Columbus Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

A domestic violence charge can threaten your rights as a citizen. More importantly, however, it can threaten your rights as a parent. At The Sharp Law Firm, LLC, in Columbus, Ohio, our criminal defense attorney has years of experience defending the rights of individuals who have been accused of domestic abuse.

Protecting You From An Enhanceable Offense

Domestic violence is an enhanceable offense, meaning that the more times you are convicted of it, the greater the consequences may be. It is even possible to be charged with felony domestic violence without hurting anyone.

Whether you are facing your first charge or have been convicted before, it is important to work with a domestic violence defense lawyer in Columbus who understands the law and has your best interests at heart.

At our law firm, it is important to us that our clients get the strong legal representation they deserve, which is why we practice only what we know. In addition to domestic violence charges, we can also help with protection order violations.

Protecting Your Parental Rights

A domestic abuse charge may not only affect your freedom and employment opportunities, but it may also affect your child custody and parenting time. If someone is accused of domestic violence, a judge may determine that he or she is a threat to a child or children involved. In that case, you may no longer be able to see your children or only be allowed to see them during supervised visitation.

We know how important your relationship with your child or children is, and we will strive to protect your parental rights.
