As a qualified domestic assault attorney, Chad Bank will work hard to defend your rights in a court of law, no matter how serious the accusation.
Why do you need a Rhode Island domestic violence attorney?
Domestic violence is a type of violent crime that correctly notes violence between family members, or otherwise violence that occurs between two or more cohabitating people (for example, violence that occurs between a man and his live-in girlfriend). Because of the intimate nature of this type of assault, domestic violence carries an enhanced punishment for the type of crime committed, if the accused is indeed convicted of the crime.
There are many types of crimes that qualify as domestic violence crimes, and they include but are certainly not limited to, the following:
- Felony assault, or any other type of assault that resulted in the victim being harmed whether the injury is visible or otherwise intended.
- Any threat of violence that is meant to cause fear or intimidation in the victim.
- Any violation of any restraining order.
Though it is rare, there are times when a purported victim of domestic violence makes a false claim of domestic violence. If that is the case, it can cause the accused untold amounts of harm – so if this has happened to you, or if you are accused of a domestic assault that you did not commit, you need to contact Chad Bank to vigorously defend you against these allegations.
Finally, but certainly no less important, remember that it is very difficult to shake off the stigma of domestic violence. In addition to fines and jail time, all those who are convicted of domestic violence must submit to a batterer’s intervention program and pay a $125 fine. To avoid this from happening – and to prevent the stigma of being a domestic abuser – you must immediately contact Chad Bank to handle this matter.
