Racine Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

Domestic violence itself is not a crime. It is a category of crime. If a person commits an offense (typically disorderly conduct or battery) that involves a victim who is a family member or a person with whom he or she is in a dating relationship, the crime is charged as one of “domestic violence” or “domestic abuse.”

If you have been arrested or charged with a domestic violence or domestic abuse charge, contact me, attorney Robert W. Keller, immediately. I am a highly experienced criminal defense attorney who understands Wisconsin’s laws and how to limit or eliminate the consequences of an arrest.

I Can Help You Avoid A Criminal Conviction | Kenosha Domestic Abuse Lawyer

Domestic violence offenses are prosecuted aggressively by most law enforcement authorities. In fact, the Wisconsin law provides that if police respond to a domestic violence call, one of the parties involved, usually the primary aggressor, must be arrested. The arrest generally leads to an immediate “no-contact” order issued by the arresting agency. This can be incredibly unsettling.

Domestic violence convictions expose people to jail time, probation, increased fines and lifetime prohibitions against the possession of firearms. Oftentimes, the prosecution proceeds even where the victim and other family members would rather not see the prosecution take place at all.

The preferred outcome of a domestic abuse prosecution is to avoid a criminal conviction altogether, either by way of a dismissal or an amendment to a noncriminal violation. This is very possible if handled appropriately. If you have been charged with disorderly conduct or battery as a domestic violence crime, call my office as soon as possible. I can seek removal of the “no-contact” order immediately, and I can help you avoid a criminal conviction.
