Southfield Domestic Violence Attorneys

Detroit-Area Criminal Defense Lawyers

Passions can run high in a relationship, and things sometimes get out of hand. Even a mere accusation of domestic violence can greatly disrupt your life, and a conviction can be devastating. If you are accused of spousal abuse or any form of domestic violence, you will need a strong, experienced attorney on your side.

Our criminal defense practice is led by attorney Burt E. Salinger, a former prosecutor with more than 30 years of legal experience. That experience gives our firm insight into how prosecutors approach domestic violence cases, allowing us to build strong defenses for our clients.

Why Were You Arrested?

When police are called to the scene of a domestic disturbance and they find evidence of assault or battery, they have to make an arrest, even if the victim does not want to press charges. The victim has no control over the issue. The alleged perpetrator is taken to the police station, and then the local prosecutor decides what to do next.

Will You Go To Jail?

The answer to this question largely depends on your criminal history. If this is your first domestic violence offense, we may be able to have you placed in an education program for first offenders. If you successfully complete the program, your conviction will be dismissed and you will have a clear record.

What if the Charges Are False?

Our attorneys thoroughly investigate the facts surrounding domestic violence charges. More often than you may think, the allegations are baseless. There are even situations where a spouse alleges domestic violence in order to gain an upper hand in a divorce or custody dispute. We will explore all options for resolving the situation, including the possibility of mutual restraining orders. You can rely on us to aggressively protect your rights against fraudulent charges.
