Domestic Violence Cases in NH
Estimates have shown that 33.4% of women, and 24% of men in New Hampshire have experienced some kind of physical assault by an intimate partner. Out of that percentage there are cases where the person facing charges was falsely accused.
A domestic violence arrest can be a devastating experience. It may have been a harmless argument that escaladed or a total misunderstanding or even self-defense. Following the arrest this can be a very scary and uncertain time for you.
We will fight for you and defend your rights. It’s our mission to uncover any and all mistakes by the plaintiff, prosecution and arresting officer. We will perform a full investigation on the events leading up to the incident. Building a strong defense takes time as we will need to uncover the facts and to interview witnesses and to gather as much information as possible to build a powerful defense. Attorney Paul J. Garrity has handled many of these types of cases.
The punishments for a domestic violence charge can be severe. The prosecution is aggressive in these cases and do not use a lot of discretion. You should have an aggressive attorney with you as the severity of the case is dependent on the events that took place, such as was there any hospitalization needed? How severe the injuries were, if any. They will look to see if there is a history of domestic violence in the past. Was it self-defense? Were you falsely accused?
