DuPage County Domestic Battery and Domestic Violence Defense Attorneys

When you have been accused of domestic battery or any other type or violence against a spouse or member of your family, the situation is very serious. Violent behavior can obviously have a dramatic impact on the stability of family relationships, but false or overstated allegations of abuse can also be damaging. At McMahon Law Offices, our attorneys have more than 40 years of combined legal experience and have worked with clients dealing with domestic violence of all types. We understand that a conviction on such charges may result in severe criminal consequences, and we are equipped to provide the representation you need.

Counsel for Domestic Battery Cases

Despite years of awareness campaigns and increasing penalties, domestic violence continues to plague families across the region. Such behavior can take many forms, including stalking, threats, intimidation, physical abuse, and sexual assault. Allegations of domestic battery and abuse are extremely serious, so when the police respond to a domestic violence call, one party is likely to leave in their custody. The "zero tolerance" policy maintained by law enforcement often means that the police will arrest first and sort out the details later.

Whether or not charges are ever filed, an arrest can lead to a reputation as an abuser. If charges are filed, law enforcement and prosecutors are often quick to make assumptions, potentially compromising your legal rights. At McMahon Law Offices, we recognize the importance of protecting your personal and professional reputation. We also firmly believe that every criminal defendant is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Experienced Defense for Clients Charged with Domestic Battery

Our entire criminal defense team consists of former prosecutors, and we understand that law enforcement and State's Attorneys take an aggressive approach in matters of domestic violence. When you choose McMahon Law Offices, we will handle your case with equal aggression at every stage of the proceedings, including hearings regarding orders of protection which could limit your rights and freedoms.

Domestic battery is the most basic criminal offense related to domestic violence and may be charged as a Class A misdemeanor for a first offense. Aggravating factors, including previous convictions on your record, could elevate a charge to a felony, with even more severe penalties. Our attorneys also realize that a conviction on domestic violence charges could impact your life in other ways as well. You could potentially lose custody rights regarding your children and the freedom to interact with the people you love.
