St. Louis Lawyers Handling Domestic Violence Defense

A conviction on a domestic violence charge can adversely affect your life in many ways. Even if you do not go to jail, you will have a criminal record that could damage your career prospects. You will lose your right to own a firearm. You could lose your custody or visitation rights.

There Are Two Sides To Every Story

Many people instinctively sympathize with people claiming to have suffered domestic abuse, a tendency that presents significant challenges when defending a person charged with domestic violence. However, at our firm, we know that there are two sides in a domestic dispute.

Our St. Louis domestic violence lawyers level the playing field, by cross-examining witnesses, challenging motives and presenting evidence in our clients’ favor. At Richard H. Sindel, Inc., we will work diligently to obtain the dismissal of the charge whenever possible.

Falsely Accused Of Domestic Violence?

At Richard H. Sindel, Inc., in Clayton, Missouri, we understand the context in which domestic disturbances occur. We also know that some people make false or exaggerated claims of abuse in order to gain an advantage in a divorce or child custody dispute.

If you are subject to a temporary order of protection, you should not attempt to represent yourself. Instead, you should retain experienced legal representation. We can represent you in the hearing for a final order of protection, cross-examining witnesses and presenting evidence in your favor. Our goal will be to prevent the issuance of the final order or to obtain more favorable terms.
