Toale has 30 years of courtroom experience. We use that experience to help our clients achieve the best possible results in even the worst situations.

The Consequences of a Domestic Violence Conviction

Following an arrest for domestic violence, your ability to interact with the other party will most likely be limited by an automatic stay-away order. This order will prohibit communication with the other party in person, via phone, email, and even messages through third parties. Violating this order is a criminal charge in itself.

If your case involves certain circumstances, you will be facing the possibility of an increased sentence. If the other party is pregnant or was strangled, the penalty will be enhanced.

A common misconception is that if the other party refuses to cooperate with the prosecutor, the case will be dismissed. In a number of instances, prosecutors will pursue these charges even when the other party wishes the charges to be dropped.
