Legal defense for charges of domestic violence and assault

Whether you are the victim of domestic violence or have been charged with domestic violence or assault and battery, you need a skilled and experienced attorney on your side.


If you are a victim, you need someone to talk to immediately, to help guide you through your legal options and to help you protect both yourself and your children. If you have been charged with domestic violence it is imperative that you have aggressive legal counsel to ensure that your voice is heard and your case is fairly presented in court.

Don't get lost in the legal system

When police respond to a call of domestic violence, if they have a reason to believe that violence has occurred, they will make an arrest of whomever they feel is responsible.


Once charged with this offense, without a strong and aggressive legal defense your voice and your case may not be well served by the legal system. A conviction on even a minor charge of domestic violence can have adverse effects for the rest of your life.


If you are the victim of domestic violence, or have been charged with domestic violence, call Ann la Plante, Attorney at Law today at 970-304-9205 to schedule your appointment.
