Defending Those Facing Domestic Violence Charges In Pennsylvania

If you have been accused of domestic violence, your life could change very 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 very 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 the victim of false accusations.

Understanding Protection From Abuse Orders

An individual accused of domestic violence may also be the subject of a protection from abuse (PFA) order, also referred to as a restraining order or a protection order. These orders alone can turn a person's life upside down, forcing him or her out of the family home and away from the children. John Della Rocca can educate you about your rights under a PFA and defend you.
