I was Involved in a Domestic Violence Incident; what do I Need to tell my Lawyer?

The first thing I need to know about your domestic violence case is what happened, who called the police, who took the first over aggressive action and whether or not you felt you needed to defend yourself. I also want to know what statements you made to the police as well as any injuries on you or the alleged victim.

In many cases, police will take photographs, but those photographs might not accurately reflect what happened. And many times, alleged victims will make statements that are either false or exaggerated. It's really important for us to get all of the discovery in these cases and to have an investigator go out and talk to alleged victims that they'll speak with us.

We're contacted at the Johnson Criminal Law Group about domestic violence cases every day. Oftentimes, people do not want to break up their family or to have the charges, a domestic violence, on their record. So, we do everything we can in our ability to either fight those cases or get our clients the best possible outcome.

If you, or someone you know, have been accused of domestic violence, contact the Johnson Criminal Law Group immediately.

Client Reviews
Lauren Johnson was amazing. She explained everything in ways that were easily understood, & answered all of my question. She was respectful, but also open & honest. She started work on my case the first day we met & got results quickly. She demonstrated passion, concern, and showed true feeling for my situation. My expectations were greatly exceeded. I would say she has an incredible attention for detail, & has a real dedication to her work. Lauren Johnson would be my first recommendation to any of my family or friends similarly in need of legal assistance. - Heather
I researched a lot of attorneys and had met with two attorneys before speaking with Ms. Johnson and retaining her. I was facing serious charges that could not be on my record, due to my job and was really scared. I felt hopeless & thought my life was ruined...until I found Ms. Johnson... - A criminal defense client (drug case)
She is on point. She knows her field well. I have to give credit where credit is due, you deserve it Lauren Johnson... - Anonymous, Victim of Domestic Violence
Lauren K. Johnson was my saving grace. I naively thought you were innocent until proven guilty. However, I soon discovered that CPS and family court does not see things that way... - Mrs. G, a CPS client
Thank you Lauren for your help and support in a very scary, bad time in my life! You were a ray of sunshine in a very dark place. I didn't have to step foot in a court room once, Lauren was there for me... - JB A criminal client
