Defense Against Stalking, Harassment And Other Charges

Domestic violence charges can spring from physical, mental or emotional abuse between spouses, parents and children or unrelated individuals who share the same home. Domestic violence charges can also arise from stalking, harassment or verbal threats.

If you have been accused of domestic violence, you are facing a criminal charge that can result in a restraining order, fines or jail time. In addition, domestic violence charges also affect child custody and visitation agreements.

At Dean & Barrett, we help clients defend against domestic violence charges and represent individuals accused of violating existing restraining orders.
