Restraining Orders and Domestic Abuse
Domestic abuse cases often involve restraining orders in separate civil proceedings. We can assist you with this parallel process as well as the criminal investigation. We will work to determine what happened, identify potential defenses, such as self-defense or defense of a third-party, and consider whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the circumstances. Our priority is to make sure you have a support system throughout the process, working “in tandem” with respected divorce and custody attorneys when necessary.
We are Experienced in Domestic Abuse Crimes Involving:
- Harassment and menacing
- Interference with a 911 call
- Assault and battery
- Restraining orders
Child Abuse Allegations in Oregon State
Domestic abuse charges can vary in degree of offense and can involve different crimes, including child abuse. Typically the allegation will involve the abuse of one spouse by the other or the abuse of a child by a parent. In Oregon, if someone is accused of abusing a spouse, significant other, or partner, and it occurs in the presence of one of their children, it can elevate what would be a misdemeanor assault case to a felony assault case. If you have been accused of domestic abuse, it is important to take action as soon as possible to protect your rights.
