Domestic Abuse Defense

When it comes to accusations of domestic violence, the state of Oklahoma takes a firm stance on prosecuting Domestic Violence cases regardless of the truthfulness or veracity of alleged victims. Unfortunately, accusations of domestic abuse and violence are fueled by unchecked emotions and conflicting stories. The Police often make arrests based on limited information and the snap judgment of the officers.

Defending The Rights Of Those Facing Accusations Of Domestic Violence

At Smalley Law Firm, our criminal defense attorney has an in-depth understanding of Oklahoma's domestic violence laws and has the experience to know what it takes to fight your case. Whether you have been accused of assaulting your spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend, or same-sex partner or roommate, it's important to work with a lawyer who can gather the facts and protect you against false accusations involving any of the following:

  • Child abuse
  • Spousal abuse
  • Elder abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual violence
  • Dating violence
  • Stalking and harassment
  • Violation of a protective order (order for protection)

In short, the state considers any act inflicting physical harm or the threat of physical harm against a family member, partner or resident of the household to be an act of domestic violence. Whether violence was committed by or intimated toward a child, parent or other individual, the consequences of a charge and conviction will have a lasting impact that can damage an individual's personal and professional future and can even result in a loss of 2nd Amendment Gun Rights.

Penalties for a domestic violence conviction can vary. There are numerous aggravating factors such as the extent of bodily harm, repeat offenses, violence against a pregnant woman and various others that the prosecution will use to pursue a more serious charge.

As your attorneys, we can explain the charges you face, help avoid inflated charges and ensure your rights and your defense gets presented throughout the case.
