Bend Domestic Violence Lawyers

It would be very difficult to overstate the sweeping adverse consequences of a domestic violence conviction in Oregon. Although the most common "DV" charges such as Assault - 4 and harassment are misdemeanors, having one on your record can devastate employment prospects and impact many other areas of your life. Charges such as coercion or felony assault if a child was present or you have a prior conviction are even more devastating.

In addition, many domestic violence charges are accompanied by filings for restraining orders that disrupt your life and family relationships. If you are involved in a custody dispute, losing at a restraining order hearing or accepting a plea to a domestic violence charge could well cost you access to your children. At this pivotal time, you need to contact the most committed, resourceful Bend domestic violence attorney available.

Falsely Accused? Is the Alleged Victim Seeking Leverage or Revenge?

Law enforcement and prosecutors take allegations of spousal abuse and other forms of domestic violence seriously for good reason. Unfortunately, however, false and exaggerated allegations are common — and one unfounded claim can put you in jail.

It is essential to work with an attorney who will thoroughly investigate the allegations, provide sound legal guidance and help you make informed decisions about your defense. We are skilled trial lawyers and accomplished negotiators with in-depth knowledge of your viable options. For your criminal case or restraining order defense, our work on your behalf may include:

  • Exposing problems with evidence, including discrepancies between alleged victims' claims and doctors' findings regarding any injuries suffered
  • Introducing witness testimony and other evidence that exposes the real motivations of your accuser and sheds doubt on the allegations against you
  • Taking your case all the way through trial or negotiating for reduced consequences on your behalf, often by seeking anger management treatment and maintaining your eligibility for a case dismissal
