Protecting Against Domestic Violence Or Assault Charges

Many domestic violence claims arise during a family law dispute. We can look at your family law case and help you understand the impact that these allegations will have upon that case as well. By working with an attorney who is experienced in both family law and criminal defense, you can save yourself time, money and frustration.

These cases often involve very high emotions and two different stories about what really happened. At Gibson Law Offices, in Louisville, our goal is to help you explore your defense options, and help you reduce the potential impact that this case will have upon your future. Whether you have been charged with domestic violence or any other assault crime, our experienced lawyer, Ken Gibson, is here to help.

Ken has been handling these types of cases for over two decades. He has extensive knowledge in both the family law and criminal defense portions of these cases, and can use this to prepare effective strategies that work hand-in-hand with what is happening in either case.

What You Need To Know About Domestic Violence Crimes

Many people fail to realize that a domestic violence conviction can have a significant effect upon several different parts of their lives. They may be unable to own firearms. They might be prevented from working in certain fields. They could lose time with their kids. Because of these penalties in Kentucky, it is extremely important to prepare a comprehensive defense against any of these charges.

We help with a number of different issues connected to criminal cases involving domestic violence, including:

  • Examining your entire case to understand exactly what is happening regarding the allegations
  • Preparing a defense against allegations of assault or violence
  • Appearing on your behalf in hearings regarding emergency protective orders or domestic violence orders
  • Working with prosecutors to lessen potential domestic violence charges

Assault In Non-Domestic Violence Cases

If you have been charged with an assault that is not related to domestic violence, know that there are still very serious consequences that may result if convicted. Even something as seemingly insignificant as a bar fight can result in potential felony charges depending upon the injuries suffered by the victim. We take immediate action to protect your rights and pursue a resolution that is in your best interests.
