 Cases involving allegations of domestic violence—one of my areas of concentration while a prosecutor—are always complex. Most commonly, they involve two individuals who share a home, sometimes share children and in certain circumstances still have love for the other individual or remember when things were better. Due to the complex nature of these cases, the Commonwealth prepares itself by using victim advocates and specially trained prosecutors who know how to investigate and prepare their cases. When I was a prosecutor, I ended my career as the captain of the unit that prosecuted sexual assault and domestic violence cases. Therefore, I am very familiar with the tactics employed by investigators and prosecutors to achieve a conviction.

Over my career, I investigated and prosecuted hundreds of domestic violence cases and I apply that experience everyday defending my clients in matters involving alleged domestic violence.

Another important consideration in defending crimes of domestic violence is the impact of a conviction on an individual’s right to carry a firearm. In Pennsylvania, if you are convicted of a crime of domestic violence, you will not be permitted to possess a firearm for the rest of your life. Therefore, if you are a gun owner and accused of a crime of domestic violence, it is very important to consult an attorney who has experience investigating, analyzing, negotiating, and litigating allegations of domestic violence at trial.
