Skilled Domestic Violence Representation
Addressing domestic violence issues is difficult for both victims and defendants accused of perpetrating violence, especially when courts get involved. These issues can disrupt the lives and happiness of either, or both, parties. When you are involved in this kind of issue, it can take an experienced attorney to protect your best interests.
At Stauff & Gross, PLLC in Raleigh, our lawyers know what is at stake in these cases, and how to defend our clients through them. We are committed to bringing the most good to the people in our community, which is why we strive to provide our clients with the representation they deserve from their lawyers.
What You Need To Know
Before you begin planning to protect yourself from abuse or an accusation of abuse, you need to know how the law relates to your case. In North Carolina, acts of domestic violence can include:
- Attempting to cause physical injury or intentionally causing bodily injury to a person or member of that person’s family or household
- Placing a person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury
- Placing a person in fear of harassment that causes substantial emotional distress
- Sexual assaults, sexual batteries and other sexual offenses
Oftentimes, either a protective order or a civil no-contact order may be necessary in the resolution of these cases. While a victim of domestic violence may need one of these orders, someone who is falsely accused can suffer greatly from a court placing one against them. Our goal in these cases is to uphold the truth of the matter and protect our clients.
