Domestic violence charges have potentially lasting repercussions. You can be assured that the prosecuting attorneys will fight for a guilty verdict in these cases. In fact, North Carolina employs specific domestic violence prosecutors dedicated to handling such cases. At Dickerson Law Firm, P.A., we will fight back with equal force. We will stand strong to protect your rights.
Experience With Civil And Criminal Cases
We have more than 60 years of combined experience defending people accused of spousal abuse, domestic battery or domestic violence. Our criminal defense attorneys serve clients in Hillsborough and throughout the surrounding parts of North Carolina. We often fight domestic violence cases on two fronts: the criminal case and the civil case.
You face severe consequences if a jury convicts you of domestic violence in criminal court, including jail time, serious fines and a permanent criminal record. Such a record can threaten your employment and future job prospects, as well as your ability to find housing.
In your civil case, you can defend yourself against the imposition of a domestic violence protective order, also known as a restraining order. These orders can prevent you from returning to your home, from seeing your children and from going places that you normally go. We will work hard to see that these charges do not jeopardize your liberties.
