Facing Domestic Violence Charges? A Fresno Domestic Violence Lawyer Can Help Save Your Reputation

Jun 15, 2016

If you have been involved in a bad relationship and are facing domestic violence charges, you're probably very nervous about what is going to happen to you in court. After all, as you already know, you could be facing probation and even jail or prison. These are definitely things that you should be concerned about, since the courts don't usually take domestic violence accusations very lightly.
However, there is one additional thing that you need to be worried about as well -- your reputation. When your employer, friends, family and other people who you know find out that you are facing these charges, it's probably not going to be pretty. Things can get even worse if you are actually found guilty of these charges.
For one thing, you have to worry about how it will impact your career and your ability to keep your current job or find another one in the future. Having a domestic violence-related charge on your record can also affect things like your ability to rent an apartment, since many landlords are going to steer away from allowing someone who has this type of record to move into their units. It can even impact things like your dating life, since many people are going to be nervous about dating someone who has been convicted of domestic violence.
It's important to think about yourself and your reputation when facing these charges. Luckily, a domestic violence lawyer can help you every step of the way.
