Southeast Massachusetts: Domestic Assault - Child Abuse
The courts and the district attorney take accusations of domestic assault and child abuse very seriously. If you have been charged or investigated, contact Brockton domestic violence lawyer Andrew H.P. Norton immediately.
We represent people in Brockton, Quincy, Braintree, Bridgewater, Stoughton and all communities of Plymouth County, Norfolk County, Barnstable County, and Bristol County, Massachusetts. There is much at stake, including legal access to your children, jail time or fines, your reputation and other consequences of a criminal record. If you are a government or municipal employee, a conviction may cost you your job. You also lose your right to possess any firearms. Serious offenses may include up to 2 ½ years in state prison.
If the authorities have reasonable grounds for a charge of domestic assault or child abuse, you can be arrested immediately and the D.A. will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. These cases are rarely dismissed, even if the victim doesn't testify or refuses to press charges. It is critical to have a qualified and aggressive defense by an experienced criminal law attorney.
The law office of Andrew H.P. Norton has defended against all types of domestic violence situations: husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend, father/son or mother/daughter.
