Phil Weinberg provides Experienced and Skilled Domestic Violence Defense
When you are facing domestic violence (DV) charges, it can feel as though the entire world is against you. You may be facing a great deal of hostility from authorities and even family members. In this difficult situation, it is important that you have someone on your side who knows how to protect your interests, whether you are factually guilty or not. I am Bellevue criminal defense attorney Phillip L. Weinberg. For more than 26 years, I have helped people across Washington facing all types of life-altering criminal charges such as domestic violence.
Fighting Hard To Protect Your Rights And Your Reputation
I understand just how much is riding on the outcome of your case and will work tirelessly on your behalf. The penalties for domestic violence go beyond the possibility of jail time, probation fines. A person accused of domestic violence can be forced to comply with a "no-contact" order, meaning that he or she cannot contact the alleged victim. Practically speaking, a no-contact order can force someone to leave his or her home. A no-contact order can jeopardize a father or mother's custody rights as well. Also, when a no-contact order is entered against you, you could wind up being charged with a crime for violating it or allegedly violating it, even if you did not do so.
As your domestic violence defense lawyer, whether for a DV assault, DV harassment, DV violation of no-contact or DV protection order, DV malicious mischief, or any other DV charge, I recognize and empathize that facing these allegations can be and usually is very stressful. I will do everything possible to limit these consequences you face, either by pushing for a dismissal of charges or by negotiating for a favorable plea deal. If necessary, I will also provide aggressive representation at trial. I will work closely with you throughout the entire process, keeping you well informed and helping you pursue the best possible result.
Have You Been Accused Of Somehow Violating A DV Order Of Protection Or A No-Contact Order Entered Against You In A Prior DV Assault Or Other DV Case?
In many cases, people facing domestic violence charges may be accused of violating an order of protection or no-contact order. This is also known as a restraining order. If you have been accused of an order of protection violation, I can help you defend your rights and interests. Over my career, I have excellent success with the defense of these types of charges.
