Defending Domestic Battery Charges
In Illinois, almost every domestic disturbance call results in someone being arrested. If you have been arrested on this charge, Timothy J. Fiscella will work to build a strong and effective defense for you. He will seek to obtain a dismissal of the charge if at all possible. If you decide to go to trial, he will defend you with determination.
If you have been accused of violating a restraining order, you should not attempt to defend yourself. Timothy J. Fiscella can present your side of the story in court — working to overcome the charge or to minimize potential negative consequences.
Mitigating the Consequences
When a domestic violence charge cannot be dismissed or overcome at trial, it may still be possible to mitigate the consequences. If you are a first-offender, Timothy J. Fiscella can seek to avoid a jail time by getting probation or a conditional discharge. Often, these outcomes involve an appropriate treatment program, such as anger management classes or alcohol treatment.
