Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is an issue that has come up on police officers' radar, as domestic violence awareness has grown in recent years. The type of interactions that lead to a domestic dispute typically occur in the privacy of one's own home, so it is difficult for law enforcement to determine what exactly occurred, which may result in harsher charges.

If you believe you may have been overcharged for a domestic violence crime, turn to the Law Office of David Jellinek. Our Newton domestic violence attorney can help.
