If you are accused of domestic violence it can turn your life upside down. Once the legal system is involved, the only thing “domestic” about domestic violence is the name - it is not something you and your family members can deal with alone. You need the assistance of an experienced attorney that can help your family navigate the justice system and help you resume a normal life. The upstate New York criminal defense attorneys at Ianniello Anderson, P.C. with offices located in Albany, Glen Falls, Saratoga Springs, and Clifton Park NY, have represented both victims and those accused of domestic violence. Having had experience from both perspectives gives our team a full understanding of just how difficult these situations are for all that are involved and we help those accused to manage the situation appropriately.
The Ianniello Anderson, P.C. team has represented many men and women in eastern upper New York that have faced domestic violence charges. The law says everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and we do our best to make sure the proof is actually there. All too often we see cases where the prosecutor is looking to make an example of someone, so charges are piled on, or where the accusations turn out to be just that - accusations and nothing more. We will fight aggressively to have the charges dropped but sometimes that is just not possible. In those instances, we will work with prosecutors in order to negotiate the most favorable plea deal possible.
Even if all charges are eventually dropped, the repercussions go far beyond the criminal realm. Being accused of domestic violence carries with it a huge stigma. Your family, friends, and employer may treat you differently for the rest of your life. It can affect your rights and damage the relationship you have with your loved ones.
If you are convicted, you could be sentenced to jail time, required to do community service, ordered to pay fines, required to attend counseling or anger management classes, and/or be placed on probation. You could also lose your children, your job, and your home.
