Defending Clients Accused of Domestic Violence

Many domestic violence cases start with a personal protection order. These orders are frequently granted ex parte, meaning that you will not be notified that one has been filed against you. However, if you violate the PPO, you could face charges for that violation. With domestic violence, you could also face charges for assault.

You could face jail time and fines. If a PPO was filed by a spouse, you may not be able to return to your home and you may risk losing your children in a custody battle. An experienced criminal defense and family law attorney, James D. Veldhuis can defend you from these charges, help you challenge a PPO and protect your interests in divorce and custody actions.
