The state of Illinois takes domestic violence very seriously—but there’s more to it than that. Being convicted of domestic battery or aggravated domestic battery can result in you spending time behind bars, paying hefty fines, and living with the stigma of being a so-called “domestic abuser” for the rest of your life.

While no two cases are the same, it’s always important that you have a skilled, knowledgeable attorney by your side during this difficult process. The prosecution will attempt to prove that you’re guilty of abusing a family member, and you need someone who can help protect your reputation and your rights.
