Defending Those Facing Domestic Violence Charges in Pennsylvania

If you have been accused of domestic violence, your life could change quickly if you do not defend yourself. With the help of an experienced Philadelphia domestic violence attorney, you may be able to minimize the impact this charge will have on your life.

Defense Strategies Geared Toward Protecting Your Rights and Reputation

In Pennsylvania, allegations of domestic violence (also commonly referred to as spousal abuse or domestic assault) are taken seriously. Even if the domestic conflict was the result of a misunderstanding and the alleged victim does not want to press charges, the prosecutor still may not drop the case. However, there are defense strategies available and Attorney John Della Rocca at The Law Offices of John Della Rocca can help you understand your options. He has been defending against these and other criminal charges since 1998 and can surround you with a strong defense.

He understands that the alleged victim may have other motives for making accusations of domestic violence. False allegations often stem from divorces and child custody disputes, with the accuser believing that the accusations will give him or her an advantage in the family law case. John Della Rocca will take steps to protect your reputation and keep you from being a victim of false accusations.

Understanding Protection from Abuse Orders

If you are accused of domestic violence, the alleged victim may request protection from abuse (PFA) order. These orders (commonly referred to as restraining orders) can have a drastic impact on your life. You may easily find yourself without a home and without the right to see your children. However, John Della Rocca can educate you about your rights under a PFA and defend you.
