Domestic Violence

Criminal Defense Attorneys in Clarks Summit – (570) 391-0866

Have you been accused of committing an act or acts of domestic violence? Unless you can effectively defend your rights and explain your side of the story, you could be slammed with incredibly harsh penalties.

People who are convicted of a domestic violence crime can be punished with:

  • Extensive incarceration
  • High fines
  • Probation
  • Removal of parental rights

The elimination of your right to raise and live with your child will likely be the worst consequence of a domestic violence conviction. In fact, the Pennsylvania Child Welfare Services agency may even remove parental rights at just a serious accusation, regardless of any pending criminal processes. To respond accordingly and protect yourself from these steep penalties, get the criminal defense attorneys of O’Malley Law Office, LLC on your side as soon as you can.

Falsified Claims of Domestic Violence

Whenever we hear from a client who has been accused of domestic violence, the first thing that comes to our minds is wondering if someone would lie about domestic violence for some personal gain. As unthinkable as it might seem, some dishonest spouses and family members fabricate or exaggerate stories of domestic violence out of spite. This is common in family law cases involving child custody. A spouse who wants to ensure they get parenting time and their ex-spouse does not can tell the authorities a false tale of domestic violence and practically ensure a family law judge will rule in their favor.

It is our top objective to make certain you are not subjected to unfair punishments that originate from falsified accusations of domestic violence. Using our investigative skills and history of handling complex divorce cases, our Clarks Summit attorneys are capable of seeking out evidence to use in your defense, no matter where it might be found.
