What to Do if You’ve Been Wrongfully Accused of Domestic Violence

March 11, 2022

If you have been wrongfully accused of domestic violence, you may be feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or frightened. A domestic violence conviction can have a serious impact on your social and professional prospects. However, there are several steps you can take to protect yourself from a false accusation. 

Contact a Lawyer

If you’re dealing with a wrongful accusation of domestic violence, you should contact a defense attorney right away. Whether the claim is true or not, the accusing party will most likely attempt to bring you to trial. You will need an experienced legal professional like Janet Altschuler to advocate for your rights and your future in the courtroom. Only a licensed defense attorney can help you prepare to defend yourself against a false accusation, and they can also speak on your behalf. 

Prepare Your Case

If your case is brought to trial, you will need to design a thorough defense. Be sure to assemble any witnesses that will be able to accurately testify on your behalf and provide pertinent facts. Witnesses can provide oral evidence that conflicts with the story the prosecutor tells the jury. 

A solid roster of witnesses can also expose factual, documentary, or behavioral inconsistencies that are present in the prosecution’s case. The story backing up a false accusation is likely to contain incorrect information that your defense attorney can use to prove your innocence. The success of your defense will rely on your ability to point out the flaws in the prosecution’s argument.
