Domestic violence charges in Virginia

Conviction of a domestic violence crime like domestic assault can have serious consequences in Virginia – both legally and in your personal life. Unfortunately, domestic violence accusations are sometimes exaggerated or fabricated altogether. In other cases, domestic violence accusations may be made by the aggressor or by someone who is equally at fault for the incident. Due to the seriousness of these charges, it is vital that you are represented by an experienced, knowledgeable, and aggressive attorney to protect your rights at this critical time. We can help you work toward the optimal outcome for your case, whether a dismissal, a not guilty verdict, or other appropriate outcome.

Getting legal assistance is as easy as contacting us and saying, “I need a lawyer.”

When you are charged with domestic assault, it can be difficult to find anyone to stand by your side.

At the Law Office of Lori A. Michaud, we just want to hear your side of the story, help you assess the likely outcomes, and prepare a solid and appropriate defense.
