Ohio Disorderly Conduct and Domestic Violence Defense

Many defendants charged with domestic violence do not retain a criminal defense attorney at first because they think the prosecution will simply drop the charges against them. Defendants assume that the prosecution will not pursue a conviction if the alleged victim asks the prosecution to drop the charges. Most prosecutors, however, are very reluctant to dismiss domestic violence charges once charges have been filed.

If you have been arrested for or charged with domestic violence, it is important to understand that the prosecution has the right to compel your spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend or domestic partner to testify against you at trial. To protect your rights, it is important to retain a domestic violence lawyer who can protect your rights and handle your case properly. I encourage you to contact me by e-mail, attorney Michael S.

Experienced Domestic Violence Defense Attorneys

Criminal courts are hard on domestic violence charges. Domestic assault can occur in relationships outside of marriage, including:

  • Ex-spouse
  • Girlfriends or boyfriends
  • Parents or children
  • In-laws
  • All family members including aunts and uncles
  • Roommates

I am a Columbus domestic violence attorney, and at my Ohio law firm, I understand the importance of having a criminal attorney in your corner. You can rely on me to protect your interests in and out of the courtroom.

Disorderly Conduct in Ohio

Disorderly conduct is a catchall charge that police use to arrest anyone they perceive to be acting up or causing a problem or disturbance in public. In many of these cases, the evidence is based on police accounts and testimony, which can be difficult to defend against, especially for a defendant who does not have an attorney.

If you have been arrested or charged with domestic assault, disorderly conduct or any other crime, do not attempt to represent yourself. Retain an experienced criminal defense attorney who can negotiate with the prosecution on your behalf and, if necessary, take your case to trial.
