A domestic violence attorney in Elizabeth NJ can help you avoid the legal penalties and social stigmas of a conviction on domestic violence charges. There are several potential legal arguments on your behalf:

  • Self Defense: This can be argued, if the victim’s injuries were sustained as a result of your reasonable efforts to protect yourself from the attacks of the victim.
  • Protection of a Third Party: This can be argued, if the victim’s injuries were sustained as a result of your reasonable efforts to protect another individual from the attacks of the victim.
  • Lack of Intent: A domestic violence attorney in Elizabeth NJ can argue this theory if the victim’s injuries were sustained as a result of an action that was not intended to inflict harm (i.e., the victim’s foot was unintentionally slammed in the front door as you made your departure).
  • Lack of a Crime: This can be argued, if the victim’s injuries can be proven to have been self-inflicted. Or, if it can be proven that the injuries had never occurred (i.e., no threats were ever made, an altercation never happened, etc.)
  • De minimis: This can be argued if the alleged offense is so minimal that it should not even be considered a violation of the law.
