Criminal Defense for Domestic Violence and Protective Order Assistance
Belén Olmedo Guerra understands that aggressive criminal defense representation is required in cases involving domestic violence charges. These charges must be taken seriously. When accused of certain types of physical abuse (this includes spouse or child abuse), you may be presumed guilty before all of the facts are even shown. The penalties for a first conviction are harsh and can even include jail time. Subsequent convictions for domestic violence in Phoenix bring enhanced penalties and result in jail sentences.
It isn’t easy to get domestic charges dropped in Arizona. Sometimes, the only way dismissal occurs is if the victim will sign a drop-charge affidavit in a criminal or civil proceeding. Even with this signing, the district attorney may still choose to pursue charges against you. You need the knowledge and experience of Belén Olmedo Guerra.
