Anchorage Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer
If you have been charged with domestic violence in Alaska, it is very important to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Alaska has a zero tolerance stand on domestic violence and police have very little discretion in handling domestic violence calls. When a person calls the police alleging domestic violence, someone is getting arrested and taken into custody.
At The Law Offices of Herbert M. Pearce, I understand the stakes you are facing. I have more than 18 years of experience handling domestic violence defense cases for clients from Anchorage and throughout the surrounding areas. I am committed to protecting your rights, and making sure this criminal allegation has as little impact on your life as possible.
Fighting Domestic Violence Charges in Alaska
If you have been charged with domestic violence in Alaska, there is a lot at stake. You may face jail time and other harsh criminal penalties. If a restraining order has been issued against you, you may not be allowed to enter your own home or see your children. Your right to own a gun could even be compromised.
The consequences of a domestic violence conviction could last far into the future, affecting your ability to get a job, and even affecting your rights to child custody or visitation.
I have been practicing criminal defense and family law for more than 18 years, and I understand the criminal and personal consequences of a domestic violence charge. I aggressively fight for my clients’ rights in these cases, challenging evidence, witness testimony and other elements of the case at every step. I have successfully handled numerous domestic violence cases for clients from Anchorage, Palmer and throughout the surrounding areas.
