How We Fight Your Family / Domestic Violence Case
One of the first ways we help you fight your Collin County domestic violence case starts with our free consultation, when we review the paperwork that you received when you left jail.
Conditions of Bond
The review of your paperwork includes looking at the conditions of bond. These conditions are the rules the court requires you to abide by while fighting your case. In a family/domestic violence case, often times the conditions of bond will prohibit any communication with the complaining witness. Being in close proximity to the location of the alleged incident, which may well be the home, is often not allowed as part of the conditions of bond.
These rules can create obvious problems if the parties are in a close and continuing relationship. At our free consultation, we discuss how the conditions of bond can be changed and assess whether an affidavit of non-prosecution, a statement indicating the complaining witness’ intent to have the charges dismissed, should be gathered and brought to the judge’s attention so that the conditions of bond can be amended.
Reviewing & Analyzing Evidence
One of the other ways in which we help fight your family/domestic violence case is by reviewing and carefully scrutinizing the evidence in the case to capitalize on mistakes that mitigate guilt. This evidence will often include:
- 911 calls
- Body camera footage from the responding and arresting officers
- Witness statements
- Offense reports
- Narratives from the officers in the case
- And more
The mistakes and inconsistencies in the evidence during our investigation will help us fight your case with either a jury trial or trial before the judge. We also pay close attention to statements made by the complaining witness to the officers which indicated at the time that he or she did not want you to be prosecuted, and the way in which any of those statements are inconsistent with the other evidence in the case—namely the reports generated by the officers in the case.
We also check to see if there are any pertinent omissions in the evidence, such as the photographic evidence of injury to you that may not have been documented by the arresting officers. An intense review of the evidence helps establish the arguments that will be used later to show that the State has not proven its case by the standard of “beyond a reasonable doubt” that is required to prove you guilty under the law.
