Any situation involving your spouse, significant other, or person who shares your home with you can quickly escalate into a serious legal issue.

  • Spouse
  • Ex-spouse
  • Partner

Understanding the Importance of Legal Counsel

Whether the alleged victim is choosing to press charges or law enforcement has made the arrest themselves, you will need a solid legal defense on your side. In the state of Kansas, law enforcement and the courts take domestic and family violence very seriously and work to punish this type of criminal offense harshly. Cases of domestic violence can also include additional crimes, such as assault, battery, aggravated assault, stalking, and more.
