Memphis Domestic Assault Attorney

Order of Protection Lawyer in Shelby County

Accusations and convictions of spousal abuse or child abuse carry with them not just severe penalties but a cultural stigma. But, often these cases come down to conflicting statements from parties who may legitimately remember the same incident in very different ways.

At the Stegall Law Firm, Attorney and Counselor, I have spent my career representing clients in criminal defense cases, and I want to help you build a defense against accusations of domestic assault. Working with clients throughout Tennessee, I thoroughly examine the case, statements and police reports when preparing for trial and while exploring every opportunity to resolve your case with your interests in mind.

Criminal Defense Representation You Can Rely On

Though a domestic assault conviction on its own is a Class A misdemeanor, it can carry significant penalties and long-term repercussions. Individuals convicted of domestic assault lose their federal second amendment rights, and are permanently forbidden from owning or possessing firearms. A conviction can also permanently impact your ability to get or hold certain jobs.

It is critical that you fight against accusations of domestic assault to protect your civil rights

Particularly in cases where there is no physical evidence, and the case comes down to conflicting statements, I help you pursue a strong strategy aimed at avoiding conviction. With my experience and proven track record for representing criminal defense clients, you can be confident that my office will work closely with you every step of the way, keeping you informed and well represented.

Protection for Victims of Domestic Violence

Many accusations of domestic violence come down to misinterpretations, but many others are sincere charges brought against violent individuals who pose a sincere threat to others. For clients who need protection from violent partners, spouses or acquaintances, I can help you petition the court for an order of protection to keep you and your family safe.
