Domestic Violence Committed to Justice

Indianapolis Domestic Violence Defense Attorney

Commitment to Justice

In Indiana, domestic violence charges are taken very seriously and can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony offense. In both state and federal courts, harsh penalties are imposed on people convicted of violent crimes.

At Hayes Law Office, we compassionately handle all domestic cases with diligence and discretion. Attorney Philip Hayes is an experienced trial lawyer who has proven strategies and more than 18 years of extensive trial experience handling domestic battery cases.

Types of Domestic Violence Offenses

These cases involve all types of domestic violence, family violence and spousal abuse, including:

  • Shoving
  • Hitting
  • Strangulation
  • Physical Child Abuse
  • Neglect of a Dependent
  • Invasion of Privacy
  • Criminal Confinement
  • Interfering with the Reporting of a Crime

Cases involving domestic violence can be emotionally charged and extremely overwhelming. These cases may require some serious research and investigation in order to clarify the facts of the case. At Hayes Law Office, you can depend on our skilled criminal defense techniques to help guide you through the process.

What are the Penalties for Domestic Violence in Indiana?

When the police are called to assist in a domestic incident in Indiana, either, or both parties will usually go to jail. Yet, even if the spouse or domestic partner is not interested in pressing charges, the state will usually proceed without the victim.

If a spouse is injured in a domestic altercation, the potential penalty can range from the A Misdemeanor level, which is punishable up to one year in jail and a potential $5,000 fine, up to a Class D Felony, which can result in a prison sentence. The penalties for domestic violence charges include probation, jail or prison time, fines, civil protective order restrictions and loss of gun rights.

For these reasons, it is extremely important to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney who fully understands the scope of the charges against you and is committed to resolving your case as favorably as possible.

Let Hayes Law Office Protect Your Rights & Freedom

Having a battery charge on your criminal history can seriously limit your potential opportunities for employment, housing and education. Furthermore, you may also be subject to negative stigma and damage to their reputation that may follow you for the remainder of your life. That is why Attorney Hayes will do whatever it takes to clear your name and help you get the best possible outcome in your case.
