Domestic violence is an act of violence against a family or household member. Although domestic violence is at its lowest level a misdemeanor, it can be enhanced up to a felony level with a prior conviction.
Many jobs will not allow employees to continue work while a case is pending. Even an allegation of domestic violence often results in removal from one's home and temporary or even permanent inability to own or possess a firearm.
Domestic violence reports to law enforcement are met with vigorous investigation. This can mean police entering your home, and immediate arrest if there is physical evidence that matches the story of the report.
Domestic violence allegations are often based on an injury and the statement of one person. Special interest groups have kept pressure on law enforcement and the legislature. Ohio attorney Brandon Shroy knows that every story has at least two sides. Make sure yours is heard by an attorney zealously advocating for you. Brandon has successfully prosecuted and defended domestic violence allegations in and around central Ohio and can bring 12 years of experience to your case to secure the best possible outcome.
