting as it may be to confront your accuser, it is in your best interests to wait until you have spoken with an attorney. Any interaction you have with your accuser could be used against you in a trial and would likely result in a bond revocation.

Likewise, you should not discuss this case with anyone except your attorney. Even if you believe you are explaining yourself and the person listening is sympathetic, the prosecution can use emotionally charged and obscured stories to further incriminate you, even if the witness is a friend or family member who does not want to hurt you.
