Alaska Assault and Spousal Abuse Attorney
Your rights are of vital importance when facing a domestic violence charge. If you and your spouse are arguing and the police are called, one of you is usually leaving with that officer. At the Law Offices of Dan Allan & Associates in Anchorage, Alaska, we represent clients who are arrested and charged with domestic assault.
Zero Tolerance for Domestic Assault
Alaska has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to instances of domestic violence. An argument that increases in volume and aggression could bring the police to your house. The officer will take witness statements for the record and then arrest the alleged perpetrator. Simply put, police officers usually arrest someone if they show up at your door.
Recanting a Domestic Violence Accusation Is Not an Option
At the Law Offices of Dan Allan & Associates, we have witnessed cooler heads prevailing after a domestic violence arrest. However, if the alleged victim seeks to drop the charges, local prosecution will likely refuse. They control the course that the legal matter takes in conjunction with the police. Cases are not dismissed based on second thoughts. The alleged victim is not in control of the case in Alaska. A good defense attorney from the Law Offices of Dan Allan and Associates often balances the scale of justice in the favor of the accused.
Consequences of a Domestic Violence Charge and Conviction in Alaska
A domestic violence charge and conviction have dire consequences aside from the criminal aspect of your case. Jobs have been lost and perception as a spouse abuser exists. Personal and professional lives are thrown into chaos. That necessitates seeking qualified and seasoned legal counsel, as we are if you are charged with domestic violence.
