False, Exaggerated And Retaliatory Domestic Violence Charges

At Barnes & Diehl, we offer sound legal advice and the aggressive defense of criminal charges for individuals in Richmond and throughout Virginia. As a complement to our family law practice, criminal defense attorneys Michael HuYoung and Craig Sampson are skilled in the investigation and defense of criminal charges related to a divorce, child custody and/or other family law issues. Violation of a restraining order, kidnapping or domestic assault charges can affect your family law case as well as your reputation and freedom.

Individuals involved in a divorce or Virginia family issues may find themselves facing false or retaliatory accusations of domestic violence, sexual assault or child molestation. These charges are often leveled punitively by a soon-to-be former spouse seeking to strengthen their position during a divorce or child custody action.

These charges are very serious and can result in fines, jail time and a permanent criminal record if not addressed immediately and thoroughly by an experienced criminal defense trial lawyer.
