Norwalk Domestic Violence Criminal Defense Attorneys

Lawyers Defending people against Domestic Violence in Norwalk, Fairfield County and Across Connecticut

Crimes of domestic assault create a conundrum for local law enforcement officers in Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven counties who may be called to investigate disturbances between family members or couples. In many instances the victim is uncooperative because he or she has a close relationship with the alleged aggressor. Other times, the individual who is claiming to be a victim has fabricated a story to pursue an ulterior motive. Consequently police officers in Connecticut are trained to use other methods to recognize the signs of domestic violence, but these techniques are not always reliable. Regardless of whether or not you feel that the charges against you are justified, if you have been accused of a domestic crime in the state of Connecticut, you need to take the matter seriously. The criminal defense attorneys at Mark M. Kratter, LLC would like to hear your case. Contact them immediately to begin planning a solid defense strategy.
