Domestic Violence - Offices of Lyle K. Porter

Have You Been Accused Of Domestic Violence?

If you have been accused of domestic violence, you must proceed with caution. The steps you take now may impact you for the rest of your life, so you want to make certain they are the right ones. You can benefit from working with an experienced lawyer who can guide you through the process, protecting your rights and presenting your side of the story.

At the Law Office of Lyle K. Porter in Lawrenceville, we understand that there are two sides to these stories, and sometimes police officers and prosecutors only seem interested in one of them. To make matters more challenging, prosecutors are often unwilling to drop charges even if the alleged victim wants to. With more than 20 years of experience, we know how to navigate the complex web of issues involved in these cases. We will advocate for you.

In addition to being charged with domestic violence, you may be subject to a protective order. This alone can change the way you live your life. We will advise you on how to deal with the protective order and help you move forward.

We have experience in the defense of all Georgia misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

  • V.G.C.S.A. and drug-related offenses
  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Aggravated assault and family violence battery
  • Armed robbery and theft offenses
  • Burglary and criminal damage to property
  • Fraud and white collar crimes
  • Sexual offenses
  • Violations of rules of the road

We also handle a wide range of post-conviction matters, including probation violations and appellate work.

When You Need Skilled Criminal Defense And Family Law Representation

In addition to our skill in criminal law, we are well-known for our family law representation. This is particularly important in family violence cases, as these often take place in the context of a pre-existing family dispute or they lead to a Georgia family law case.

If you are going through a divorce or a child custody dispute, we can either assist with that matter or work with the attorney who is already handling that case for you. We know how these cases interact. In fact, we are aware that angry spouses may make false allegations of domestic violence in an attempt to gain an upper hand in a divorce. One parent may falsely accuse the other of assault in an attempt to gain an advantage in a child custody case. Our experience and our reputation for taking on complex cases mean we know how to address these issues. We are willing to go to trial if that is what it takes to protect you.
