Domestic violence charges can arise when a physically, emotionally or psychologically abuse event occurs between spouses, parents and children, or even unrelated individuals sharing the same home. At the Hartford law offices of Rome McGuigan, P.C., we provide intelligent, effective domestic violence defense to individuals throughout the state of Connecticut.

Spousal Abuse And Family Violence

While domestic violence can take the form of serious criminal assaults and rape, it also can stem from lesser forms of physical abuse such as slapping, pushing, stalking or even throwing items at another person. Emotional, psychological and financial abuse may also rise to the level of criminal domestic violence.

At Rome McGuigan, P.C., we immediately investigate the circumstances leading up to the alleged violent event to determine whether an act of domestic violence did, in fact, occur, or whether the act was one of self-defense. We are not afraid to challenge protective orders, police reports and eye witness accounts to uncover the real facts behind the alleged violent act.

Innovative, Intelligent Defenses To Domestic Violence Charges

As former prosecutors and state's attorneys, our lawyers know what it takes to get the prosecution to drop or reduce charges, or agree to alternatives to imprisonment.
