Strong Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges

The Law Office of Philip R. Nathe represents clients who are unjustly accused of family violence. If you have been arrested, you need a quality attorney who will prevent prosecutors from abusing your constitutional rights to a fair hearing or trial. We vigorously defend clients against all domestic violence charges, including:

  • Domestic battery
  • Interference with a domestic violence call
  • Violation of an order of protection
  • Child abduction
  • Child abuse
  • Spousal abuse or battery
  • Criminal sexual abuse
  • Stalking/harassment
  • Other offenses related to family violence

A restraining order can have many negative consequences, including removal from your home, restricted access to your children, interference with your job, and limits on your rights to possess firearms. If a spouse or partner is seeking an order of protection against you, Mr. Nathe will stand beside you to fight the judge's order. Frequently, restraining orders or domestic abuse allegations will result from a parent's attempt to gain leverage in a child custody dispute.

Domestic battery is usually charged as a Class A misdemeanor, and most of the time, court supervision is not an option. After a 72-hour "cooling off" period, the prosecution will subpoena the alleged victim, even if that person does not want to press charges. In more serious cases, such as those involving aggravated domestic battery or prior convictions, you may face felony charges, or you could be accused of committing a sex crime. To ensure that your rights will be protected and that you will be able to avoid serious consequences that could threaten your family relationships, your reputation, and your freedom, it is critical to have knowledgeable representation by an experienced criminal defense attorney.
