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.
