It is important to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney right away when you have been accused of intentionally injuring someone by force, or when a protection order has been issued against you.
Lake County, Indiana, Domestic Battery Defense Attorney
The sad truth is that assault or battery charges usually arise between friends and family members. When you have been accused of battery what is done at the very beginning can make the difference between jail time, a deferral, conditional discharge, or even how often you are allowed to see your children.
Matt LaTulip represents people charged with:
- Assault and battery stemming from an illegal fist fight
- Aggravated battery, or battery with a deadly weapon
- Assault as a hate crime, or involving a child
- Domestic assault and battery
- Domestic abuse, including spousal abuse and child abuse
- Violation of protective order or restraining order
He will begin by immediately investigating the circumstances surrounding your arrest as part of building a strong defense. If there are extenuating circumstances that led to assault and battery charges, he will fight for a dismissal or reduction of the charges against you, deferred or conditional discharge, or leniency in sentencing.
If you have had a temporary restraining order issued against you, it is important that you obey the restrictions set forth by the order, even if the basis for the order was completed fabricated.
We will aggressively defend against the issuance of a final restraining order or protective order by demonstrating your innocence or rehabilitation.
