Domestic Assault Lawyer in Detroit

Experienced & Skilled Legal Counsel

A common misconception regarding domestic assault charges is they require the victim in question to have physical injuries at the time of accusation, though this isn’t the case. Charges can be brought upon you with or without injuries. This is why the counsel, care, and representation of a Detroit domestic violence lawyer, such as ours at Prain Law, PLLC, is essential in securing a positive future for yourself as the defendant in a domestic assault case.

Domestic assault in the state of Michigan refers to charges involving specific close relationships, including but not limited to the following:

  • Present or former spouses
  • Present or former people in a dating relationship
  • People who share a child
  • Present or former residents within one household

Depending on how many convictions have been made against you, penalties will vary. A first conviction will be treated with less consequence than a second or third. You can learn more about Domestic Assault according to Michigan Penal Code 750.81 by following this link. Aggravated domestic assault is handled similarly, except the crime is more serious as the victim must have received serious or aggravated injuries which required medical care as a result.
