Eagle County Domestic Violence Defense Attorney
If you are charged with any act of domestic violence in Eagle County, contact experienced Eagle County domestic violence defense lawyer Lindsey Parlin at once. In Colorado, domestic violence charges may be filed as misdemeanors or as felonies depending on the severity of the harm caused. A push, a slap, or a threat will probably be charged as a misdemeanor; a more severe act of physical violence will likely be prosecuted as a felony. Domestic violence cases may include menacing, harassment, assault, domestic battery, and kidnapping. Even if the purported victim of the domestic abuse takes back the accusation, after the state files a domestic violence charge, you are going to need an attorney’s advice and representation.
Almost anyone may be accused of domestic violence, and if you’re convicted, it will negatively impact your job opportunities, child custody arrangements (if you are divorced), and other aspects of your life. Penalties will vary, but in general, you may face jail time, steep fines, and a number of other consequences. A domestic violence conviction can also impact your relationship with other members of your family once they learn of the crime you have allegedly committed. Child care professionals and teachers can lose their professional licenses. You can also lose your right to own or carry a firearm if you are convicted of domestic violence in Colorado. Let Eagle County attorney Lindsey Parlin help defend your rights in court. Ms. Parlin’s law firm is located in the Leadville community, and currently serves clients in Eagle, Chaffee and Lake County.
